There was some LSU on LSU crime during the Rams-Vikings game on Sunday.
Minnesota’s Justin Jefferson recorded his 2,758th career receiving yard in the third quarter, surpassing fellow LSU star Odell Beckham Jr. for the most receiving yards through a player’s first two seasons in the NFL.
It just so happened Beckham was on the opposing sideline for the moment and made sure to respond later in the game.
In the fourth quarter, with the Rams up 20-13, Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford found Beckham in the back of the end zone for a touchdown to put Los Angeles up by two scores.
Beckham celebrated the touchdown by breaking out the Griddy dance, which was popularized by Jefferson and has become his signature celebration move.
Beckham and Jefferson reportedly have a good relationship with one another, so it was all in good fun on Beckham’s part as he trolled his friend.
In fact, Beckham had plenty good reason to break out into celebration himself. It was the 29-year-old’s fourth touchdown in six games since signing with the Rams mid-season.
Beckham previously had zero touchdowns in six games with the Browns this season before he forced the team to waive him.
The former Pro Bowl star has seemed to have found a resurgence in LA, tallying 20 receptions for 248 yards to go with his four touchdowns as he has helped put the Rams in position to win the NFC West.
