New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. scored two touchdowns in the first half, and he already has one more in the third quarter of the Giants' Week 8 game against the New Orleans Saints. If he scores just one more, he will break an NFL record currently held by one of the greatest wide receivers to ever play the game -- Randy Moss.
The official NFL account tweeted out the record before Beckham's third touchdown -- Randy Moss had 20 touchdowns in his first 20 games. With his third today, Beckham now has 19 touchdowns with over 18 minutes to go in his 20th career game.
Beckham's third touchdown came on a deep pass where he beat double coverage over the top for a 50-yard touchdown catch.
With 27 minutes to go, Beckham already has 82 yards and three touchdowns on six receptions. Stay tuned to see if he can tie or break Moss' incredible record.
