CBS cameras replayed Mayfield's strut with play-by-play announcer Spero Dedes noting it seemed like the quarterback stared down Jackson "for what felt like an eternity".
Mayfield ended up throwing for 284 yards and three touchdowns, helping the Browns win for the fifth time in six games to improve to a 7-7-1 record on the season, and 5-2 since interim coach Gregg Williams took over for Jackson. And in truly epic fashion, Mayfield proceeded to stare down his former coach. Then he stares at him from over his shoulder.
"No idea what you're taking about", Mayfield told reporters.
Mayfield will surely be asked about this new incident during his postgame press conference.
Mayfield, though, didn't go into any further details regarding his relationship with Jackson. Mayfield has defeated the Bengals twice with Jackson on the sideline.
The last time? The Browns faced the San Francisco 49ers at home in Week 17 of the 2007 season with Derek Anderson at quarterback facing former Heisman Trophy victor, Chris Weinke for the Niners.
Mayfield was destroyed by critics, who said he should have been nicer to Hue.
