The Browns clearly still have ill feelings toward former head coach Hue Jackson, who is now a defensive assistant Cincinnati Bengals. In the second quarter of this week’s game against the Bengals, Browns safety Damarious Randall intercepted Andy Dalton along the Bengals sideline and handed the ball to Hue Jackson.

Randall has been pretty vocal about Jackson since he was fired as the Browns head coach earlier this season. After the Bengals hired Jackson, Randall jokingly tweeted that they hired him because the Bengals still had two games to play against the Browns.
In other words Hue we play the browns twice tell us what you know ...— Damarious Randall (@RandallTime) November 13, 2018
In the days leading up to the game, Randall guaranteed a Browns win if Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green missed the game, which he did.
It had to be a feel good moment for Randall and the Browns who went 3-36-1 over the two and a half years that Jackson was the head coach. .
After the game, Randall said giving Jackson the ball was “something I’d always said I would do”:
With a 35-20 victory over the Bengals, the Browns now have their second win in the three games since Jackson’s firing.
