Not sure what it is about the Browns and Hue Jackson but it seems whenever he is on the same field as that team he is on the losing sideline.
Which is exactly what happened yesterday when Jackson—the newest coach in Cincinnati—found himself on the losing side of the score when the Browns came into Cinci and pummeled them 35-20.
The win was Cleveland’s first road win since 2015, snapping a streak of 25 straight road losses that was one shy of the Lions' NFL record.
Baker Mayfield threw a career-high four touchdown passes—including this impressive grab by rookie running back Nick Chubb—to put the Browns up 28-zip with just over two minutes left in the first half.
After that any scores by the Bengals were basically the Browns defense letting them have it versus their prevent defense.
In fact, at one point the Browns literally gave the Bengals the ball when Cleveland safety Damarious Randall—who predicted during the week that if Bengals receiver A.J. Green didn't play, the Browns would dominate—picked off Cincy QB Andy Dalton in the second quarter, ran out of bounds and handed the ball to Jackson.
Jackson responded by tapping him on the helmet.
Or maybe at that point he was just tapping out.
