Baker Mayfield's wife upset over question about Freddie Kitchens' t-shirt

Tuesday, 03 Dec, 2019

That was an obvious reference to a photograph of Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens wearing a "Pittsburgh started it" T-shirt appearing on social media.

After Sunday's 20-13 victory over the Browns, the Steelers presented the game ball to none other than center Maurkice Pouncey, per Diana Russini of ESPN.

When these two teams were last on the field, Browns defensive end Myles Garrett had an episode of rage. Not to be outdone, Cleveland wide receiver Jarvis Landry had a message of his own, emblazoned, of course, on a shirt that he wore as he arrived at Heinz Field.

Following the game, a few players on the Steelers blasted the head coach for his shirt.

Even if Kitchens' shirt wasn't a factor in motivating the Steelers, an National Football League head coach should know what he is getting himself into if he does something like that.

It was a hard-fought contest against their division rival, but the Steelers ultimately emerged victorious over the Browns in Pittsburgh.

"I thought it was pretty stupid", veteran Steelers lineman David DeCastro said. I just don't get that. "It got a little numb, took some medicine and went back out there so we'll see". What are you thinking?

With Sunday's loss, the Browns fell to 5-7 and sit third in the AFC North. "It's just not smart".

If only these teams played one more time this year... A T-shirt didn't cause us to give up 40-yard passes.

"I asked exactly one t-shirt question after the game". In a statement, the Browns explained that Kitchens's daughters had given him the shirt for his birthday and that he had just worn it to the movies. "He gave a great answer, saying 'I've done much worse.' amusing, and struck the right note".
