Odell Beckham Jr Lit Up New York With A Stunning Performance On His Return To His Former City
Odell Beckham Jr put on a sensational performance on his return to New York last night.
The former New York Giants wide receiver made another outrageous one-handed catch and scored the longest touchdown of his career in Cleveland Browns' win over the New York Jets.
Beckham also wore a watch that's reportedly worth $2million having been criticised for wearing a $200,000 watch last week against Tennessee.
He saved his best for the bright lights of the city he used to call home in a 23-3 drubbing for the Browns at MetLife Stadium.
The 26-year-old is famed for his one-handed catches, including the incredible touchdown grab against Dallas Cowboys in 2015.
And in the exact same spot of MetLife Stadium with the same right hand, he came down with another one-handed catch.
Just three minutes into Monday night's clash, Beckham escaped the attention of cornerback Nate Hairston and held onto a Baker Mayfield pass for a 33-yard gain.
And in the third quarter, he caught a pass from Mayfield before taking off all the way to the end zone for an 89-yard score - the longest touchdown reception of his career.

He also showed up at MetLife Stadium wearing a watch that's reportedly worth 10 times more than the one he sported last week and only 10 of them have ever been made.
The 26-year-old spent five seasons with the New York Giants before being traded to the Cleveland Browns this summer.
A former first-round pick, Beckham signed a five-year, $90million deal with the Browns to move away from New York.
Ahead of his return to the city on Monday night, the wide receiver appeared on a massive billboard in Times Square which read "New team, who dis?".
It's fair to say Beckham enjoyed his return to the Big Apple and guiding his Cleveland side to a 23-3 win.
He told ESPN: "I feel like I've lost enough games, period. And I've lost enough games here, so to leave this one with a win is a good feeling."
