Perhaps odd when you consider the Green Bay Packers were playing the Cleveland Browns to see Packers linebacker Clay Matthews wearing the opponent’s gear.
Not all that much, in fact. Matthews’ father, Clay Matthews Jr., played 16 seasons for the Browns. Clay III is wearing his father’s No. 57, although you can’t really tell from this shot.

Ironically, Matthews was instrumental in sealing the Packers’ victory over the Browns. He laid the hit that caused DeShone Kizer to flutter a pass that was intercepted by Josh Jones in overtime.
