news / 06.21.2017 Odell Beckham Jr. Dominates NFC East
Odell Beckham Jr. has shattered more than 40 all-time NFL records in his first three seasons with the New York Giants and some of his best work has come against his NFC East division rivals.
Beckham has matched up against each divisional opponent a total of six times since entering the NFL in 2014. According to Giants Daily, if you prorate Beckham's stats in each set of six games, against each team respectively, you get some lofty 16-game averages. Without further ado, these are the results when you take Beckham's average stats against each team and prorate them to a full 16-game game season:
Vs. the Redskins:
128 receptions, 1,693 yards receiving, 16 touchdowns
Vs. the Cowboys:
82 receptions, 1,136 yards receiving, 13 touchdowns
Vs. the Eagles:
109 receptions, 1,397 yards receiving, 11 touchdowns
Josh Norman, Mo Claiborne, Byron Maxwell, Brandon Carr, and Deangelo Hall are just a few name brand cornerbacks who have attempted to stop Beckham in divisional matchups, but they have all failed to various degrees.
Of course, racking up at least 70 receptions, 1,000 yards receiving, and 10 touchdowns have become commonplace for Beckham. In 2016, he became the first receiver in NFL history to start his career with three consecutive seasons of at least 70/1,000/10 in those three stat categories, respectively.
Beckham's dominance extends to all 31 teams, but it's clear that he has the ability to take his game to another level when squaring off against his hated NFC East rivals.
