Beckham was wearing “Joker”-inspired cleats, and Landry had on gold cleats, in a game their team eventually lost, 24-19, in Denver.
Landry (six catches for 51 yards) and Beckham (five catches for 87 yards) were forced to change their colorful footwear at halftime to conform to the league’s dress code.

A league rule prohibits players from wearing hard objects.
The following week, league officials sent him off the field during an away game against the New York Jets because they said his helmet visor was too dark.
In a letter from the league that he later posted to his Instagram, Beckham revealed he was fined more than $14,000 after officials found him to be in “violation of the NFL Uniform and Equipment Rules.”
“Specifically, your pants failed to cover the knee area,” the letter went on to say.
