After blasting his team earlier this week, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. could be on the receiving end of criticism now after his awful mistake led to a Carolina Panthers touchdown.
At the start of the second quarter with Carolina already leading 7-3, OBJ ran towards the ball on the punt to block the gunner and the ball deflected off his foot and started bouncing around. After being bobbled and kicked around, Carolina recovered it in the end zone for a score.
Immediately after the horrendous mistake, Twitter ripped OBJ for his awful decision that cost New York dearly.
That was such a stupid play by Odell. Giants look in such disarray in person. Offense has zero rhythm whatsoever.
