The Cleveland Browns got blown out at home during Week 6 by the Los Angeles Chargers, and wide receiver Jarvis Landry and a few of his teammates left the locker room before fulfilling media obligations, something head coach Hue Jackson wasn't aware of until Monday.
The Browns lost by a final score of 38-14. It was a rough day for Cleveland's offense and defense, and some of the players weren't in the mood to talk with reporters postgame. Upon learning that some of his guys left the locker room early, Hue Jackson expressed disappointment.
“I did not know that,” Jackson said, via Josh Edwards of 247 Sports. “I'm disappointed that happened. There is nothing to run from. When we play good, everybody stayed. When you don't play well, don't run. We have to do everything the right way.”
Jarvis Landry is one of the leaders on the Browns and needs to set a good example for the young players on the team. The talented wideout only had two receptions for 11 yards versus the Chargers, but he can't let his poor performance affect his demeanor. No player wants to speak with the media after a tough loss. However, it shows and builds character when you face the press and acknowledge your struggles.
Browns rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield had a poor day at the office on Sunday. The No. 1 overall pick finished 22-of-46 for 238 yards and one touchdown and two interceptions. Mayfield was sacked five times and had a QBR of just 12.7. Cleveland is now 2-3-1 on the season. They take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road in Week 7.
