Browns’ Baker Mayfield, Odell Beckham connect for 42-yard deep-strike vs. the Steelers
Since trading for him in March, the Cleveland Browns have failed to get wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. going. That doesn’t mean they can’t start doing so mid-season.
On Cleveland’s first drive of their Thursday night showdown with the Pittsburgh Steelers, quarterback Baker Mayfield targeted Beckham thrice. He turned his three targets into two receptions for 49 yards, including a 42-yard near touchdown reception. Watch below.

Beckham gashes the Steelers defense on a post-route that crossed the middle of the field. Mayfield hit him with a perfect pass, hitting him in stride. Unfortunately, after review, the originally called touchdown was called short. Beckham’s reception placed the ball on the one-yard line. One play later, Mayfield punched in a touchdown to give Cleveland an early lead.
Beckham’s numbers with the Browns are down. Heading into Week 11’s divisional tilt, the mercurial Pro Bowler had 44 receptions for 632 yards and a touchdown to his name.
