Odell Beckham Jr. is known for making some of the most ridiculous catches look easy, but Sunday he took an easy catch and made himself look ridiculous.
The New York Giants wide receiver had a tough matchup against the Carolina Panthers’ Josh Norman, but Beckham beat the shutdown cornerback early in the first quarter, giving himself 2 1/2 yards of separation. But when quarterback Eli Manning lobbed a pass right into his hands, Beckham did something very un-Beckham-like and dropped it.
However, it became very clear shortly after that Norman was getting into Beckham’s head. The two made some hard contact before Beckham threw Norman to the ground and started a tussle.
Somehow, not a single flag was thrown during that altercation.
