EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Odell Beckham Jr. is tearing up opposing defenses and getting them miffed, too.

When the New York Giants rookie receiver scores, there is a little dance, a ball spin and a glance that got one official to throw a flag on Sunday for taunting.

It's not something that Tom Coughlin likes, and he has spoken to Beckham about it. The young man had a thought for his coach, too, telling the 68-year-old to keep after him about his actions.

It's a good relationship and one that may get to continue with the Giants (6-9) closing the season riding a three-game winning streak and Coughlin having a chance to keep his job.

Whatever happens, Coughlin doesn't want Beckham to stop playing with an edge.
