Video: The Best Football Catch You’ve Ever Seen

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 11/24/14

New York Giants' Odell Beckham, Jr. amazes football fans in recent game against Dallas Cowboys.

If you weren’t watching, here was the set up: Second quarter, and the New York Giants were on the Dallas Cowboys 43-yard line. Quarterback Eli Manning, threw the ball towards the end zone to Odell Beckham, Jr., who was being covered by Brandon Carr, and then Beckham made what many have called the best touchdown catch they’ve ever seen. Even if you’re not a football fan, everyone can appreciate excellence. When a person does something extraordinary — in sports, the arts, medicine, you name it — it’s worth a pause, to celebrate skill and talent, and to be inspired to always strive for our own personal best.
