By the looks of it, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool seems to be a little bitter following the team’s 48-37 loss to the Cleveland Browns in an AFC wild-card matchup between division rivals on Sunday night.
Claypool, who had five receptions for 59 yards and two touchdowns in the game, was interacting with fans on social media and breaking down players from the game on Monday when he shared his reaction to Pittsburgh’s loss.
“Bad loss, but the Browns are gonna get clapped next week. So all good,” the rookie said during the livestream.
Claypool wasn’t the only Steelers wide receiver to make headlines following the loss to the Browns.

JuJu Smith-Schuster was singled out by the Browns after first making himself a target leading into the wild-card round when he told reporters that he wasn’t worried about playing Cleveland.
“I think they’re still the same Browns teams I play every year,” Smith-Schuster said at the time. “I think they’re nameless gray faces. 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.”
STEELERS’ JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER STANDS BY ‘THE BROWNS IS THE BROWNS’ COMMENT AFTER WILD-CARD LOSS
After being proven wrong on Sunday night, Smith-Schuster didn’t walk back his remarks, instead saying the Browns had a good game.
“I don’t regret saying what I said,” he said during his postgame press conference. “I said ‘the Browns is the Browns.’ They came out and played a hell of a game.”

“There’s been games where you lose some, you win some, and today wasn’t our night,” Smith-Schuster continued. “Hopefully, the same Browns show up against the next opponent, and they go out there and do the same thing they did tonight and have a hell of a game.”
While it might not be the most graceful concession speech, the Browns happily move on to the AFC divisional round, where they will travel to take on the defending Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday at 3:05 p.m. ET.
