In November, New York Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham Jr.made a one-handed catch against the Dallas Cowboys that has been described by pundits as one of the greatest catches of all time. 

On Friday, Beckham told SI Now that ever since he made the catch, "Things will just never be the same."

"I'm a very humble person, I've been humbled a lot," he said. "So I walk into places and I just think of myself as normal and as soon as I walk in somewhere it's 'You wanna take a picture?' 'Can I get an autograph?' or something like that. It's just something that I'm not exactly used to and am trying to get used to."
