Despite dropping three straight, Odell Beckham Jr. doesn’t consider the Baltimore Ravens a “must-win” game for Big Blue.

The New York Giants sit at the bottom of the NFC East entering Week 6. After starting 2-0, they’ve dropped three in a row and, consequently, been dragged through headlines for their performance. Players are not conceding just yet, however. Odell Beckham Jr. doesn’t see this week’s match-up with the Baltimore Ravens as a must-win.

“I don’t think it’s a must-win. I think the only must-win games are the games you play in the division…all of them matter, but those count more.”

– Odell Beckham Jr.

Division games are important, but they matter little if you can’t win the other games. If the Giants can’t improve on their win total from last season, no tiebreaker would be necessary; they won’t be in the playoff picture.


OBJ and company need to get the ball moving sooner than later. The Giants face a Ravens defense Sunday that is perennially tough. It’s a fast turnaround after two straight nationally-televised duds.

This would absolutely appear to be a game the Giants must win, whether or not they’ll say so publicly.
