Odell Beckham Jr. celebrated his first touchdown on Sunday by pretending to pee like a dog.
Some people interpreted Beckham’s celebration as a response to comments made by Donald Trump last Friday where he called protesting players “sons of bitches.” That theory was fueled when, after the game, Beckham’s reasoning for the act was: “I’m a dog, so I acted like a dog.”
That theory was then confirmed on Monday when Beckham engaged with a Twitter user saying his celebration was a response to Trump.

Shortly after Beckham’s first touchdown catch, he came right back and scored again. This time offered a more serious approach by raising his fist up in the air.

The Giants looked like a team that had battled to save its season, only to miss out to a 61-yard field goal. Matthew Stafford looked to have launched yet another dramatic fourth-quarter comeback and pushed his Lions to 3-0, only to be stopped inches short of the end zone. The Patriots saved a week of think pieces with a magical drive to beat the Texans, who might actually have beaten themselves.
Everyone has a different definition of exciting, but one useful measure is what ESPN’s Brian Burke refers to as the Excitement Index, which is simply the sum of all the changes in a win expectancy chart throughout the game. This is the exact sort of model that rewards the crazy late-game changes that moved the needle by as much as 78 percent in Week 3. The average 1 p.m. ET game since 2005, when RedZone made its way into our hearts, had a typical Excitement Index of 3.7 points. The most exciting contest was the 37-34 overtime game played between the Bears and Lions in 2015, which featured several lead changes in the fourth quarter and an eventual game-winning field goal in overtime.
