Another week, another award for New York Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who has now been named Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week for his Week 15 performance against the Washington Redskins.
Against the Redskins, Beckham Jr. hauled in a career-high 12 receptions for 143 yards and another career-high with three touchdowns. It was his fifth game this season eclipsing 100 yards receiving and the seventh consecutive game with 90 yards are more.
Despite Pepsi giving him the hat tip, the NFL went a different direction with their NFC Offensive Player of the Week award, instead giving that honor to Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, who had eight receptions for 114 yards and three touchdowns against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Of course, Beckham Jr. was quick to congratulate Bryant.
Congrats to @DezBryant on winning NFC Offensive Player of the Week. Keep eatin big bruh— Odell Beckham Jr (@OBJ_3) December 17, 2014
