In today’s Cheat Sheet, Monday Night Football lives up to its billing for once, Odell Beckham Jr. dances his way into the record books and the NBA gives us some fun despite nights off for Cleveland and Golden State.

Plus, it turns out not every touchdown celebration gets you flagged.

Odell Beckham Jr. deserves to dance

In a season full of disappointing nationally televised NFL games, Monday Giants-Bengals contest at least provided reason to watch. New York won 21-20 in a game whose outcome was in question until the final minute. Though Eli Manning threw for 240 yards and three touchdowns (also two interceptions) and the Giants’ defense held Cincinnati scoreless for the last quarter and a half of play, the story of the night was Odell Beckham Jr.

Let’s count the reasons Beckham Jr. was Monday’s star.

1. He swapped signed jerseys with Randy Moss. They even wrote sweet notes to each other on the numbers.
