While Odell Beckham Jr. was a disappointment with the Cleveland Browns, the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver has provided significant impact for the Los Angeles Rams since signing with them in November. And in Monday night’s NFL Wild-Card Round game against the Arizona Cardinals, Beckham reeled in the first playoff touchdown of his eight-year career.
Beckham made an incredible catch for the first score of Monday night’s game, showing off tremendous hands and footwork to haul in a Matthew Stafford pass in the first quarter.

That’s vintage OBJ.
The touchdown led to plenty of reaction — and of course mocking of the Browns — on Twitter.

OBJ making the browns look even worse, if that’s possible.

If we'd told you one year ago that next year in the playoffs the Rams would have:
• Matt Stafford throwing a TD
• Odell Beckham catching a TD
• Von Miller getting a sack
…well, you would've been surprised. pic.twitter.com/uy8Ua2pomB
