During the Giants’ opening drive, quarterback Eli Manning found to Beckham with a pass that perfectly fell into the wide receiver’s hands. Beckham was able to get around the Patriots’ secondary and sprinted to the end zone for New York’s first touchdown of the game.
The second-year player celebrated with an emphatic spike, similar to New England tight end Rob Gronkowski’s signature celebration.
The touchdown was Beckham’s eighth of the season and he surpassed his previous career-long reception of 80 yards.
