The Giants have been bad this year. Odell Beckham Jr., though, is generally very good. It’s tough for a star receiver to make plays when the quarterback situation is an aging Eli Manning. He can’t throw the ball to himself.
As we saw today, though, Odell can throw the ball to other players. Here’s a 49-yard touchdown pass from Beckham to Sterling Shepard:
That’s actually a nice bit of buying time for Beckham, too, allowing Shepard to get all the way down the field. The Bears, meanwhile, were completely unprepared for it.
This game has included a few fun plays, including the first half touchdown from Bears tackle Akiem Hicks. It’s also featured a massive Giants comeback, including this most recent touchdown from…Odell Beckham Jr., who is now both throwing and receiving touchdowns.
