Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield didn’t mince phrases when requested about teammate Myles Garrett’s actions within the closing seconds of his workforce’s 21-7 victory Thursday evening over the Steelers. Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin, however, refused to remark.

Garrett ripped Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet off with eight seconds remaining within the sport, then swung the helmet at Rudolph and hit Rudolph within the head. A combat ensued in the long run zone, with Pittsburgh middle Maurkice Pouncey punching and kicking Garrett. 

The incident marred the Browns’ victory over their largest AFC North rival. Mayfield addressed it immediately in a postgame interview. 

“The reality is, (Garrett is) going to get suspended,” Mayfield stated. “We don’t know the way lengthy, and that hurts our workforce. We can’t do this. We can’t proceed to damage this workforce. It’s inexcusable.”

The Browns improved to 4-6 with the victory however seemingly will likely be with out Garrett for a while — maybe for the rematch at Pittsburgh on Dec. 1. 

Tomlin didn’t elaborate when requested about Garrett’s actions. 

“I’ll keep my thoughts to myself,” Tomlin stated. “You saw what happened in the end.” 

When requested if he had no remark, Tomlin replied, “That’s exactly what I said. I have no comment.”

The solely query now could be what punishment Garrett will face from the NFL. ESPN’s Louis Riddick, a former participant, really helpful a season-ending suspension.
