Report: Odell Beckham Jr. Banged Head Against Wall After Thursday Night Loss To Eagles

Odell Beckham Jr. was frustrated with the New York Giants' loss to the rival Philadelphia Eagles last night, and literally banged his head against a wall as a result.

The Giants had a chance to clinch a playoff berth with a win against the Eagles on Thursday, but fell short 24-19. Odell Beckham Jr. did his part, catching 11 passes for 150 yards on 20 targets, but the G-Men couldn't pull it out, and according to the New York Post, the emotional star wide receiver was beside himself after the game.

He stood in the tunnel adjacent to the visitors’ locker room and fumed, emitting guttural sounds of anguish in a display of utter frustration.

Then he stood facing a steel wall and banged his head into it, once, twice, three times, before team officials, including co-owner John Mara, consoled him, with Mara patting him on the back as Beckham slowly made his way into the locker room.

The loss clinches the NFC East for the Dallas Cowboys, but all is not lost for the Giants, who are still in fantastic shape to clinch a wild card spot. A Buccaneers, Falcons, Lions, or Packers loss or tie this weekend will lock it up for New York, as will a Giants Week 17 win over Washington.
