For better or worse Odell Beckham Jr. is always in the public eye. Some people want to see if Beckham Jr. can live up to the brand he’s built. Others hate him because they think he’s too self centered. But say what you want about Beckham Jr. the truth is he was exceptional in the Cleveland Browns 23-3 win over the New York Jets.
He went for 161 receiving yards and 1 touchdown looking flat out unstoppable at moments. First there was a one handed catch up the right sideline on a fade route. It was one of those plays that makes you jump out of your seat but Odell Beckham Jr. has routinely made these grabs throughout his career so it’s nothing new. Then OBJ caught a slant route and went 89 yards for a touchdown. That play broke the Jets’ spirit and it gave Cleveland some confidence to build on. When Beckham Jr. is playing this well then the Browns elevate their game to the next level. Which obviously helps Baker Mayfield and the results were 325 passing yards and 1 touchdown for the second year signal caller. You also have to give a shout-out to Myles Garrett who dominated with 5 tackles, 3 sacks, and 3 TFLs. Cleveland bounced back from their week one letdown against Tennessee and now it’s about putting together a string of wins. If they keep playing like this it’s certainly possible and Beckham Jr. has to keep leading the way.
