The Cleveland Browns defeated the Detroit Lions, 13-10, on Sunday afternoon, as the AFC North franchise improved to 6-5 on the year.
Baker Mayfield had a tough day, completing 15 of 29 passes for 176 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions.
It’s been a tough couple of weeks for Mayfield, who’s playing through multiple painful injuries. The former No. 1 overall NFL Draft pick admitted he’s as “banged up” as he’s been in quite some time – maybe ever.
Sunday night, Mayfield was reportedly in no mood to speak with reporters.

“Tired of saying “we have to hold ourselves accountable” and we have to be better. And I’m sore but so what!” another fan wrote on Twitter.
“Oof. Not a good look. Teddy Bridgewater, meanwhile, answered pointed questions twice in a 20-hour span after the Broncos lost last week and he came under fire after pulling up and not trying to make a tackle on a fumble return,” another fan tweeted.
