Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. made his return to MetLife Stadium, which he called home for five seasons with the New York Giants, and in the shadows of New York City and the bright lights of Broadway, the multi-time Pro Bowler put on a show late in the third quarter.
Running a slant route from the left side of the field with the Browns backed up deep in their own territory, Beckham caught a pass from quarterback Baker Mayfield and sprinted 89 yards for his first touchdown with the Browns.
Beckham's touchdown gave the Browns a 23-3 lead over the New York Jets with 3:32 to play in the third quarter, a score that would hold in Cleveland's first win of the year.
With the Jets bringing a heavy rush in the middle of the field, Beckham ran a short slant, caught the ball at the Cleveland 21-yard line, and then, sprinted the final 79 yards untouched down the left side of the field for the touchdown.
As if to say, “I’m home,” Beckham pretended to turn a key, open a door and threw both of his arms up before his teammates joined the celebration in the end zone.
The Browns' Twitter account even got in on the fun, tweeting "Odell, who?" with a picture of Beckham sprinting for the endzone. It was in reference for former team defensive coordinator and interim head coach Gregg Williams' jab at the receiver earlier this week.
Earlier in the game, Beckham made a one-handed catch along the sideline to set up the first of three Austin Seibert field goals in the first half.
Through the first three quarters of play against the Jets, Beckham turned his four receptions into 143 yards and one touchdown.
Including the four passes against the Jets, Beckham had 11 catches for 214 yards and the 89-yard touchdown in two games with the Browns.
Mayfield’s touchdown pass to Beckham was the fourth-longest pass play in Browns history and the longest since former first-round pick Brandon Weeden completed a 95-yard throw to wide receiver Josh Gordon on December 1, 2013.
