Odell Beckham Jr. left Sunday’s Giants game against the Ravens in the second quarter questionable to return with a hip pointer injury, with his team trailing, 10-0.
Beckham returned shortly before halftime with his team trailing, 10-7, but the Giants still needed way more out of their offense than they got in the first half.
Eli Manning hit Roger Lewis Jr. for the undrafted rookie’s first career NFL TD to narrow Baltimore’s lead. The score made Manning the eighth quarterback in NFL history with 300 career TD passes, joining brother Peyton Manning, Brett Favre, Tom Brady, Dan Marino, Fran Tarkenton and John Elway.
Beckham was injured fighting for a deep ball that was knocked down incomplete. He skipped a play, came back in for one more snap, then went to the locker room to get checked out.
Beckham had fumbled the ball away on the Giants’ first offensive play of the game and managed just two catches for 11 yards in the first half.
Big Blue’s defense refreshingly stiffened after a poor start and held Joe Flacco to a putrid 12-of-23 passing (52.2%) for 129 yards in the first half. The Giants defense also recorded two first-half sacks (Landon Collins, Johnathan Hankins) after entering the game with a league-worst four total sacks through five games.
