We didn’t have to wait long to see a strong candidate for catch of the year. Oh, just 13 minutes into the first Monday Night Football game of the season.
With the Texans deep in their own territory, Deshaun Watson let fly a long pass to Will Fuller who only had to contend with Eli Apple in coverage.
But just look at how Fuller brought in that 54-yard catch — an underthrown pass. He completely Moss’d Apple.
Seriously, what a grab. Fuller had to reach back and around the Saints defensive back and still managed to come down with the football.
NFL fans responded appropriately to the catch. They went nuts.
