Odell Beckham has been a fan favorite in New York since the Giants drafted him back in 2014, but at the moment, many of the team’s supporters are quite upset with him. You’ll see why on the play below.
Chicago, trailing 27-20 with just over a minute to play, had to try an onside kick to try to get the ball back one last time. It was well-executed, to say the least.
Beckham, on the hands team for obvious reasons, seemingly had a shot to recover the ball and end the game. But he shied away from the ball at the last second, allowing the Bears to recover.
What happened next? Chicago drove all the way down the field and tied the game with no time remaining in regulation.

The Giants and the Bears are now in overtime. Chicago scored 10 points in the final two minutes of the contest.
Beckham, predictably, is getting crushed. Here’s a taste of what’s out there:
@MikeFrancesa is totally right about Odell …. he's a complete fraud
Avoided contact on on sides kick and now Giants blow it

If Odell cries one time about Eli or “the game plan” he’s the dumbest human alive bc he had the opportunity to end the game and grab that onside kick but he was too soft to try 🤷🏻♂️

All because Odell didn’t want to recover the onside kick.
