Justin Jefferson had a me sage for Odell Beckham Jr.'s haters after the Rams' 30-23 win over the Cardinals on "Monday Night Football."

The Vikings' receiver and LSU product wants everybody to admit that Beckham "was not the problem" during his rocky tenure with the Browns.

OBJ WAS NOT THE PROBLEM!! I hope yall see that nowCLOWNS

Indeed, Jefferson is right. Beckham wasn'tthe problem, and he's proving that as he hits his stridein Los Angeles.


Beckham had arguably his best performance of the season in the Rams' 30-23 Week 14 win over the Cardinals. Hecaught six pa ses for 77 yards and a touchdown Curley Culp Jersey while helping to catalyze the Rams' offense in the first half.

The score was a thing of beauty from Beckham.He ran a perfect route near the goal lineand beat the Cardinals' defensive back to the inside with a nice stutter-step move to open the scoring from the Rams. It marked his third consecutive game with a touchdown.

Incredibly, Beckham now has as many touchdowns in four games with the Rams as he did in his final 13 games with the Browns over the last two years. His production as a whole in Los Angeles has almost outpaced his work in Cleveland this yeardespite the fact that he has played two fewer games with the Rams.

If you exclude his first game with the Rams, during which Beckham played only 15 snaps, he is averaging 4.3 catches for 62 yards and Warren Moon Jersey a touchdownper game for the Rams. That translates to 1,054 yards and 17 TDs over a 17-game season. Certainly, the Rams will take those numbers for a No. 2 receiver.

It's also worth noting that Beckham's yards per catch average is the same with the Rams as it was with the Browns. What does that mean? It means that while it may seem like he's making more plays with the Rams, his catches with the Browns were of similar impact.They just weren't as frequent, as Baker Mayfield didn't target himas much as they never developed chemistry.


The Rams' offense certainly seems better with Beckham especially since they needed a replacement for Robert Woods. What about the Browns' offense? Well, they certainly haven't improved by releasing Beckham.

It's fair to point out that the Browns played two additional games without Beckham to start the year, and when factoring those in, they average 22.1 points per game, 200.8 yards and 1.1 pa sing TDs without Beckham. While their scoring may be a bit better overall without Beckham, it Corey Davis Jersey 's still hard to say that he was the problem with the Delanie Walker Jersey Browns' offense. They were certainly a more efficient pa sing attack when he was around.

And while Beckham was embroiled in some drama within the Browns' locker room that heated up when to social media, he certainly hasn't been a locker room malcontent for the Rams. In fact, he has served as a valuable mentor and source of encouragement forsecond-year receiver Van Jefferson already, as .

I was really down after the (San Francisco) game," Jefferson said. "Odell sent me this long list of people just talking bad about him, and how he can be better, and he said, Look, bro, Ive been there, Ive been through it before. Dont dwell on this. So that encouraged me a lot, for him Wesley Woodyard Jersey to do that.

Since that game, Jefferson has totaled 11 catches for 192 yards and three touchdowns.


It's fair that the Browns wanted to get a fresh start as Beckham and Mayfield struggled to connect, but it's also clear that Beckham wasn't the root of the problem. After all, Mayfield cryptically alluded to "internal things" that are plaguing Cleveland in an interview with NFL Network's Kurt Warnrer.

So, Cleveland still has some soul-searching to do as they look to earn a playoff berth in the crowded AFC. Meanwhile, it seems like the Rams have found something in Beckham and will look to see if he can stay hot as they battle for the NFC West title.
