Cincinnati Bengals DB Adam “Pacman” Jones is considered a fairly good cornerback. But Odell Beckham Jr. turned his world upside down.
With just over a minute remaining in the first half and the New York Giants down a field goal, Beckham executed one of the nastiest routes of the 2016 NFL season. Positioned slightly behind the Bengals’ 10-yard line and lined up tight on the left of the formation, Beckham sped upfield in a straight line before stopping at the 3 and turning back to face QB Eli Manning—as if he were running a simple curl route.

As quickly as he turned back to the line of scrimmage, Beckham then flipped his body around and continued into the end zone, leaving Jones grasping at air and completely turned around as if he’d been tossed into a washing machine with the setting set to “spin.” Beckham, totally wide open in the back of the end zone, hauled in the pass from Manning for 6, and promptly broke into Michael Jackson’s iconic “Thriller” dance.
Damn, Odell. Don’t do ’em like that!
