It has been a bad night for the New York Giants. They trail the Philadelphia Eagles 24-6 at the start of the second half in East Rutherford.
The first half wasn’t much fun for Odell Beckham Jr. After a huge game against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, Beckham has caught only two passes for 12 yards in the first half tonight.
Beckham might have been so frustrated he decided to take the last play of the half off. The Giants got the ball back near midfield with two seconds left before halftime, but when they lined up, Beckham wasn’t on the field.
Instead, the cameras caught him walking off the field into the tunnel, shaking his head.

As you might imagine, Beckham is taking a lot of heat for this. Unless he had an injury reason for getting in there ahead of his teammates, this is a bad look.
Beckham has already spoken out to the media this season and has reportedly been fined for it. We’ll have to see if he’ll face discipline for this, if he just left early on his own accord.
At the very least, it is going to make for interesting post-game fodder from the New York media.
