"The connection is just not there."

Beckham caught just four passes for 28 yards despite being targeted 11 times. The flamboyant receiver accounted for three drops, but he wasn't the only who had trouble hauling in passes from Eli Manning, who finished 23 of 44 for 299 yards with a touchdown and two late turnovers.

"There were a lot of opportunities for us to have the game go the other way," Beckham said."It sucks. There's no way to put it. It sucks. It's a horrible feeling."

The Giants receivers, collectively, had 16 drops during the regular season. Eight of those regular-season drops were by Beckham.
