Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown led the NFL with 129 catches last season, but he came up a bit short of the NFL single-season record of 143, set by Marvin Harrison of the Colts back in 2002.

Oh, well. He'll just have to settle for a world record instead. With the help of ESPN's Sports Science (you can watch the full video in that link), Brown set the world record for catching a ball from the highest point ever (360 feet).

The Sports Science crew used a drone to drop the football to Brown, who hauled it in while it was reportedly traveling over 80 miles per hour.
