Odell Beckham Jr., of course, had to on Wednesday address the "prima donna" comments made by the Buffalo Bills and the fact that he has been fined by the NFL for some of his actions during Sunday's game.

"It's whatever, man. It's football, we're playing football. I'm not worried about the Bills, they're in the past, we beat them last week," Beckham said.

Addressing the notion that he is a prima donna, Beckham said it didn't bother him and that "I sleep like a baby at night."

Beckham said the comments from the Bills were "kind of confusing."

"For a Bills team who I think is one of the best defenses in the league, could be one of the best teams in the league, just to hear remarks and stuff like that, it's kind of confusing, it kind of messes with my idea of their identity," Beckham said. "And where do they go from here? I don't know. Like I said, it's all irrelevant, it's all words, it's all in the past. There's nothing any one of us can do about it. So we move forward to San Fran."

Beckham told reporters that "of course" he would appeal the fine levied by the league for apparently throwing a punch at at Buffalo defender.

"I get punched every single game or "punched" or whatever it is — I get hit in my face every single game," Beckham said. "Like I said, it is what it is, but we're playing football and these are grown men out here. I don't think anybody should be talking about what happened after they lost the game."

Beckham did admit that he has to "walk the line" with his emotions.

"It's tough. It's tough to walk the line. You know that they're out there targeting you and they're trying to do things to you, as much as somebody wants to say that they're not, they are, and that's just the case," Beckham said. "Like I said, we're out there to play football and that's all I came here to do, to play football and do whatever this team needs."
