Odell Beckham Jr. offers sneak peek on Week 1 opponent

We know the Browns will travel to New Jersey this season to take on the New York Jets.

We know the Browns are a popular team when it comes to scheduling prime-time, national-TV games.

We know a Browns-Jets matchup on Monday night would have a historical link, as the Browns hosted the Jets in the first Monday night game Sept. 21, 1970.

Odell Beckham Jr. says he knows more.

“Just seen the schedule, it’s funny how God and the universe works…. week 1 surprise,” he tweeted Wednesday night.

Beckham played at MetLife Stadium for five years with the Giants before being traded to the Browns on March 13. A matchup with the Jets would be a quick return to his former home.

“See u week one.” he commented on an Instagram post by Jets safety Jamal Adams.

The regular-season schedule hasn’t been released and is guarded tightly by the league. But prime-time games, particularly in Week 1, are determined earlier, so Beckham may have the correct inside information.

The entire schedule is expected to be released within the next few weeks, possibly next Thursday.

The NFL has scheduled two Monday night games the last several years. Browns-Jets would be the earlier game, with a likely 7 o’clock start.

The Browns beat the Jets 21-17 on Sept. 20, a Thursday night, last season. Baker Mayfield came off the bench to lead the victory that snapped Cleveland’s 19-game winless streak.
