Nick Bosa hasn’t forgotten Baker Mayfield’s celebration of Oklahoma’s 2017 win over Ohio State.
After Mayfield’s Sooners upset Bosa’s Buckeyes a pair years in the past in Ohio Stadium, Mayfield grabbed an Oklahoma flag, waved it and planted it within the O at midfield. Bosa and Mayfield’s paths crossed once more on Monday night time, when the Mayfield-led Browns confronted the 49ers, who drafted Bosa with the second total choose in 2019.
After Bosa pressured Mayfield into an intentional grounding penalty late within the first half, he broke out a flag celebration of his personal.
“I had to get him back for it,” Bosa stated after the sport. “All in good fun.”
Bosa continued the enjoyable after the sport.
In 2017, Oklahoma pressured Mayfield to apologize shortly after his celebration. In an interview with GQ earlier this 12 months, although, he made clear that apology was fully empty, maybe stoking the flames in Bosa’s eyes.
I start to ask him how heartfelt that apology really was, on a scale of 1 to 10, however I can barely get the query out earlier than he solutions. “Zero,” he says. He repeats himself forcefully, wanting me proper within the eye in order that I do not miss the purpose. “Zero. Absolutely not.”
Mayfield went on to say he believed most Ohio State followers had moved previous it, given his prominence in what’s anticipated to be a Cleveland turnaround.
Mayfield would possibly be proper about Buckeye followers, nevertheless it appears Bosa has not moved on — and an apology for this one does not appear possible. And contemplating Bosa’s dominant efficiency — he sacked Mayfield twice and would’ve had one other on the intentional grounding penalty, enjoying a big function in a 31-Three win — the oft-loquacious Mayfield in all probability will not have a lot to say, both.
