UPDATE: Monday Dec. 21 4:20 P.M.
A day after his dangerous on-field antics, Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has been suspended for one game. He will miss Sunday’s match-up in Minnesota, but has the right to appeal the suspension.
During Sunday afternoon’s NFL game in which the New York Giants fell to the Carolina Panthers, tensions ran high.
As Cam Newton’s squad fought to stay undefeated and Eli Manning’s gang fought for playoff contention, things got testy between Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and Panthers cornerback Josh Norman. After Beckham beat Norman deep on the Giants’ first drive, but failed to get his hands on the ball, the two engaged in several post-play arguments throughout the game.
Beckham even received a penalty for unnecessary roughness when he threw an unwarranted forearm at Norman, and later head-butted him. After the Panthers won 38-35, Norman spoke to CBS’ Steve Overmyer about his feelings towards Odell.
He expanded on these thoughts during the post-game interview, which can be viewed above, and thinks Beckham should have been ejected.
Norman also retweeted a few reactions, including Odell catching an “L,” and a bunch of feminine emojis in reaction to a Skip Bayless tweet.
While rumors swirl about what kind of suspension, if any, Beckham would get, he’s yet to respond to the controversy.
