Odell Beckham Jr. certainly knows how to create a spark.
The Giants wide receiver went into the locker room at halftime with the team trailing the Bears 14-10 on Sunday and felt like he needed to say something.
So Beckham delivered an empassioned speech.
"I addressed the team at halftime, and I told 'em, it's just something that I had to get off my chest," Beckham told reporters. "I love these boys. Every time I put on a helmet whether it's practice or a game, I'm gonna give it my all, and I feel like I owed them to give them more, to give them all of me and whatever that can entail."
The Giants offense sputtered in the first half, managing just 10 points and they were lucky to get that much, thanks to a Saquon Barkley 22-yard run with six seconds remaining on the clock to set up a 57-yard field goal from Aldrick Rosas.
Beckham had just two catches on eight targets in the half.
"It just was something in my heart," he said. "In a way I kinda feel like I let 'em down. When I came into the building today, it was just a different feeling and I didn't know how to shake it. … So as I'm speaking to 'em, it's just flying out. It's whatever thoughts are coming out. I feel like they took the message well, and we're in this locker room with a good feeling."
On the fourth play of the third quarter, Beckham made sure the Giants capitalized on that good feeling.
"So we drew a play up, I told Bennie (Fowler) I don't care what happens, I'm going to throw it to you," Beckham said.
Eli Manning tossed the ball to Beckham on a reverse and the wide receiver looked to throw to Fowler but saw him double covered by two Bears defenders.
Beckham stopped in his tracks and appeared ready to make something happen with his legs, when he noticed Russell Shepard wide open down field.
"They double covered [Fowler] and this grown man from LSU (Shepard) who I've played with for a long time, I saw him down the middle of the field and I was like this can't be real and I just launched it to him," he said. "It's all good, he wasn't supposed to do that, but he's just playing football and he came up with a huge play for us. Very, very, very big play."
It was Beckham's second touchdown of the season -- he threw one in Week 5 against the Panthers -- and it gave the Giants their first lead of the game en route to a 30-27 win over the Bears.
