Beckham flashed a peace sign – Hill’s famous celebration – on a 40-yard touchdown reception on a pass from quarterback Lamar Jackson. Hill and the Dolphins are on their bye this week, so the star wideout was given a chance to watch some of the action in the NFL.
Yeah they fining people for that buddy 😑 https://t.co/N9KzQWPKok

Hill has used the celebration dating back to his time with the Kansas City Chiefs, but he has been fined for it before. Even so, the move is popular, and he has used it in some big moments.
CHIEFS RETAKE THE LEAD. #NFLPlayoffs

The touchdown grab in the Ravens game was Beckham’s only catch of the day, and his team ended up losing to the Browns 33-31. Baltimore blew a huge lead after Beckham’s score put the team up 24-9 in the third quarter.
The Baltimore loss is notable for the Dolphins, who are 6-3 on the season, as the Ravens are now 7-3. This gives Miami a chance to eventually leap past the Ravens in the AFC standings and get a higher seed for the playoffs.
While Baltimore didn’t get the win, it was good to see Beckham find the end zone for the second time this season. He entered Baltimore’s Week 10 game with 19 receptions for 218 yards and one score in seven games.
This season has been a bit of a resurgence for Beckham, especially since he missed the entire 2022 season due to a torn ACL.
An electric target in his prime, Beckham has five 1,000-yard seasons in his NFL career and three seasons with double-digit receiving touchdowns.
It’s cool to see him pay homage to Hill, who has been arguably the best receiver in the NFL so far this season. Through nine games, the Dolphins star has 69 catches for 1,076 yards and eight touchdowns. He leads the NFL in receiving yards and receiving touchdowns.
The Dolphins and Ravens face off later this season on Dec. 31 in what could be a huge game for playoff positioning.
