NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- Is this a sign that Odell Beckham Jr. has turned over a new leaf?

After scoring his first touchdown of the season Sunday night at Green Bay, the Giants wide receiver ran to the sideline and gave a kicking net a hug.

Beckham had five receptions for 56 yards and the touchdown in the game, but the Giants lost, 23-16.
