We focused earlier on how Cleveland Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. needed a big game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on “Thursday Night Football.”

OBJ has struggled connecting with Baker Mayfield thus far this season. That changed big time early Thursday night in Cleveland.

Check out Beckham Jr. burning Steelers corner Steven Nelson on a 42-yard catch to set the Browns up first-and-goal from the one on their initial drive of the game.

That was a straight go route from Beckham. He simply burned Nelson off the line and down the field.

Baker Mayfield, who completed 4-of-4 on the drive, scored a touchdown from one yard out to give Cleveland an early 7-0 lead.
