Beckham-Norman rematch should headline Super Bowl
There was plenty of outrage after Beckham and Norman went at each other for 60 minutes in Carolina's 38-35 win over the New York Giants. The NFL responded Monday by suspending Beckham one game for ''multiple violations of safety-related playing rules'' after he drew three personal foul penalties.
So, OBJ got a little out of control. It's not the first time he looked like a WWE superstar on a football field.
Did you catch his perfectly executed suplex on Tampa's Alterraun Verner during an interception return earlier this season? That one would've made Brock Lesnar proud.
Beckham certainly has a WrestleMania appearance in his future. Meanwhile, Norman can talk trash better than some pro wrestlers.
Forget fines and suspensions. Put them in a ring and let them settle their differences.
Here are other overreactions from Week 15:
REALISTIC REACTION: Every team needs fortunate bounces during a winning streak, but good teams create their luck.
OVERREACTION: The NFC East champion will be one-and-done against Seattle or Minnesota.
OVERREACTION: Doug Baldwin has turned into Jerry Rice. Baldwin has 10 TD catches in Seattle's last four games. Only Rice ever did that.
REALISTIC REACTION: Don't carve Baldwin's bust for Canton just yet.
REALISTIC REACTION: Weeden is 5-19 as a starter with no wins since 2012, so he's due.
REALISTIC REACTION: He's 32 and he's not in St. Louis anymore.
REALISTIC REACTION: Even without the star defensive back, the Cardinals might be the team to beat in the NFC.
