Kicking Net Hits Odell Beckham Jr. In The Face

Eli Manning turns a reporter's question into a few chuckles

Under the rule that, coincidentally, derives from incidents last season involving Richburg's Giants teammate Odell Beckham Jr., a player can be thrown out of a game for committing two such fouls.

Odell Beckham Jr. of the New York Giants calls out a play in the second half against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. "I had three personal fouls past year, so they said if you come out and get one personal foul and another one for the same thing (you get ejected)".

"We have to take care of The Duke better and come up with it on the defensive side of the ball", McAdoo said. "... There was no 'You get a warning.' ... Eli's got to body him up a little bit more with the throw, with the type of coverage that it was there". "It's not really football anymore as much as it all the other things that play into it".

The feeling of anger and frustration that the New York Giants felt after losing their first game under coach Ben McAdoo has been replaced with the realization that it's one game. 'A mockery of the game.' I don't know if that was from up top or if that's him directly saying it to me. "It's our job to help him with that process and maturing".

After playing well in the first two games, the defense struggled against Kirk Cousins and the Redskins for a number of reasons. McAdoo and quarterback Eli Manning each spent part of this past Sunday tending to Beckham on the sideline.

This first face-to-face matchup as division rivals saw Beckham make seven receptions for 121 yards.

Both players toed the line Sunday, even sharing a post-game moment Beckham portrayed as one of mutual respect. One of the characteristics that makes him so dynamic is his ability to perform on the edge. They had to settle for five goals from Dustin Hopkins, the last a 37-yarder with 1:51 to play.

Officers said the man refused "multiple" orders to take his hand from his pocket, and then was shot after pulling out the object. Davis said a second officer arrived and was prepared to use a Taser to stun Olango, who was pacing while officers spoke to him.

Leading 17-7 going into halftime, a rapid third quarter put the game out of reach.

"I'm proud of Josh and the way he's played", Redskins coach Jay Gruden said.

"I was trying to figure out what was going on, why he was getting frustrated", Manning said.

Beckham appeared to be in tears as Manning tried to coax him out of it. The Giants now have to spend their energy on controlling Odell when they need to be focused on getting better and actually making the playoffs.

Beckham subsequently was suspended for a game, and when Norman signed as a free agent with Washington, it meant two meetings per season for the foes.

"We have to understand that we have to protect the football, " Manning said. I've said that from day one. The only negative was Dunbar fumbled an early punt to give NY the possession on its first touchdown.

The Seattle Seahawks had not allowed a 100-yard rusher in their previous 24 games, a streak that dated to Week 11 of the 2014 season when Kansas City's Jamaal Charles topped the 100-yard mark.
