Though he was questionable coming in, New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. got the ‘Monday Night Football’ party started.

Would he, or wouldn’t he? That was the question.

Heading into the Monday Night Football clash between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles for first place in the NFC East, the hot-button issue surrounded Odell Beckham Jr.’s health.

He came in questionable, thanks to a hamstring tweak during last week’s come from behind victory against the San Francisco 49ers. No matter though, as Beckham Jr. did start.

Better yet, he got the game started on the right foot for Big Blue with this 13-yard TD reception from Eli Manning on the opening drive of the game (video above).


Beckham has collected 61 yards in total plus that TD on seven grabs as the two teams rest at halftime with Philly holding a 17-7 lead in this, a very sloppy game.
