Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. doubles down on New York running the table
The New York Giants have dug themselves in a deep hole this season having dropped seven out of their first nine games played that has seemingly put their playoff chances out the window.
However, star wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. has become more poignant on the belief that his team can win the rest of their games in the second half of the season. Following a 27-23 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 10, Beckham Jr. has once again voiced that he believes the Giants can accomplish that feat by winning the last seven contests of the regular season, according to Bob Glauber of Newsday.
“I don’t know what would make me not believe it,” he said of the chance at winning the next seven games. “That’s just the goal. Same thing I say before the season, the goal is to win the Super Bowl. It’s always going to be to win the Super Bowl. If you’re just here to have fun or whatever else, I don’t think you should be here.”
The Giants have taken a step in the right direction so far since that original proclamation by Beckham Jr. by edging past the 49ers on Monday night. The 25-year-old played a huge part in helping his team in that contest hauling in four catches for 73 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns.
New York has a tough road ahead against some formidable opponents that includes three more NFC East division games once against each other team in the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, and Washington Redskins. Meanwhile, they also face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears, and the Tennessee Titans. This should prove to be a daunting task to sweep through the rest of the remaining schedule to even have a chance to compete for the playoffs should they get to that point.
This will start with a home game against the Buccaneers on Sunday afternoon facing a team that has lost six out of their last seven contests.
