VIDEO: Browns’ Jarvis Landry appears to mock JuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers after upset playoff win
The Cleveland Browns scored a huge upset on Sunday night, as they eliminated the Pittsburgh Steelers in their highly-anticipated wildcard matchup. There was a lot of back-and-forth between these two teams in the buildup up the game, with Pittsburgh star JuJu Smith-Schuster unsurprisingly taking center stage. After the win, Browns wide receiver appeared to have taken a not-so-subtle jab at Smith-Schuster in his post-game celebrations.
Here’s a look at Landry busting out the talking hands gesture in front of the cameras, which is presumably aimed towards the Steelers WR (h/t the Browns on Twitter):

Prior to the game, Smith-Schuster took a vicious shot at the Browns, expressing how he believes that Cleveland is “still the same” side we’ve all grown accustomed to over the years. Needless to say, Landry and the rest of the Browns proved the outspoken Smith-Schuster completely wrong on Sunday.
Cleveland will celebrate their huge victory tonight, but they will need to start their preparations for their next opponents in the playoffs. It’s going to be a much tougher test for the Browns, who will be facing Patrick Mahomes and the defending champs, the Kansas City Chiefs, in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. They have a week to get ready for their tilt against the Chiefs on Sunday.
