If you were hoping to wake up bright and early, eat breakfast and watch Odell Beckham Jr. implode across the pond, then you might want to just sleep in altogether.
Many opponents have done their best to get under Beckham’s skin, and it’s worked fairly often. But Los Angeles Rams coach Jeff Fisher won’t go there Sunday morning when the Rams battle the Giants in London.
“We’re going to play between the snap and the whistle, and that’s it,” Fisher said, according to ESPN.com’s Alden Gonzalez. “No, we’re not going there. Our guys are going to play hard and play fast, tackle, and have been instructed not to hurt the football team.”
Guess that means there won’t be any extracurricular activities between Beckham and whoever is matched up against him. What’s the fun in that? Fisher doesn’t care about fun, he cares about ending a two-game losing skid. Last week, Beckham’s antics cost his team 15 yards and almost cost the Giants a win. Fisher said his team won’t risk doing anything that will detract from getting the W.
“Those things are hard,” Fisher said. “I think the whole league needs to learn from that. Give yourself a chance to win. That could’ve cost them a victory last week. So, we don’t want to put ourselves in a position to where those kinds of things happen to us.”
