GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Odell Beckham Jr. scored his first touchdown as a member of the Los Angeles Rams in the fourth quarter on Sunday afternoon on a 54-yard pass from Matthew Stafford. The score narrowed the Green Bay Packers' lead to 36-25.
Beckham, who signed with the Rams on Nov. 8 after being released by the Cleveland Browns, slipped behind cornerback Rasul Douglas. Stafford let it fly, and Beckham made the catch over his right shoulder for the TD. The Rams converted the 2-point attempt to make it a two-score game.
The touchdown reception was Beckham's first since Oct. 4, 2020. He had gone 10 games without a receiving TD.
Douglas had extended the Packers' lead to 36-17 at the end of the third quarter with a pick-six. It was the third straight game Stafford threw a pick-six.
The Rams had dug themselves a 10-0 first-half hole before Stafford dropped a deep pass into the hands of sprinting second-year receiver Van Jefferson as cornerback Chandon Sullivan fell to the ground. Jefferson sprinted another 30 yards after the catch for a 79-yard touchdown.
It was Stafford's longest passing play since 2013 and is tied for the second-longest of his career, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. It also was the longest reception of Jefferson's career.
