The Bengals are now likely to lean on Jeff Driskel, who replaced Dalton against the Browns, in a starting role with Tom Savage, who the Bengals claimed off waivers from the 49ers, as Driskels backup. The team also has Connor Cook on the practice squad.

Another revolutionary idea instituted by the new coaching staff was to get Mayfield some easy passes via the talented running backs that they employ out of the backfield in Duke Johnson Jr. and Nick Chubb. Across six games from his debut in Week 3 to their Week 8 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Mayfield attempted just 27 passes to players lined up in the backfield. In the three games since the firings, Mayfield has attempted 21 passes to players lined up in the backfield. His passer rating on those passes is 145.3.

Week 12 fantasy football reactions — Baker Mayfield, Rob Gronkowski and Philip Rivers

The importance of Hue Jacksons firing to the Cleveland Browns organization cant be stressed enough.

Sorting the Sunday Pile, Week 12: Browns are Americas new team, Baker gets revenge on Hue Jackson

Coaching matters. Never let anyone say otherwise. The Browns future went from dimly lit to shining bright after the team cut bait with the second-worst coach in NFL history, statistically speaking.

Midseason dismissals tend to be frowned upon since NFL teams prefer to maintain continuity and not throw the organization into upheaval. The Browns, however, decided to live dangerously and dismissed both head coach Hue Jackson and offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

Secondly, it would mean the Steelers probably end up hosting the Chargers. The No. 4 seed in the AFC is a nightmare this year because whoever lands that home playoff game is likely going to see L.A. show up on Wild Card Weekend. The Chargers shouldnt care about playing at home because of their weak home-field advantage, and they will have played most of the top teams in the NFL by the time the playoffs get here. Theyre battle-tested and dangerous. And the alternate to that? Hosting the Chiefs if Los Angeles can walk down Kansas City. Finishing fourth in the AFC is a nightmare. 

Cleveland Browns: Young playmakers are coming into their own

For two-plus years, Browns faithful endured losing, inept decision-making and a selfish approach from a head coach who continually threw his players under the proverbial bus. Jackson never had any answers; he only deflected the blame while managing a woeful 3-36-1 record.
