I know it’s a little early to start crowing any one play as the “Catch of the Year,” but at the same time …
… MY GOD:

I’ve watched that catch like 25 times now and I still have trouble figuring out when exactly he put leather on the ball. Is he making that catch as he flips over the fence? If so, that’s unbelievable.
And don’t sleep on how far he had to run to get to that spot in the first place:
That’s one hell of a run and I suspect the angle of the camera is making it seem even shorter than it really is. Dude. I’m blown away.
Maybe this catch won’t hold up as the best 2019 has to offer, but there’s no doubt that he’s set the bar high. We’re going to need something really spectacular to top that any time soon.
