He was not expected to have a big role, given he just showed up last week.
But Beckham was on the field and finished with two catches on three targets.
So not much has changed since he left Cleveland.
Kidding aside, it was a rough night for Beckham and the entire Rams offense.
Matthew Stafford threw two interceptions in the 31-10 loss to the San Francisco 49ers and the NFL world went wild on Twitter with reactions to the game and Beckham’s debut.

Plenty Of Time To Turn It Around
This week will mark Beckham’s first full week with the Rams.
Los Angeles is on a bye this week before taking on the Green Bay Packers, which was a top option for Beckham as he sought out a new home.

Beckham chose the bright lights of Los Angeles along with a veteran quarterback in Stafford.
Yet upon his arrival, the Rams played terrible against a 49ers team that was previously 0-4 at home.
Is there an OBJ curse in place for any quarterback throwing him the ball?
Matthew Stafford has his worse game of the season the the same game as Odell Beckham Jr’s debut.

Watching how Beckham’s fits with the Rams is going to be fascinating.
Baker Mayfield had a tendency in Cleveland to make bad decisions by trying to force the ball to Beckham.
If Stafford regresses at all with Beckham out there, the Rams are going to be wondering why they signed him in the first place.
One fair note from Monday is that Kupp still had 11 receptions for 122 yards, so it’s not like the Rams abandoned their go-to option.
