Two years ago today: Odell Beckham Jr. makes greatest catch of all-time

POSTED BY: ODELL BECKHAM JR in NEWS

Exactly two years ago today, then-New York Giants rookie wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. became an instant superstar.

In a 31-28 loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Beckham Jr. hauled in what is still considered to be the single greatest catch in NFL history — a catch that landed Beckham Jr.’s jersey and gloves in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Leading 7-3 early in the second quarter, Eli Manning launched one 43 yards down the sideline to Beckham Jr., who was being interfered with by Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr.

Despite the interference, Beckham Jr. went up and then parallel to the ground to haul in the one-handed touchdown. The play went on to win multiple awards and propel OBJ to the AP NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award.

In the days and weeks after the catch, Beckham Jr. insisted he did not want to be defined by that one moment. Since then, he’s gone on to haul in several more dazzling receptions, but none greater than that one under the lights.

Although he’s no longer defined by “The Catch,” even Beckham Jr. has come to love and embrace that moment. After all, it’s one of the greatest single plays in NFL history.
