Odell Beckham Jr. should probably stick to using his hands.

The New York Giants wide receiver was flagged five yards for kicking the ball during overtime against the New York Jets on Sunday.

The penalty moved the Giants to fourth-and-six instead of only needing one yard to convert a first down. Beckham redeemed himself on the very next play, catching a pass for a first down.

Neither Beckham’s big catch in overtime or his big plays from earlier in the game were enough—the Jets won 23–20.
