Getty Images Odell Beckham Jr. of the Baltimore Ravens had a message for the Browns after Sunday’s loss.
Odell Beckham Jr. wasn’t able to get “revenge” on the Cleveland Browns, but the Baltimore Ravens receiver is counting on another chance at his former team.
Beckham only had one catch against the Browns, but it was an important one. He caught a slant over the middle and scampered 40 yards for a touchdown. At that point, the touchdown acted like a backbreaker and gave the Ravens a 24-9 lead heading into the third quarter.
But there, the Browns weren’t about to go down without a fight and eked out a 33-31 victory, securing it with a 40-yard field goal from Dustin Hopkins as time expired.
Browns players took to social media to celebrate the win, with Beckham echoing a post from tight end David Njoku.
“See you on the street,” Beckham wrote in a comment on Njoku’s post, adding a playful middle finger emoji.
As it stands now, all four teams in the AFC North would reach the postseason in a crowded playoff race. It wouldn’t be a surprise to see the rivals face off in the postseason with more at stake.
Odell Beckham mended fences with Browns
Before the game, Beckham said he harbors no hard feelings toward the Browns despite their ugly breakup in 2021.
“I mean, I made some great bonds and memories with the guys over there,” Beckham told reporters on Nov. 9. “Once you’re on a team, you build a brotherhood that lasts much longer than anything else.”
“I don’t want to say, ‘Oh, this is another game for me,’ but it will be fun to play against these guys who are friends and brothers of mine.” But certainly no animosity on my part. Lots of love and respect.”
Beckham endured a difficult few years in Cleveland after being traded from the New York Giants in 2019, managing just 114 catches for 1,586 yards in 29 games. After the ugly ending, Beckham signed with the Rams and was a key contributor during their Super Bowl run.
Browns unhappy with Ravens after win
The Browns were somewhat upset after their win against the Ravens, particularly over a hit that injured cornerback Denzel Ward. While Ward was making a tackle, he was hit with a helmet-to-helmet hit by Ravens tackle Ronnie Stanley.
“I don’t know (if it should have been reported),” Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said. “We’ll make it a league, let’s see what they say.”
Browns players were a little more vocal about the situation.
“Yeah, man, I see they didn’t call any blindside blocks in this game,” Browns safety Grant Delpit said after the game. “We had two, one on A-Walk (Anthony Walker Jr.), one on Denzel. So it is what it is.”
The Browns don’t have much time to dwell on missed calls. The Pittsburgh Steelers come to town on Sunday and first place in the AFC North could potentially be up for grabs. The Steelers won the first game on September 18th 26:22. Pittsburgh has won two games in a row and is coming off a 23-19 victory over the Green Bay Packers.
