Baker Mayfield Blames Browns Fans For Team’s Struggles (Video)

Baker Mayfield Blames Browns Fans For Team’s Struggles (Video)

Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns eked out an ugly 13-10 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

On the heels of getting blown out 45-7 by the New England Patriots the week before, Mayfield put together a stat line of 176 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions on 15-of-29 passing against a Lions group that now sits at 0-9-1 on the year.

After posting a QBR of 8.6 on Sunday, the third-worst of his professional career, Mayfield refused to speak to the media.

On Monday, he attempted to right that wrong. Unfortunately, along the way, he also managed to throw Browns fans under the bus over the team’s struggles.

When asked about hearing boos from the crowd on Sunday, this was Mayfield’s response:

“Those are probably the same fans that won’t be quiet while we’re on offense and trying to operate,” Mayfield said. “So, don’t really care.”

Yikes.

This isn’t the first controversy to befall the Mayfields over the past 24 hours. On Sunday, Baker’s wife, Emily, accidentally blasted his Browns teammates on social media – only to delete the post shortly thereafter.

And this all of course comes on the heels of not one, but two different wide receivers calling him out.

It feels like Baker’s days as the starting quarterback of the Browns are numbered at this point.

Can he turn things around? Sure, maybe. Will he, though? It’s increasingly looking like the answer is no.
