In the aftermath of the Giants’ 24-10 victory over the Bills on Sunday, members of the Bills are saying that Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is a “prima donna” who was throwing punches at them after plays were over.
“That’s what he does. He’ll get away with it,” Buffalo linebacker Preston Brown told the Buffalo News. “He’s the ‘golden boy’ of the league. He’s on the cover of Madden. Sometimes, you get away with stuff like that.”
“It’s kind of like you’re playing your little brother and he gets mad at you for being too physical with him – throwing a tantrum. I’m like, ‘Man, we’re playing football. It’s a physical game,’ ” cornerback Stephon Gilmore added.
Videos from the game have centered on a play late in the fourth quarter, during which Beckham takes a big hit on an interception return, gets up, and appears to throw a quick punch. Beckham had gotten into a tussle with a separate Bills defender just two plays earlier, after it appeared Eli Manning had been hit late after a whistle.

In response to the Bills’ players’ words, Beckham had little to say:
Odell Beckham: “I’m not worried about the Bills and the past. We beat them.”
