NFC East Notes: Cowboys, Giants, Redskins




Giants WR Odell Beckham told reporters after Sunday’s game that it “shouldn’t be this hard” to get things going offensively.

“I’m doing everything I can,” Beckham said, via “I put my all into this. I have sacrificed everything, especially coming into this year. I have sacrificed and made personal changes, doing all I can to be the best teammate and bring everything that I can every Sunday. It’s disappointing when you have to leave like this. You work way too hard five or six days a week for 60 minutes of football. I hate to get out there and waste those 60 minutes.”
