Odell Beckham Jr had a field day out on the park in the Wild card playoff match against the Arizona Cardinals. Playing in his first playoff match since 2016, the wide receiver definitely grabbed the headlines with his strong showing, right from the beginning.

OBJ started off the game in fine fashion as he scored the opening TD for the Rams after going over cornerback Marco Wilson, to give them a 7-0 lead. It was his sixth touchdown at his new franchise only on his ninth appearance for them, already eclipsing his tally for the Cleveland Browns which he managed in over two and a half seasons.

He continued his form against the Cardinals, with another brilliant piece of play, this time it was something which he hasn’t done much during his career. Odell Beckham Jr channelled his inner quarterback skills during the third quarter of the match to pick out Cam Akers for an incredible touchdown.

Odell Beckham Jr received a pass from Rams’ quarterback Matthew Stafford and dropped back when he saw Cam Akers make a great run down the right touchline. He made a 40-yard pass, which Akers plucked out off thin air.

The pass from the wide receiver helped set the Rams for a 7-yard score to Cooper Kupp, extending the lead to 28-0 over the Arizona Cardinals.

After his struggles with the Cleveland Browns, not many gave OBJ a chance to revive his career and were also very sceptical of what he would bring into his new side- the LA Rams. However, he has managed to brush off all sorts of doubts and emerged as one of the best running backs of the game in the recent past.
