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.

    It’s OKAY Odel – would you like someone to cuddle with?

    This must be a mistake….nobody as immature and distracting to his team as OBJ is can possibly be the player of the week. How can this be??

    Headlines should read: Beckham named NFC Offensive Punk of the Week.

    Kind of surprised this is the first time he has been named player of the week.

    They got the headline right. OFFENSIVE.

    Well deserved. It says “Offensive Player of the Week” nothing to do with the rest.

    He was shut down by Jimmy Smith, who is good but no All Pro, then had a couple of big plays after Smith went down and he was facing scrubs. He spent more time romancing field goal nets than playing football.

    and I’m sure he won’t let this go to his head….

    His net antics are lame, not funny.
    They only funny part was when the net busted him in the jaw.

    Amazing what OBJ can do when Xavier Rhodes isn’t covering him. 23 yards.

    —————–
    Actually, Xavior Rhodes did not cover OBJ man-to-man the majority of the game. It’s a testament to how good the Viking’s secondary is though.

    I wouldn’t want this guy on my team. Dirtiest player in the league (tied with Burfict) and totally selfish. He’s a time bomb.
