Baker Mayfield has been in the crosshairs of critics for the past few weeks, and his wife, Emily Mayfield, has heard enough of the hatred of Cleveland Browns fans.

Ms. Mayfield made a post on her Instagram story on Monday defending her husband and calling out those who inflicted Sunday’s 47-42 defeat on him.

“For all of you ‘fans’ who blame Baker for yesterday’s loss, wake up. It was one hell of a game, and this game could have ended either way. He left everything in the field.

“You really don’t know what you have. I’ve seen him give it his all and change the whole culture in CLE, but he gets so little credit for that. He never asks for approval and, despite the hatred, carries the weight every day. If you are a real fan, SUPPORT our guys. Baker and everyone else. The hatred does NOTHING to them. “

After a tough performance against the Vikings, Mayfield bounced back against the Chargers, although the Browns were unable to take the win. He passed for 305 yards and finished nearly 72 percent of his passes with two touchdowns.

“I thought we were efficient at passing,” Mayfield said in his post-game press conference. “We just didn’t make the pieces we needed, so I won’t be happy about it. We didn’t win the damn game. That is really all that is important to me. I’ll be tough on myself anyway. I didn’t do enough today to win the game. “

The pressure is increasing this year for Mayfield, who is hoping to secure a contract extension with the Browns before stepping into the final year of his rookie deal next season. There’s also the fact that the Browns are considered a legitimate Super Bowl contender, thanks to an NFL best run game and greatly improved defense.

Mayfield described his 155-yard non-touchdown performance against the Vikings as “piss-poor” and posted his own message on social media after experiencing some heat, which reflected much of what his wife was saying.

“People seem to forget how I got here,” Mayfield wrote on an Instagram story. “Nothing was given. Deserved everything. Ups and downs. Came out stronger and better every time. God blessed me with the mental and physical strength not only to face adversity, but also to grow through trials that no one else could face. I will always strive to get better … and I will continue to have that attitude.

“Profit is my priority, always has been and always will be,” he added. “That’s why I was brought to Cleveland to change that narrative and influence others. As I said, we have a great group. I have her back and she has mine. I’ll fight for these guys every week. Off to the next challenge. “

The big story that led to the battle with the Chargers was that Mayfield struggled with a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder, forcing him to wear a harness. The former overall number one injured her shoulder while trying to make an interception against the Texans in Week 2.

Mayfield insisted this wasn’t the reason for his sloppy game and looked fine on Sunday.

Mayfield and the Browns have a chance to recover at home against Kyler Murray and the undefeated Cardinals next Sunday. A win and solid performance in this game would go a long way in changing the tale of everything that happens in Cleveland.
