On the biggest stage of them all, Beckham wasted no time entering the spotlight as he hauled in a 17-yard touchdown pass Matthew Stafford to put the Rams ahead 7-0 over the Bengals in Super Bowl 2022 on Sunday night. Beckham then pulled in a 35-yard pass to set up the Rams’ second touchdown — this one going to Cooper Kupp.

Beckham created separation from Bengals cornerback Mike Hilton, then turned back in the end zone to jump up and secure the catch for the game’s first points.

The former Giants wide receiver, who joined the Rams midseason after getting released by the Browns, has been a strong fit in Los Angeles. In the Rams’ three playoff games before Sunday, Beckham had piled up 19 receptions (on 23 targets) for 236 yards and a touchdown. He was especially active in the NFC Championship, recording nine catches for 113 yards against the 49ers to help punch the Rams’ ticket to the Super Bowl.

Beckham and his girlfriend Lauren Wood are also expecting the birth of their first child any day, but first, Beckham took the field for the biggest game of his career.
