Steelers' Claypool said the Browns' playoff run will end next week originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
No one likes a sore loser and that’s exactly what Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool sounded like on Monday after the Browns knocked his team out of the playoffs.
During a TikTok live, Claypool seemed to be responding to a comment about the Steelers' 48-37 defeat when he said, “Bad loss, but the Browns are going to get clapped next week, so it’s all good.”

The comments come after the Browns stunned us all in the biggest upset of Super Wild Card Weekend, during which they exploded in the first quarter for 28 unanswered points.
Never mind the offensive dominance, the Browns snapped a 17-game losing streak in Pittsburgh and kept a typically strong Steelers offense quiet until a late push in the second half.
Claypool had five receptions and two touchdowns in the game, so he may have felt like he did his part.
Still, his comments weren’t exactly sportsmanlike, and the Kansas City Chiefs probably won’t thank him for further motivating the Browns ahead of their Divisional Round matchup on Sunday.
This was the first Browns' first playoff win in 26 years.
