Odell Beckham Jr. acts a little like Terrell Owens
OBJ has some T.O. in him.
Post-game crying. Check. What's next? Driveway sit-ups?
Odell Beckham Jr. got emotional after the New York Giants rallied for a 30-27 win over the 49ers on Sunday night. He was on the verge of tears in an interview afterward, explaining: ''Just happy we won.''
Beckham finished with seven catches for 121 yards but injured his hamstring on a touchdown catch and returned only as a decoy during the final series.
Terrell Owens once broke down while defending Tony Romo after the Cowboys lost a playoff game in January 2008. ''That's my teammate. That's my quarterback,'' Owens said as his bottom lip quivered and his voice wavered while his eyes hid behind black sunglasses.
Don't sweat it, Giants fans. A little emotion doesn't mean Beckham is going to follow Owens' quirky footsteps. Then again, is that a bad thing? Only Jerry Rice had more yards receiving than Owens and only Rice and Randy Moss had more touchdown catches.
Here are other overreactions from Week 5:
REALISTIC REACTION: Eli Manning and the Giants would be 5-0 if they didn't squander late leads. The Cowboys are too talented to lose every game without Romo and Dez Bryant. Maybe Matt Cassel helps them. The Eagles are better than their record.
REALISTIC REACTION: Andy Dalton is off to an MVP start, but the Bengals haven't dominated teams. Plus they have two games with Pittsburgh left and tough road games at Buffalo, Arizona and Denver.
REALISTIC REACTION: The Broncos are winning on defense and Manning is clearly not the quarterback he was. They have a tough schedule in November and two games against San Diego.
REALISTIC REACTION: They're both unbeaten and likely won't be challenged in the NFC South, but neither team has looked unbeatable. The Packers (5-0) and Cardinals (4-1) are still the favorites in the NFC.
OVERREACTION: DeMarco Murray is back to his All-Pro form. Murray ran for 83 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in Philadelphia's 39-17 win over New Orleans.
REALISTIC REACTION: The defending NFL rushing champion is still averaging only 2.7 yards per carry after a decent game against the third-worst run defense in the NFL.
