Vikings Ball Boy Shows Up Odell Beckham With One-Handed Catch

Odell Beckham had a career-worst game against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night.

Coming off a sideline tantrum in Week 3, not only did the New York Giants star wideout catch for a career-low 23 yards on three catches, he also killed the momentum on a drive with an admittedly borderline taunting penalty after he took an uncalled late hit from Vikings corner Xavier Rhodes.

He also came up with drop after drop after drop, and contributed to an interception when he didn't stick to his route during the 24-10 loss. Beckham has zero touchdowns through four games.

To make matters worse, while Beckham was having the crappiest game of his life, a Vikings ball boy showed him up by taking his signature move—making a smooth one-handed grab as Vikings QB Sam Bradford threw the ball away.

The difference between the ball boy and Beckham: When the pigskin protector makes a nice catch, he acts like he's been there before.

Let's see it again, in slo-mo.

This is the second consecutive week the Minnesota defense has absolutely shut down an eilte pass-catcher. Last week, the undefeated Vikings held the Carolina Panthers' Kelvin Benjamin, at that point the league leader in receiving yards, to zero catches. Next week, they'll take on DeAndre Hopkins and the Houston Texans.
