Nick Bosa got some revenge as the San Francisco 49ers crushed the Cleveland Browns on Monday night.
Bosa sacked Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield twice and punctuated a pass rush that resulted in intentional grounding by pretending to plant a flag in the grass at Levi’s Stadium.

That was a bit of payback after Mayfield famously tried to plant an Oklahoma flag in the artificial turf at Ohio Stadium in 2017 after leading the Sooners to a win over Bosa and the Buckeyes.
After the game, Bosa said he was making sure Mayfield heard from him all night.

Mayfield apparently also ticked off other 49ers, including veteran cornerback Richard Sherman, by refusing to shake hands before the game.
