Browns WR Odell Beckham Jr. reacts to Jarvis Landry’s touchdown vs. Steelers
Despite the fact that the Cleveland Browns just encountered arguably the strangest week of practice that any team in NFL history has ever experienced leading up to the postseason, the AFC North franchise seems to be pretty excited about finally getting on the field.
With Cleveland quickly going up 14-0 on arch-rivals Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday evening, injured Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. wasted absolutely no time in taking to social media to express his excitement.
After the Browns initially went up 7-0 less than 15 seconds into the AFC North showdown on a defensive score, thanks to a major miscue from the Steelers’ offense, Cleveland then doubled up Pittsburgh as veteran wideout Jarvis Landry used his skills in the open field to find the end zone. With quarterback Baker Mayfield finding Landry down the field, Cleveland’s top pass-catcher then ran down the field and across the goal line for six points.
Of course, Beckham Jr. and Landry have been friends since all the way back to their collegiate playing days for the LSU Tigers.

As for the Browns as a whole, Cleveland took the No. 3-seeded Steelers without its head coach in Kevin Stefanski–in addition to several key players due to the league’s COVID-19 protocols.
With the team encountering somewhat of a coronavirus outbreak this past week, Cleveland barely practiced leading up to its wild card matchup in Pittsburgh. Nonetheless, the Browns haven’t missed a beat as the first quarter rolled on.
