Odell Beckham Jr. scores touchdown, does gross dog celebration, scores again, raises fist

It’s been a frustrating start to the season for the New York Giants and star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

But at least the mercurial superstar got back in the swing of things: Two incredible touchdowns sandwiched around a very odd and gross touchdown celebration.

Would you expect any less?


Yes, that’s the Giants star celebrating like a dog urinating on the Lincoln Financial Field turf. He was flagged for the display and will in all likelihood be getting a sizable fine from the NFL this week.

Then the Giants got a turnover and Beckham Jr. caught another score, this one even better than the last: a juggling, one-handed, toe-tapping touchdown to knot things at 14.

This time his celebration was again notable but not nearly as strange: He simply raised his right fist into the air, another statement in a week that’s been full of them.

The Giants ended up losing the game on a last-second field goal to fall to 0-3 and Beckham was asked about both displays after the loss.

“I’m in the end zone, I’m a dog, so I acted like a dog,” Beckham told reporters.

As for the raised first, he wouldn’t explicitly say it was a protest but implied as much.

“Did it look like it?” he asked. “Then it might have meant something.”
