This matchup was met with some tension from both sides. Last week Odell Beckham Jr. said Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who at the time was the defensive coordinator of the Browns, instructed his players to injure the wide receiver when Cleveland faced off against the New York Giants in 2017.
Williams, in retaliation, acted like he had no idea who Beckham was, by jokingly saying "Odell, who?"
But in the end, it was the Browns who got the last laugh, and they made sure Williams will see their savagery.
Williams also went on to talk about how he thought Beckham was not as talented as he seemed in the press conference, and Beckham responded to those criticisms with his huge night against the Jets defense. He had six catches for 161 yards and a touchdown in the Browns easy win.
Beckham played like he had something to prove. He looked like the elite wide receiver fans have been expecting to watch week in and week out. Should the Browns continue to get this type of production, the Baker to Beckham connection will match up with the best in football.
