The three-time Pro Bowler followed the trip up with arguably his worst performance of the season during his team's first-round loss to the Green Bay Packers in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.
Though the final score (38-13) would indicate a blowout, it was anything but in the first half, when the Giants led for almost 28 minutes until a pair of Aaron Rodgers touchdowns in the final 2:20 before halftime gave Green Bay the momentum.
But had Beckham not failed to secure three relatively easy catches that he instead turned into drops, the Dallas Cowboys might be preparing for New York, who beat them twice in the regular season, instead of the Packers.
On the Giants' opening drive, Beckham dropped a pass from Eli Manning that hit the receiver in the chest on third-and-5.

That killed New York's drive to the Packers' 35-yard line, and the team opted to punt.
On the Giants' very next possession, Beckham dropped a 28-yard heave that Manning laid in the bread basket that would have gone for a touchdown. New York ended up settling for a field goal instead.

With the game still in reach early in the fourth quarter, Beckham dropped a crucial third-and-11 that would have given his team a first down.

(You can see the play again here.)
Beckham caught just four of his 11 targets on the day for 28 yards, the second-lowest yardage output of his career.
He was so frustrated after the defeat, he punched a hole in the wall in the visitors' locker room.

"It's a game of inches, and we were just inches short from making some big plays," Beckham said after the loss.
He also added that he doesn't think his trip to Miami affected his play in the final game of the season: "It doesn't really connect to me. … I was never distracted in my mind."
