Odell Beckham Jr’s Tweet Amid Bills’ Overtime Loss to Vikings Goes Viral



While the Buffalo Bills experienced one of the craziest regular-season upsets by the Minnesota Vikings at Highmark Stadium on Sunday, November 13, the most sought-after free agent in the NFL, Odell Beckham Jr., was watching the rollercoaster of a matchup.

The Bills appeared to have the game in the bag after narrowly keeping the Vikings from scoring late in the fourth quarter. After that huge stop, Beckham tweeted, “UNBELIEVABLE GAME !!!!” which quickly racked over 25,000 likes.

However, in a stunning turn of events, Bills quarterback Josh Allen fumbled the snap on their own 1-yard line which turned into a surprise touchdown for Minnesota. Allen answered by quickly getting the ball down the field to set up kicker Tyler Bass for a 29-yard field goal, which sent the game into overtime. After Buffalo’s defense held Minnesota to a field goal on their first possession. Allen had the win in his hands but threw a red-zone pass straight into the arms of Vikings cornerback Patrick Peterson, sealing Minnesota’s 33-30 win.

While Bills edge rusher Von Miller has been publicly campaigning for Beckham to join him in Buffalo for months, and previously gloated that the move was already “said and done,” choking in overtime likely wasn’t the best showcase for a team looking to enlist the three-time Pro Bowler to Buffalo.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Sunday morning that in addition to the Bills, four other teams remain in competition for his services: the Cowboys, Giants, Chiefs, and 49ers. Schefter noted that the team he signs with “is expected to at least be a contender to advance in the postseason,” and unfortunately for Buffalo, after Sunday’s defeat, the Bills sit in third place in the AFC East with a 6-3 record.

The clock is ticking on OBJ’s final decision. PFF analyst Ari Meirov tweeted, “Beckham Jr. was fully cleared this past week, per @JayGlazer. Teams wanted to bring him in for a visit this week, but OBJ first wants to take about two weeks to get himself into football shape. He could sign with a team shortly after Thanksgiving.”
