The New York Giants receiver claims some of his best plays came after he headbutted an air-conditioning unit on Thursday.
ODELL BECKHAM JR says that headbutting an air-conditioning unit helped him ‘get fired up’ during New York Giants’ NFL clash with the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday.
The Giants were trailing by 18 points when cameras picked up Beckham Jr driving his helmet into a huge fan and throwing punches at it on the sideline as he appeared to shout something.
It came two years after the 25-year-old smashed his helmet at a kicking net, which subsequently fell on him, in another incident where his emotions appeared to get the better of him.
The Giants fell to a 34-13 loss to their NFC East rivals and reigning Super Bowl champions Philadelphia, with Beckham finishing with just 44 yards from six grabs as his team dropped to 1-5.
“There was a lot of things going on that had my fired up. It helped me bring out that energy, I don’t know a way around it but to get myself going.”
