Odell Beckham Jr. finally got loose in the fourth quarter, and Eli Manning wasn’t going to miss. He floated a perfect pass over the middle, hitting Beckham between coverage and in open space. There was never any doubt once it was in Beckham’s hands, as he raced the length of the field for the score.
