Beckham, who recorded his first 100-reception season in 2016,
never found his rhythm with quarterback Eli Manning and caught
just four of 11 targets for 28 yards.
"I'm not sure how many targets Odell had," Giants coach Ben
McAdoo told reporters. "I thought we had the opportunity to get
him the ball a few times. Ball skills weren't great today.
"I thought Eli was fairly sharp throwing it. In the elements,
you've got to handle the ball better."
Beckham, a Pro Bowl selection for the past three seasons, was
widely panned for his decision to spend Monday's day off
partying in South Beach with fellow receivers Sterling Shepard,
Victor Cruz and Roger Lewis.
For Beckham, there was no link whatsoever between Monday's
leisure time and Sunday's playoff defeat in Green Bay.
"There was nothing that could connect seven days ago to today
and how we came out and played and executed," he said.
"There's just nothing in the world, that's not realistic. I
think it did a great job at creating distractions for us.
"It's unfortunate. That's just the way this world is. There's
just no way you could connect something that happened seven days
ago to this game today."
