In Odell Beckham Jr.’s first nine games as a full-time starter last season he averaged nine receptions, 133 yards and one touchdown a game, numbers that most wide receivers dream of averaging over the course of a season.

That and one hella impressive catch landed him the cover of Madden NFL 2016, over Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski. The NFL Network’s Kimberly Jones caught up with the sophomore wideout and he explained how he’s eyeing more than impressive stats and a cover of a video game for 2015.

"“I think the biggest goal for me is I felt like I’ve always been great and I’ve always been on good teams but I’ve just never been a champion. I went 13-0 freshman year (at LSU) and lost the national championship, 21-0. Things like that. Had chances to win it the next year and the year after that, and just have never really gotten to that position, so I know for a fact that if we could make it there, I just couldn’t see another one slip away. I don’t know if I could live with that.” – Odell Beckham Jr."

The Giants will have some tough competition in the NFC East from the Cowboys and the Eagles but with Beckham and a healthy Victor Cruz the Giants offense should at the very least be entertaining to watch in 2015, if Eli can get them the ball, naturally.
