It's Odell Beckham Jr's birthday weekend this week and he celebrated it in style with one hell of a performance earlier today.

The New York Giants wideout was the star of the show as the G-Men took on their NFC East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles at MetLife Stadium.

Beckham didn't get the ball in his hands as much as he would've like, but at least he made it count by racking up two touchdown catches on just four receptions. He also got punched in the head by a teammate. 

As Beckham hauled in his first touchdown of the day from quarterback Eli Manning, he celebrated with a dance before his teammates came over to congratulate him. One of those teammates was just a bit too overzealous, smacking OBJ round the head.

Well, that's just uncalled for. Thankfully, Beckham keeps on celebrating after falling to the floor in completely embarrassing fashion. 

Beckham Jr.’s two touchdown performance also cemented his place in the record books.

The former LSU star is now the first player since 1967 with 30 receiving touchdowns in his first 35 games. He also has more receiving yards through his first 35 games than anyone since 1965 has had in their first 40 games.
