Odell Beckham consoles 49ers’ Deebo Samuel after Rams win
Odell Beckham Jr. consoled an emotional Deebo Samuel on Sunday after the Rams defeated the 49ers in the NFC Championship Game.
The Rams wide receiver, who will now face the Bengals in his first-ever Super Bowl, kissed the 49ers on the bench after San Francisco lost to rival NFC West, 20-17.
Samuel had 72 yards in the game and a touchdown.
Beckham, meanwhile, had over 100 receiving yards in Sunday’s game for the first time since 2019, while still a member of the Browns. The 29-year-old receiver also earned a $750,000 incentive with the win, according to ESPN’s Field Yates, with a chance to cash in on $1 million with a Super Bowl win.
The former first-round pick signed with the Rams in November after being released from the Browns amid contention with the organization.
After Sunday’s win, LeBron James congratulated Beckham on earning his ticket to Super Bowl 56.
“@OBJ is going to the SuperBowl!!! Did you all see the game he just got? EARNED NOT GIVEN!! » james tweeted.
The Rams will host the Bengals at their home, SoFi Stadium, on Sunday, February 13.
