Giants 27, Ravens 23

Beckham keeps his cool, sort of

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Odell Beckham Jr. reined in some of the emotions, the exaggerated behavior, the penalties and on-field feuds. Then he did what he does best — make big plays.

A banged-up Beckham turned a short fourth-and-1 pass into a winning 66-yard play with 1:24 to play to spark the Giants, who snapped a three-game losing streak.

Beckham had a career-best 222 yards and two touchdowns despite leaving in the first half with a hip pointer. The Giants earned their 700th win (regular season and playoffs combined) ever. Only the Bears (759) and Packers (745) have won that many.

"I am going to go out there and play the same way every time," Beckham said of his many problems on the field this season.

After catching a 75-yard scoring pass in the third quarter, Beckham imitated a triple jumper — playing off a line in a commercial in which he appears. After his winning catch, he took off his helmet and drew a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
