The battle between Odell Beckham Jr. and Josh Norman had been a quiet one through three quarters of Sunday’s game between Washington and the New York Giants, but it erupted in the fourth. A three-play sequence got both players riled up, and the crowd roaring.
First, Norman was called for targeting, leaving Beckham wide open to lay an illegal hit on wide receiver Sterling Shepard.
On the next play, Beckham made a gorgeous one-handed grab right in front of Norman.
Then Beckham made Norman look REALLY foolish, spinning away from the corner and leaving him on the turf.
It was all ultimately for naught. Eli Manning threw an interception at the goal line to turn the ball over to Washington. Beckham was upset after the drive, pacing up and down the sideline and struggling to contain his emotions. He took out some of his frustration on a poor kicking apparatus.
The fireworks are underway in East Rutherford.
