In a close game on Sunday, the Los Angeles Rams beat the Baltimore Ravens, even though they were outnumbered and outgunned. It was a good game for Odell Beckham Jr., who had a nice comeback in the 20-19 victory. He made a lot of important catches down the stretch and caught the go-ahead touchdown with less than a minute left.
Odell launched a punch in an effort to make a play and knock the ball out, but wound up striking Clark in the behind.

It is very unusual for players to attempt to punch the opposition’s football away, which explains why Beckham was not penalized on the play and Clark made no move to retaliate.
The Rams’ second punch of the game came from Beckham. Tensions looked to be running high in the first quarter as Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey took a shot at his own defensive huddle partner Taylor Rapp. Rapp attempted retaliation but was immediately separated from his comrades on the pitch.
The Rams overcame Stafford’s outburst and interceptions to upset Baltimore 20-19, with Beckham scoring late in the fourth quarter.

Beckham signed a one-year, $1.25 million deal with the Rams in November, after his release from the Cleveland Browns.
He was released by the club after his father, Odell Beckham Sr., posted an 11-minute video on Instagram alleging that Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield was not throwing the ball to Beckham when he was open.
