It didn’t take long for Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool to start trash-talking the Cleveland Browns after their loss.

Claypool decided to open up a live chat on Instagram, sharing his thoughts after the Browns steamrolled the Steelers 48-37 in an AFC Wild Card game in Pittsburgh on Sunday night.

Apparently, Claypool believes Baker Mayfield and his Browns teammates have no chance against the Kansas City Chiefs next Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.

Take a listen to Chase Claypool offer his assessment on the Browns-Chiefs matchup.

There probably are a lot of Cleveland Browns fans yelling “Scoreboard!” in Claypool’s direction after his comments. One thing is for sure, though. Cleveland is moving on and Pittsburgh is going home.

Cleveland Browns Troll Juju Smith-Schuster After Victory

In the meantime, the Cleveland Browns had a lot to celebrate after beating the Steelers. It snapped a 17-game losing streak to Pittsburgh and was the team’s first playoff win since 1994.

But Cleveland players also had something sweeter to fuel their partying: Revenge.

Players cheered “The Browns is the Browns” in the locker room after their victory. That’s how Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster categorized his division rivals before the game.

“I think they’re nameless gray faces,” he said before the game. “They have a couple good players on their team, but at the end of the day, I don’t know. The Browns is the Browns.”

Cleveland Browns players took extra glee in their win after that remark. Video from inside the locker room shows Cleveland players mocking Smith-Schuster’s dance and calling out the wide receiver.

“The Browns gonna be the Browns,” running back Kareem Hunt screams out in an Instagram Live video, with guard Wyatt Teller responding “same old Browns, huh?!”
