Even if they don’t make the playoffs, New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is looking to spoil other teams’ postseason chances.
If the ship is going to sick on the New York Giants playoff chances this season, Odell Beckham Jr. wants other teams to go down with them. The fifth-year man out of LSU spoke to Jordan Raanan of ESPN on the Giants plans for the rest of the regular season, regardless if they make the playoffs or not.
“At this point, we can only focus on Washington. There is no ‘what if.’ We’re going out there to win,” Beckham said. “If our season is over, I’m making sure somebody else is coming home with us. That is the goal.
“The goal is to win all these games and see what happens, but if not, you have a tough game to play against us for the last four games.”
At 4-8, the Giants would need to win out the rest of the regular season to even have a chance at the postseason. That may not be enough either, as they could still finish a game behind whoever wins the NFC East.
However, Big Blue has been hot lately. They’ve won three of their last four games. This, of course, comes after they started the season 1-7. What hurts them though is their division record, as the Giants are 0-4 when it comes to NFC East matchups.
The star Giants receiver simply wants to take teams out of playoff contention. If the Giants are going to be out of it, the only thing to do is to make sure the teams they face are going to be out of it as well.
Right now, the Giants can finish strong at 8-8, with wins against the Redskins, Titans, Colts, and Cowboys in the next couple of weeks. They kick off at Washington this Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.
