WATCH: Martavis Bryant somersaults into one of the wildest TD catches ever
Steelers wide receiver Martavis Bryant made a catch that can't be described. You have to see it.
Earlier this week, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger publicly called out wide receiver Martavis Bryant, telling him to "make tough plays and make tough catches." Well, it's safe to say Bryant responded.
In the third quarter of the Steelers-Bengals playoff game, Bryant came down with the touchdown catch of the year when he hauled in a Roethlisberger pass in the back corner of the end zone. But simply calling it a catch doesn't do it justice. No words can describe Bryant's play, but I'll give it a try: Bobble legs somersault how what catch wow touchdown. I tried.
How's this for a tough catch?
How many body parts did the ball touch before Bryant secured it?
It's been a few minutes, and I'm still now sure how to describe that catch. Let's break it down frame by frame (photos via USATSI) ...
It's looking pretty routine at this point.
And then craziness ensues.
And here's the well-deserved celebration.
Oh, and in the process, Bryant gave the Steelers at 15-point lead over the Bengals. The Steelers ended up going for a two-point conversion and failed on their attempt, but given the Bengals' currently comatose offense, that touchdown appears to have been the dagger.
This is why nobody wanted to play the sixth-seeded Steelers.
