George Pickens makes a catch similar to Odell Beckham’s on TNF

If you were too busy waiting to see if Aaron Judge would tie Roger Maris on Thursday night, you missed a crazy Odell Beckham-like catch off Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver George Pickens during game two of “Thursday Night Football.” on Amazon Prime Video.

In the first quarter, with the Browns leading 7-0, Steelers quarterback Mitchell Trubisky threw Pickens to the right sideline. The ball was thrown a little behind the rookie catcher, but he was able to contort his body and stick his right hand out to catch the ball out of the air.

Pickens told reporters Tuesday that he was open nearly the entire time in the Steelers’ Week 2 loss to the Patriots.

“I’m only saying that because I’m a big guy who runs in the low 4.4 seconds,” Pickens said, according to the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. “I always have a step over someone and my step is naturally longer than the other person’s, and I’m actually fast. I’m always going to take a step and I always feel like, 99 percent of the time, I’m open even though the ball is in the air and the defender has time to recover. But I’m open as soon as I get off the line.”

Another angle of the catch shows Pickens nearly perpendicular to the sideline.

Pickens’ stunts draw comparisons to Odell Beckham Jr.’s catch against the Cowboys in 2014, a game the Giants lost.

The Steelers led the Browns in the two-minute warning before halftime at FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland, when the world got its second look at the Brownie the Elf logo.
