The Cleveland Browns lost a rough one in Week 6 as they fell to the Seattle Seahawks 32-28, blowing a second-quarter lead. The team had a punt blocked and turned over the ball four times in the sloppy outing, but were able to keep the game within reach until quarterback Baker Mayfield was picked off for the third time with 2:41 left to play.

Mayfield’s pass went off the hands of Dontrell Hilliard and was caught by Seahawks linebacker K.J. Wright, ending the Browns’ drive. The interception was his 11th of the season, the most in the NFL and the most for a Browns quarterback through six games since 1984, when Paul McDonald had 12.

Mayfield also got banged up during the game, leaving the field with a hip injury in the third quarter. He underwent x-rays but returned without missing any snaps.

But while the Browns clearly weren’t having any fun as they fell to 2-4 on the year, the Seahawks were keeping it loose, celebrating a second-quarter touchdown by doing the iconic choreography to ‘N Sync’s “Bye Bye Bye” in the end zone.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson finished the game 23-of-33 for 295 yards with two touchdowns. He is still yet to throw an interception this season. Seattle improves to 5-1 with the victory.

The Browns have a bye week next week, and they’ll next take on the New England Patriots on Oct. 27.
