ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — New York Giants’ Odell Beckham Jr. is a wizard on the field.

The wide receiver almost made a bonkers catch against the Buffalo Bills reminiscent to the legendary one-handed touchdown pass that earned him “Best Play” at the 2015 ESPY awards and countless replays on ESPN’s “Sports Center” his rookie year.

But while Beckham Jr. caught the ball, he wasn’t able to get a foot in bounds. It’s a move that’s soon to be signature to the second-year receiver (he reportedly makes them at practice all the time).

Beckham Jr. also broke an NFL record during Sunday’s game, rushing 1,612 yards in 16 games, ESPN reported. An 8-yard catch in the first quarter put him past the record of 1,593 yards previously held by Houston’s Bill Groman in 1960-61.

He was the NFL’s Offensive Rookie of the Year in 2014 and made five catches for 58 yards in the Giants’ 24-10 win over the Bills Sunday.
