Odell Beckham, Jr. ran a great route on third-and-10 to haul in a 13-yard pass as he helped the Cleveland Browns offense move down the field
He hasn’t been on the field since Week 7 of 2020, but Odell Beckham, Jr. returned finally against the Chicago Bears and looked no worse for the wear as he hauled in a 13-yard catch on 3rd-and-10 to help the Cleveland Browns move down the field on their opening series.
On the play before that catch, OBJ seemed to be held but the refs apparently didn’t agree.
They kept their flags in the pocket but it didn’t matter since OBJ was able to run a solid route on the next play and find an opening in the defense to haul in the pass.
Unfortunately, the Browns ended up leaving the field with no points. Quarterback Baker Mayfield had an apparent touchdown on a third-and-long pass to Demetric Felton but he slightly overthrew the rookie.
Head coach Kevin Stefanski ended up going for it since they were in no man’s land at the Chicago 38. It was a little too far to kick the field goal and the difference in yardage from a punt would have been minimal.
They were unable to convert, however, as Mayfield was sacked by Robert Quinn for a nine-yard loss which gave the Bears the offense near midfield.
Cleveland’s defense will have their hands full with rookie quarterback Justin Fields but the return of Odell Beckham, Jr. gives them hope that they can compete with any team.
