Honorable Mention: Odell Beckham Jr.
For the second time this season, Odell Beckham Jr. recorded an unforgettable punt return for a touchdown that New York Giants fans will have to forget. True as that may be, the play provided the Giants with an invaluable spark against Detroit.

That’s an extraordinary achievement by an extraordinary player.
Beckham Jr. finished the win over the Lions with six receptions for 64 yards and an awe-inspiring touchdown. He also ran the ball one time for nine yards in yet another display of his uncanny versatility as a playmaker.
For those who missed it, Beckham Jr. did the following to put the Lions away:
On a day during which Eli Manning spread the wealth, Beckham Jr. proved that he doesn’t need superstar targets to make superstar plays. He came up with huge plays when they mattered most and found the end zone in a clutch situation.
Beckham Jr. may not be the Offensive Player of the Game, but he’s quite deserving of an honorable mention.
