Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. can only be contained for so long, and the Bengals learned that lesson on Monday night.
Beckham had a few catches for short gains during the first half of the game, but he came alive on New York’s final drive to end the half. He hauled in an 18-yard pass early in the drive, and finished it off in the best way possible.
The Giants were faced with a second-and-five situation from the Bengals’ 10-yard line, so Eli Manning looked to his favorite target, and understandably so. Beckham made it look like he was running a quick slant on the play, which forced cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones to stop running in an attempt to cover him. That was a bad idea, as Beckham then spun by him and managed to get wide open in the end zone, with Jones completely turned around.
Beckham, after juking Jones out of his cleats on the stop-and-go route, did not disappoint on the celebration, either. Check out his great rendition of the dance from Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
You never know what Beckham is going to do next. He really is fun to watch.
