Having been selected to the Pro Bowl for a fifth straight season, Jarvis Landry is no stranger to the event's festivities.
So perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise that when it came to Thursday's Skills Challenge, the Cleveland Browns wide receiver was the star of the show. Entering the event's fourth and final challenge, Elite Pro Bowl Dodgeball, Landry turned in a virtuoso performance, putting the hands that have consistently made him one of the league's top receivers to good use.
With Landry and Browns running back Nick Chubb serving as the final two competitors for the AFC, the duo found itself squaring off against New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Cameron Jordan and Dallas Cowboys linebacker Jaylon Smith. Chubb's elimination left Landry as the last man standing for his conference, with the LSU product soon eliminating Jordan.
Down to a winner-take-all situation, Smith fired a pass toward Landry seeking the event's final elimination. Landry, however, caught the intended strike, eliminating Smith and securing an overall 7-4 victory for the AFC.
Acquired in a trade with the Miami Dolphins in 2018, Landry has amassed 164 receptions for 2,150 yards and 10 touchdowns in his two seasons with the Browns. In addition to earning his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl selection after leading Cleveland with 83 receptions for 1,174 yards and 6 touchdowns in 2019, the 27-year-old Landry was the Browns' nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.
