In what has to go down as one of the biggest shocks of the 2018 NFL season to date, right up there with the Cowboys victory over the Saints on Thursday night, the New York Giants basically pulled a miracle tonight.

Facing the best team in the NFC North that just happened to be on a five-game winning streak, the Giants threw the form book straight out of the window as they took on the Chicago Bears in the Meadowlands. 

Heading into the game on a 3-8 record with fans just looking for the season to end so they can get to the Draft, the Giants pulled out an excellent overtime win over Matt Nagy and the Bears.

And the Giants had to go deep into the playbook for one of their touchdowns during the game, as it ended with Odell Beckham Jr throwing a touchdown pass. 

Beckham received a pitch from Eli Manning on halfway and reversed course back into the pocket before launching a beaut of a throw straight into the waiting arms of fellow wide receiver Russell Shepard at Chicago's five-yard line - who strolled into the endzone.

That is an absolute beauty. Football doesn't get much more exciting than when a team tries the unexpected and it somehow comes off. 

And it begs the question: Is Odell Beckham Jr actually a better passer of the football than Eli Manning is right now? 

Let's just take a look at the stats. On the season, Eli is completing 67.9% of his passes for an 84.0 QBR average.  Compare that to Odell who has gone 2-for-2 (100%) for 105 yards, 2 touchdowns and a 158.3 QB rating.

Some fans wondered the same.

Well, that basically makes it official. 

Odell Beckham is the best quarterback in New York. Yes, that includes you Sam Darnold.
