5 Bold Cleveland Browns predictions vs. Miami Dolphins in Week 12
5. OBJ finally scores another touchdown
When the Cleveland Browns made the blockbuster trade for Odell Beckham, Jr., they expected their offense to finally be explosive. He’s definitely helped and has shown flashes of the playmaker we remember playing for the New York Giants but the consistency is not there.
This isn’t due to him losing any of his athleticism, but instead, it feels like there’s just no chemistry for him and Baker Mayfield. This is most evident in his inability to get touchdowns this season.
After 10 games now, OBJ has 48 receptions for 692 yards and just one touchdown. That’s a far cry from what was expected of him when he landed in Cleveland. Still, it feels like a matter of time before he and No. 6 get on the same page and start piling up some big plays.
They started out doing that last week as Beckham hauled in a seven-yard pass on their opening drive. Two plays later, he caught it deep as he went 43-yards for a touchdown. Unfortunately, that was reversed as he was ruled down at the one — making it a 42-yard catch.
He was rather quiet after that but it was a reminder of how quickly he can make an impact. With the Dolphins struggling mightily on defense this season, OBJ should be able to break the streak and finally score his first touchdown since Week 2.
