Odell Beckham Jr. had a career-long, 89-yard touchdown reception, and Myles Garrett recorded three sacks as the Cleveland Browns posted a 23-3 victory over the New York Jets on Monday night at East Rutherford, N.J. Baker Mayfield completed 19 of 35 passes for 325 yards with one interception and the touchdown to Beckham, who had six catches for 161 yards. Beckham's big showing came at MetLife Stadium, the venue he called home for five seasons with the New York Giants before being traded to the Browns during the offseason.

Odell Beckham Jr. had a career-long 89-yard scoring reception and Myles Garrett recorded three sacks as the Cleveland Browns posted a 23-3 victory over the New York Jets on Monday night at East Rutherford, N.J. Baker Mayfield completed 19 of 35 passes for 325 yards and the touchdown to Beckham, who had six catches for 161 yards. Beckham's big showing came at MetLife Stadium, the venue he called home for five seasons with the New York Giants before being traded to the Browns during the offseason. Nick Chubb added a rushing touchdown and Austin Seibert kicked three field goals for Cleveland (1-1), which impressively rebounded from a season-opening 43-13 loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Odell Beckham Jr.'s return to New York's MetLife Stadium Monday was eventful from the get-go. The Cleveland Browns receiver was spotted wearing a $2 million watch during pregame warmups ahead of a matchup with the New York Jets. He then made a spectacular one-handed sideline grab that brought back memories of the iconic catch he made during his New York Giants days on the game's opening drive.

Odell Beckham Jr. may have worn a $350,000 watch this past Sunday, but the Cleveland Browns wide receiver showed little flash let alone substance in his team's Week 1 loss. And now, he is drawing criticism not just for the fashion statement but also his lack of production. Beckham had seven catches for 71 yards with no touchdowns as the Browns got thumped by the Tennessee Titans.

Gregg Williams' “dirty” coaching tactics apparently claimed another victim: Odell Beckham Jr. The former New York Giants receiver blasted Williams for coaching his former Cleveland Browns players to take “cheap shots” at opponents, adding that one of those hits resulted in an ankle injury that changed Beckham's life “forever. If I was a coach, I would never teach what he teaches. But that's just him and what he does,” Beckham said, blasting the Browns' former interim head coach and current New York Jets defensive coordinator, who was embroiled in the bounty scandal that rocked the NFL in 2012.

Odell Beckham Jr. is "ready to go" for the season opener on Sunday, Cleveland Browns coach Freddie Kitchens said Friday. Just a day earlier, the wide receiver said he was dealing with a lingering hip injury that prevents him from "opening up and sprinting." Beckham didn't play in any preseason games but was a full participant in practice on Friday, The Plain Dealer reported.

It's not a stretch to say this is the most eagerly anticipated season in this iteration of the Cleveland Browns. Fresh off a 7-8-1 season in which it appears it found a quarterback for the long haul in Baker Mayfield, Cleveland made a big offseason splash with the acquisition of New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. Add Beckham to the talent already on hand -- defensive end Myles Garrett, wide receiver Jarvis Landry, defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson and left guard Joel Bitonio -- and you have a team some think could win the AFC North.

The NFL's most heavily hyped team hasn't had a winning season in a dozen years. The Cleveland Browns last made the playoffs in 2002 and last won a playoff game in 1995, when their then–head coach Bill Belichick led them to a Wild Card victory over the New England Patriots. In 2016, Cleveland won just once, and in 2017 not at all.

The Browns have offensive stars, but the defense made a statement on Friday night.

There is the tongue of the country, and then a distinctive local idiom known to linguists as Browns bemoaning. A fine example of this was on display recently at the Flat Iron bar, in the shadow of the rusted rail bridges that cross the Cuyahoga River, as barber Nick Hilf rattled off the litany of heartbreak that has befallen the city's beloved NFL team. The Fumble: when Cleveland's Earnest Byner coughed it up in the AFC title game the very next year, again against the Broncos, again costing the Browns a shot at the Super Bowl.
