Odell Beckham turned a bad day good real quick.
It started ugly, with a New York Giants fan in a Beckham jersey failing hard in attempting to re-create the wide receiver's famed 2014 one-handed catch. Beckham himself followed that up with a fumble on the team's first offensive play of the game against the Baltiore Ravens. He was held to 11 yards in the first half, missing time with a hip pointer.
But the star wideout, whose struggles have been at the center of the Giants' disappointing start, responded in a huge way in the third quarter.
And all it took was one play: a 75-yard touchdown catch from Eli Manning.

He wasn't done.
After the Ravens recaptured the lead, the Giants found themselves with a 4th and 1 in their own territory. Needing one yard to stay alive with 1:36 remaining, Beckham did the Giants 65 better, hooking up with Manning again, this time for a 66-yard, game-winning strike.
