New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham had a terrible start to the season prior to his team's week five game against the Green Bay Packers. Before this week got under way, he only had 303 receiving yards and zero touchdowns after four games.

These poor performances went hand in hand with his attention on and off the field, resulting in him recently stating that he was no longer enjoying the game. Yet, things improved this week against the Packers, as he managed to score his first touchdown of the season.

How did he celebrate? By making up with an old foe, the kicking net.

Beckham scored his first touchdown of the season with just over three minutes left in the fourth quarter as the Giants tried to get back in the game, but it wasn't enough as they would go on to lose 23-16. 

The 23-year-old had some very nice footwork at the back of the endzone to keep both of his feet inbounds while making the catch for the score, and after the booth had confirmed the touchdown, the wide receiver kissed, hugged, and made up with the kicking net he had lashed out at two weeks before.

If you remember, the two-time Pro Bowler threw his helmet at the kicking net during the Giants' loss to the Washington Redskins in week three, causing the net to bounce back and hit him back on the head, resulting in one of the first NFL memes of the 2016 season.

It's great to see that the two are back on good terms and have made up after the ugly scenes from a couple of weeks ago. Share the love!
