Cleveland Browns players take shots at former head coach in revenge victory

Adjust Comment Print

Possibly forgetting which team he now works for, Jackson slapped Randall's helmet as if he was congratulating Randall on the play.

Jackson was of course fired by Cleveland a few weeks ago and was quickly hired as a special assistant to Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis.

The Browns surged ahead 28-0 as former head coach Hue Jackson watched helplessly from the opposite sideline.

It's bad enough he was sacked as head coach of the Cleveland Browns earlier this season, but Sunday put the icing on the cake.

His new team - the Cleveland Browns - are starting to feel a bit like it's the good old days, too.

With the win, the Browns earned their second straight with interim coach Gregg Williams to improve to 4-6-1. Not only did tight end Tyler Eifert, linebacker Preston Brown, defensive tackle Ryan Glasgow and defensive end Carl Lawson end up on IR, but linebacker Nick Vigil and receiver A.J.

Mayfield threw for 258 yards and tossed four touchdowns with no interceptions in their 35-20 win on the road against their AFC North rivals. Green is out with a toe injury, and the Browns scored touchdowns on their first three possessions. He is the fourth rookie in National Football League history to have a rushing and a receiving TD in consecutive games. He's thrown for 2,242 yards and 17 touchdowns this season, making him a Rookie of the Year candidate. It provided Jackson with an opportunity to defeat the franchise that booted him last month, or the Browns a chance to take down their old coach.
