Despite getting off to a rough start of the season, Odell Beckham Jr. got back in the swing of things with two incredible touchdown catches in the fourth quarter of the Giants 27-24 loss to the Eagles.
After an impressive toe-tap catch in the back of the end zone, Beckham drew a flag for pretending like he was peeing on the Lincoln Financial Field surface.
“I don’t know. I’m in the end zone. I’m a dog. So I acted like a dog,” Beckham said, via Ralph Vacchiano of SNY.
Beckham then made an unbelievable one-handed catch 106 seconds later in the corner of the end zone. He then stood near the goal line, faced the stands and raised his right fist.

After the game, Beckham was asked if the gesture was related to protests by players around the league.
“Did it look like it? Then it might have meant something,” he said.
Beckham finished Sunday’s game with 9 receptions for 79 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Eagles won when Jake Elliott kicked a 61-yard field goal as time expired. Beckham missed the Giants opener because of an ankle injury. He returned last Monday night against the Detroit Lions but was limited.
