The New York Giants star scored two touchdowns last night in Miami
Odell Beckham Jr is the NFL's human highlight reel.
The New York Giants star scored two touchdowns last night as his side defeated the Miami Dolphins 31-24 to move to 6-7 for the season. They are now in with a realistic chance of winning the NFC East.
Beckham's first touchdown last night came after a challenge, when he was originally judged to have been out of play. ESPN commentator Mike Tirico said of the officials after the catch; "They said Mr. Magic didn't keep his feet in before his body came down". The fact that Beckham is given the "Mr. Magic" title shows how highly he is revered in America.
This is just crazy: OBJ puts on his ballerina slippers and somehow stays in bounds for an INSANE tip-toe TD grab https://t.co/oUD8ZVleRg— NFL (@NFL) December 15, 2015
Beckham's second six-pointer was a little more straight forward as he ran free to catch an Eli Manning pass. The wide receiver strolled into the end zone.
It is the sixth game in a row where the 23-year-old has caught the ball for at least 100 yards as he continues his impressive form.

Interestingly for Beckham and others in his position, ESPN ran a segment in their broadcast last night that shows gloves may be giving wide receivers an unfair advantage when catching the ball. You can view that here.
