Nick Bosa's clearly been holding a grudge for a long time, and he got his revenge on Baker Mayfield Monday night.

At the end of the second quarter of Monday night's Browns vs. 49ers game, Bosa got loose and drove Mayfield into the turf, then pretended to wave a flag over his lifeless corpse, mocking Mayfield's infamous flag-planting celebration.

It wouldn't officially go in the books as a sack, since the officials ruled it intentional grounding, but a replay showed Mayfield's knee clearly down before he released the football.

“I had to get him back for it,” Bosa said after the game. “All in good fun."

Nothing about Monday night was fun for Mayfield. Bosa was totally unblockable and was in the backfield almost constantly, finishing the game with four total tackles, two sacks, two tackles for loss, a fumble recovery, a separate forced fumble and five quarterback hits.

Mayfield was picking himself up from the turf all night, but Bosa had the time of his life and was a hero among his Buckeye brothers.

Bosa is the only 49ers player in the last 25 years with two sacks, a forced fumble and fumble recovery in a single game, according to ESPN Stats & Info.
