NFL stars are some of the most spectacular athletes on the planet. There’s nothing better than when a quarterback launches a pass toward a receiver and they pull off an amazing catch. Some of these wideouts produce the greatest catches of all time with jaw-dropping athleticism.
So today, we looked back at some of the greatest catches in NFL history. Many of them took place in clutch situations after the QB threw a desperate Hail Mary pass. There are also many one-handed catches and acrobatic efforts that saw players struggle to stay in bounds. Relive the greatest catches in NFL history right here.
Stefon Diggs – 2022
There were two brilliant catches in the space of a week in 2022. Justin Jefferson stole the headlines with his mesmerizing effort against the Bills but Diggs also had a brilliant moment. He produced an outstanding 25-yard reception of a Josh Allen pass against his former team (via Democrat & Chronicle).
He leaped into the air with one arm raised high and calmly snatched the ball out of the sky. It seemed like there were magnets in his gloves and the ball because he made it look so easy. Ultimately, the Vikings won the game and overshadowed Diggs’ highlight moment but it was still fantastic.
