Baker Mayfield said he turned his right ankle running out of bounds in the first quarter, but said he it did not affect him. Asked if the issue may linger, he simply said "no."

The false start by Russell Okung that wasn't called -- the Chargers scored their third touchdown despite an obvious false start -- happened on the Chargers side of the field. But Hue Jackson said the official on his side of the field told him the refs simply "missed it." Defensive tackle Larry Obunjobi offered this thought: "It was one of those plays where you have to keep playing, even though sometimes the referees miss things. You still have to finish the play."

Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers was asked what advice he'd give Baker Mayfield. Rivers' response:

Jackson on loss: 'I take total responsibility' (0:35)
Mayfield on struggles: 'I'm gonna go to work and get it fixed' (0:44)

Baker Mayfield said he will be hard on himself after losing to the Chargers: "It doesn't matter what they do. I gotta do my job."

Gordon, Rivers lead Chargers to 38-14 blowout of Browns

Philip Rivers threw two touchdown passes to Tyrell Williams -- and the veteran quarterback threw a block -- and Melvin Gordon had three TD runs as the Los Angeles Chargers banged around Cleveland rookie Baker Mayfield and the Browns, 38-14 on Sunday.

The Browns put a clunker on the field in losing 38-14 to the Chargers. Los Angeles rushed for 246 yards, Baker Mayfield threw two interceptions and got little help form his receivers, who could not catch two touchdown passes. This one-sided score didn't truly accurately reflect the way the Chargers dominated and controlled the game.

With half the fourth quarter remaining, the Chargers have rushed for 243 yards, 8.1 yards per carry.

A Baker Mayfield interception sets the Chargers up for a touchdown and a 28-6 lead. I'm pretty sure this is not a Browns team built to come back from that second-half deficit.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Browns should most be lamenting missing opportunities in that first half. They were inside the Chargers 40 six times on offense and got just two field goals. Philip Rivers, meanwhile, guided touchdown drives of 57, 89 and 77 yards. Los Angeles leads 21-6.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

It sure looked like officials missed a blatant false start by Russell Okung on that TD pass from Philip Rivers to Tyrell Williams. Blatant missed call. Browns down 21-3 with 51 seconds left in the half.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Baker Mayfield has not left the game, but he is limping a bit. He appeared to tweak an ankle at the end of a scramble in the first quarter. He's laboring a bit, and is not as consistently sharp as he has been.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Tyrell Williams caught passes of 44 and 45 yards, the second for a touchdown as Williams took the ball from Damarious Randall. The difference between the Chargers having two touchdowns and the Browns none? LA's receiver caught the ball.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Baker Mayfield has taken a lot of hits. With 12:47 left in the second quarter, he has been sacked three times.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

Greg Joseph's 33-yard field goal gets the Browns on the board, but they Browns wasted good field position after starting at the Chargers 33. Damion Ratley missed a potential touchdown catch, then the offense couldn't get a first down after getting to second-and-6 at the 15.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Browns were down two receivers when the game started. Now Rod Streater is out with a stinger in his neck. Antonio Callaway, Jarvis Landry and rookie Damion Ratley are the only active receivers. That could lead to more touches by Duke Johnson.

Pat McManamon ESPN Staff Writer 

The Chargers started this game with some serious energy. Philip Rivers guided a touchdown drive on LA's first possession, going 57 yards in five plays and just 2:32.

Ben Fawkes ESPN Staff Writer 

Per ESPN Stats & Info, Cleveland is 4-1 ATS this season after going an NFL-worst 4-12 ATS in 2017. The Browns are also 6-0 ATS in their past six games against the Chargers.

No surprises among Browns inactives. Full list: quarterback Drew Stanton, wide receiver Breshad Perriman, defensive back Tavierre Thomas , linebacker Tanner Vallejo, offensive lineman Earl Watford, wide receiver Rashard Higgins and defensive lineman Carl Davis.
