Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. was the slam dunk choice as NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his big game last Sunday vs. the Ravens.

Beckham caught eight passes for 222 yards and touchdowns that covered 75 and 66 yards, respectively. His second touchdown with 1:24 left in the game provided the winning points.

The 222 receiving yards were the second most in a single game in Giants history. Beckham became the first Giants receiver with two touchdowns of at least 66 yards in the same game since 1966 and now has eight touchdown receptions of 60-plus yards, the second-most by an NFL player through his first three seasons behind Harlon Hill’s 10.

The weekly award is the first of Beckham’s career. The last Giants receiver to be named NFC Offensive Player of the Week was Hakeem Nicks in 2012.

The Giants play the Rams in London on Sunday.
