Jefferson’s Catch Is Seen As The Best Of The Century

But what makes this catch better than every other amazing catch in NFL history?
To find the answer, fans just need to watch what the young receiver does to make this catch.
On fourth-and-18, Kirk Cousins drops back to make one last attempt to prolong the game.
He then throws to Jefferson, who has to make a leaping catch.
However, it’s not just the leap which makes this the best catch ever.
What makes this so amazing is how he rips the ball away from the defender, all with just one hand.
Despite the defender having two hands on the ball, Jefferson wrestles it away with one hand.
The one-handed steal, along with this being a game-defining catch, is what makes it the best catch in NFL history.
No other catch has changed the course of a game since the helmet catch in Super Bowl 42.
