New York Giants superstar receiver Odell Beckham Jr. likes to throw passes. In fact, he’d like to throw them every week, according to Giants receiver Russell Shepard.

That may or may not happen, but Shepard wouldn’t complain, not after catching a 49-yard touchdown pass from Beckham in a win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

That pass had the most air distance — measured from the points of the throw to the catch — of any touchdown thrown by a non-quarterback this season, according to NFL Next Gen Stats. It was 35th overall. Beckham’s 57-yarder to Saquon Barkley in a Week 5 loss at Carolina ranks 56th overall and third among non-QBs.
