The Giants (8-4) played the Steelers (7-5) Sunday in Pittsburgh, and both teams All-Pro wide receivers Odell Beckham, Jr. and Antonio (oh, I meant Ronald) Brown got together for a night out. Both players posted pics on Beckham, Jr.s IG account and Brown's Twitter with videos of the two being BFFs.
This collectively confused and pissed off several Giants and Steelers fans about the two opponents for today's game, acting too close for comfort before the kickoff.
Every NFL fan knows that Beckham, Jr. and Brown are two of the league's most gloating wideouts after they score touchdowns. During the second quarter of the game, Ben Roethlisberger threw a 25-yard pass to Brown who was heavily covered in the end zone, yet Brown was impressively able to hold onto the ball to score the touchdown. As you see in the clip above, that's when Brown started to get his shimmy shimmy ya on, which made his boy Odell crack a big smile. Game recognize game, right? Luckily for the Steelers, no unsportsmanlike conduct penalty was thrown for this one, though.
The Steelers ended up winning the contest 24-14. Brown finished with six receptions and 54 yards, and Beckham, Jr. had 10 catches with 100 yards.
After the game Beckham, Jr. needed to address certain people who were talking about the Giants' loss earlier today. If you're with him and the team, he says, stay on board.
