While watching Odell Beckham Jr. thrive in the playoffs with the Los Angeles Rams, NFL Twitter took shots at the Cleveland Browns and Baker Mayfield.
The final game of Super Wild Card Weekend took place on Monday night, featuring a battle between NFC West rivals in the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals. Perhaps the star of the first half was Rams wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who scored the first touchdown of the game with an impressive catch in the end zone.
With Beckham thriving, NFL Twitter decided to poke some fun at the Cleveland Browns and their starting quarterback, Baker Mayfield.
NFL Twitter takes shots at Browns, Baker Mayfield after Odell Beckham goes off for Rams in playoffs
Prior to joining the Rams, Beckham was on the Browns. But after Beckham’s father posted a video of his son being open during games but being ignored by Mayfield, and a tweet from Los Angeles Lakers star LeBron James to “free OBJ,” the team and wide receiver met and mutually agreed to part ways. After clearing waivers, Beckham signed with the Rams, and he has thrived ever since.
In eight games with the Rams, Beckham caught 27 passes for 305 yards and five touchdowns on 48 targets. In his six games with the Browns this season, Beckham caught 17-of-34 targets for 232 yards and zero touchdowns.
This was also the first time that Beckham has played in a playoff game since the 2016 season, where his New York Giants were blown out by the Green Bay Packers 38-13. In that game, Beckham caught four passes for 28 yards on 11 targets.
Beckham is back in the playoffs, and he is thriving with the Rams.
