LOS ANGELES (AP) — When Robert Woods walked down onto the SoFi Stadium field last month to congratulate the Los Angeles Rams on winning the NFC championship, nobody wanted to talk football with him amid the confetti and celebration.
Odell Beckham Jr. cheered Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase two short years ago, enjoying every minute as the duo led their alma mater LSU to the national championship.
