The Cleveland Browns nearly pulled off the play of the NFL season on Sunday, but it was spoiled by a dropped pass.
In the second quarter, Baker Mayfield received the snap, handed it off to Nick Chubb, who reversed it to Jarvis Landry, who reversed it to Odell Beckham Jr.
From the Browns’ own 38, Beckham had to step up and avoid a sack. While running with the ball, he threw off one foot all the way to the Baltimore Ravens’ 5-yard line. The pass was on-target but went through the hands of Damion Ratley.
Here’s the play:
