After facing a 35-7 deficit, the New York Giants have come back to tie thanks to an Eli Manning to Odell Beckham Jr. touchdown pass.

In one of the crazier NFL games of the season, the New York Giants have furiously rallied from a 35-7 deficit against the 13-0 undefeated Carolina Panthers.
The final strike was Odell Beckham Jr. catching this red-zone touchdown pass from Eli Manning (video above).
It must have been extra sweet for Beckham who’s allowed superstar cornerback Josh Norman to stay inside of his head all afternoon. OBJ was actually flagged on three separate occasions in the game for his immature antics earlier on. One of which was a direct spear to Norman when he wasn’t looking.
Furthermore, Beckham was extremely luck he didn’t cost his team 15-yards after the TD thanks to his Allen Iverson-like “stepping over” Norman. With your season on the line, even coming close to a 15-yard penalty in a 35-35 game could have been a disaster.
In the end, the Giants lost on a game-winning field goal by Graham Gano.
