Chargers vs. Bengals live stream: Watch NFL Week 14 game online

The Los Angeles Chargers host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday for a Week 14 matchup as they try to keep pace with the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots in the AFC playoff picture.

The Chargers, with a 9-3 record, are one game behind the Chiefs for the AFC West division lead. They cannot earn a first-round bye in the playoffs without winning the division, so they need to take care of business down the stretch to avoid the No. 4 seed. The Chargers play the Chiefs in Kansas City next week in a game that could decide the AFC West. 

The Patriots are 9-3 and enter Week 14 with the No. 2 seed in the AFC. They own the tiebreaker over the Chiefs as a result of their Week 6 win at Gillette Stadium. New England does not play Los Angeles this season. If the Chargers secure the No. 4 seed, they would be a potential Divisional Round opponent for the Patriots. 

Here’s how to watch Chargers vs. Bengals online.

Baker Mayfield calls Hue Jackson "fake" in response to "First Take" criticism

Baker Mayfield calls Hue Jackson "fake" in response to "First Take" criticism

Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield had a super awkward handshake with his former head coach and current Bengals special assistant Hue Jackson after Cleveland's win over Cincinnati on Sunday, and the drama between the two didn't end there.

Mayfield also told reporters in his post game press conference that he didn't like Jackson joining a division rival so soon. On Monday, Mayfield called Jackson "fake" on Instagram in response to ESPN's Damien Woody criticizing the Browns quarterback during Monday's episode of "First Take." 

Check out Mayfield's Instagram comment in the tweet below.

The Browns are 2-1 since Jackson was fired. Mayfield has been fantastic over that three-game span with nine touchdown passes with only one interception. 

Mayfield is living up to the hype as the No. 1 pick in the draft, and with Jackson no longer in the fold, his performance and confidence seem to be on the rise.

Handshake with Baker Mayfield sums up Hue Jackson's rough Bengals-Browns game

Handshake with Baker Mayfield sums up Hue Jackson's rough Bengals-Browns game

Sunday's Week 12 game between the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals is one Hue Jackson will want to forget.

Jackson was fired by the Browns on Oct. 29. He went 3-36-1 as Browns head coach in two-plus seasons, and was hired by the Bengals as a special assistant on Nov. 12.

Jackson was on the Bengals' sideline Sunday and his former team appeared to take great pleasure in handing him another loss. Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield shook Jackson's hand after the Browns' 35-20 win, but the rookie signal caller couldn't get away from the embrace fast enough. 

Here's a look at the awkward exchange:

Mayfield was asked about the handshake in his post-game press conference, and he gave an honest response to the situation:

Earlier in the game, Browns safety Damarious Randall intercepted Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton and gave the ball to Jackson on the Cincinnati sideline.

Ouch.

Social media reaction to Jackson's afternoon also was not kind, to say the least.

The Browns have won back-to-back games for the first time in several seasons, and even though they won't make the playoffs in the AFC this season, there's no question that firing Jackson has made a positive difference in the team's performance.
