Peppers interception set up a score for the Browns and then in the fourth quarter when Denver was trying to mount a drive, the former Heisman finalist for MI football came up with a sack to finish off a big win.
Football fans on both sides of the trade, as well as players around the league, had some strong reactions on social media.
The Giants signed Beckham to a five-year, $95 million contract extension in August with $65 million in guarantees.
Beckham has missed 16 games over the last two seasons, but he was still very productive in 12 games last season (77 catches for 1,052 yards, six touchdowns).
If things go terribly wrong, the Browns, barring a restructure, can get out of the deal without a salary-cap hit after the 2020 season.
Manning set a career-high for completion percentage (66 percent) a year ago, but the eye test has shown a cooked quarterback for about three seasons.
Landing Beckham is his signature move, a signal that he believes the Browns are on the verge of a Super Bowl run. The Giants could be heading into 2019 with Barkley, Beckham Jr. and Darnold. Even if they do decide to cut Manning, the damage of holding onto him has already been done.
The Browns have options in free agency and don't have a pick until the second round of the draft.
