Odell Beckham Jr. gave Michael Jackson a shout out last month, when he pulled out some “Thriller” dance moves in the end zone against the Bengals. The New York Giants star wideout had MJ on the brain Sunday night, too.
Beckham caught a slant pass from Eli Manning and outran the Dallas Cowboys secondary for a 61-yard touchdown with 1:07 left in the third quarter. Then Beckham gave another ode to the King of Pop, mimicking Jackson’s famous leg kick and then adding a moonwalk in the end zone.
Beckham now has nine touchdown catches for 60 or more yards, the most in the NFL since he entered the league in 2014. The touchdown gave the Giants a 10-7 lead and provided a jolt to the Meadowlands crowd.
