Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. isn't a fan of the Patriots, but not for the reason you may think (that's cheating, if you couldn't figure it out.)
Beckham says the Patriots have beat up on every team he's liked throughout the years, but respects them and what they've accomplished in the Belichick-Brady era.
“I’ve loved-hated the Patriots for a long time,” Beckham Jr. told Newsday.com Thursday. “I respect everything that they’ve done and everything they do year in and year out as far as being one of the top teams in the league. They get the job done, they win championships. But on the other end, they’ve beaten all the teams that I like.”
Beckham isn't really saying anything bad here. In fact, he went on to give New England a pretty nice compliment.
“You hate them because nobody was really beating them, and you love them because no matter what they go through, even what they’ve gone through this year [with DeflateGate] to see how they’ve come out, they play football,” Beckham said. “There’s something about it I admire. But it’s still one of my least-favorite favorite teams of all time.”
Beckham will have a chance to hand the Patriots their first loss of the season when the Giants host New England at MetLife Stadium on Sunday.
