Terry McLaurin made the best catch of the Redskins season on Sunday in Green Bay. The rookie wideout's touchdown grab came late in the fourth quarter and brought the Redskins within one score of the Packers.
Redskins interim head coach Bill Callahan has worked in the NFL for more than 20 years and been in football his whole life. Still, McLaurin's catch floored him.
"It was phenomenal. Just absolutely phenomenal," Callahan said of the TD grab at Lambeau Field. "It's unbelievable. The plays that he's made this year for a rookie player, I don't know. It's great to have him."
Of the play, McLaurin explained after the game he knew the ball was coming his way and he just wanted to make a play for his quarterback, and college teammate, Dwayne Haskins.
"I knew in that situation I was going to get the ball. So I just wanted to widen the hole for Dwayne," the rookie wideout said. "As soon as I hit my outside foot, he threw it, which is great timing. I stuck my hand out there and [the ball] stuck to it, so that's my first one-handed catch in my career."
The first one-handed catch of his career?
The catch, a leaping, one-handed stab at a football moving at rocket speed, seemed near impossible in real time. In fact, watching this video from Joe Glorioso, it might have been impossible after all.
For McLaurin, it wasn't impossible after all.
