Odell Beckham Jr. headbutted air-conditioning unit ´to get fired up´

October 12 2018 10:14 AM

Odell Beckham Jr vented his frustration at another inanimate object on Thursday night, but the New York Giants' star wide receiver claimed headbutting an air-conditioning unit helped him in the loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Giants were trailing by 18 points when cameras picked up Beckham Jr driving his helmet into a huge fan and throwing punches at it on the sideline as he appeared to shout something.

It came two years after the 25-year-old smashed his helmet at a kicking net, which subsequently fell on him, in another incident where his emotions appeared to get the better of him.

The Giants fell to a 34-13 loss to their NFC East rivals and reigning Super Bowl champions Philadelphia, with Beckham finishing with just 44 yards from six grabs as his team dropped to 1-5.

"I was just trying to get myself going," Beckham Jr told reporters of the incident.

"I feel like some of those plays right after I was getting myself going was some of my best stuff. I was just trying to get myself fired up, and I did that and it helped me. 

"There was a lot of things going on that had my fired up. It helped me bring out that energy, I don't know a way around it but to get myself going."
