The celebration came after Mayfield threw a touchdown pass, and then ran to the sidelines to celebrate with offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens. The brief celebration gesture appeared to show Mayfield pretending to “expose his privates.”

Mayfield went 27-of-37 for 284 yards and three touchdowns in the win.

The celebration also came before Mayfield later hilariously threw shade at his former coach Hue Jackson, who currently works for the Bengals. After throwing a 66-yard-pass to seal the win late in the game, Mayfield stared down Jackson for what seemed like an eternity on the sidelines.

The Browns — who have gone 5-2 since Jackson was fired — will finish their season against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, where a win will give them their first winning season since 2007.
