Justin Jefferson catch against bills
Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson is officially “HIM” after pulling off the greatest catch in recent memory to help overcome the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Jefferson, 23, was already a household name in the NFL, but the one-handed catch on fourth down cemented his legacy in the league.
Fans will forever remember the incredible reception Jefferson made despite Bills defensive back Cam Lewis crowding his catch radius.
Jefferson’s catch on 4th & 18 with less than two minutes left to play set off the craziest sequence of the season.
Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins found Jefferson again right after the amazing catch, this time near the end zone in what was first ruled as a touchdown.
After the TD was called back, Vikings turned the ball over on downs, but on the next play, Bills QB Josh Allen fumbled the ball in his own end zone for the Minnesota defense to recover and score.
Buffalo forced overtime with a field goal, but lost after Allen threw an interception.
Jefferson finished the game with a career-high 193 receiving yards on 10 catches, including a touchdown.
One hand catch
That’s the approach that Kirk Cousins and the Vikings offense took on Sunday against the Bills, and to great effect.
The star wide receiver was already having a standout game before Minnesota’s final offensive possession. Then, he pulled off one of the best catches you’ll ever see.
Facing a fourth-and-18 with under two minutes to play, Cousins heaved the ball up to Jefferson in heavy traffic.
Bills defensive back Cam Lewis appeared well in position to make the interception—but Jefferson had other ideas.
That incredible grab set off perhaps the most chaotic sequences of the season. After advancing the ball inside the 10-yard line, Cousins found Jefferson again for what was initially ruled as a go-ahead touchdown. Officials overturned the call, saying that Jefferson was down at the 1-yard line.
After an offsides penalty moved the ball even closer, Cousins attempted a quarterback sneak but was stuffed, giving the ball back to the Bills.
On the ensuing play, however, Buffalo quarterback Josh Allen fumbled the snap, and the Vikings recovered in the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown.
But Allen and the Bills were not done yet, with the offense getting into field goal range in four plays and 39 seconds. Tyler Bass hit the 29-yard field goal to send the game into overtime.
