article imageHighlight of the Week: Jarvis Landry's amazing one-handed catch

By David Silverberg     Dec 27, 2015 in Sports
One-handed catches in the NFL are like posterizing dunks in the NBA: they're both simply delicious to watch, due to their rarity. This week gave us another highlight reel stunner thanks to Miami Dolphins star receiver Jarvis Landry.
Our sports column Highlight of the Week is back once again with another video of a wild play winning love from sports junkies across the world.
The Giants' Odell Beckham Jr. isn't the only talented receiver turning heads with his one-handed catches. Landry is also making the remarkable look easy, as was the case this Sunday in a game versus the Indianapolis Colts.
In a fourth quarter drive in Colts territory, Dolphins QB Ryan Tannehill dropped back to pass, and looked towards Landry, who was closely covered. But Tannehill rocketed the ball to the only place Landry could snag it...with one hand.
Landry took down the 14-yard reception with a single mitt, as if he had glue on his palm.
Despite the highlight play, the Dolphins were only able to score a field goal in the drive and fell to the Colts 18-12. The Dolphins have been out of playoffs contention for several weeks but the Colts have a sliver of a chance.
Landry is 18th on the list of top receivers this year, with 97 receptions and 974 yards and four TDs.
Landry's stunner isn't the only newsworthy catch he's pulled in this year.
In a game against the Eagles, Landry soared high in the air to snap up a deflected pass, scoring an unlikely TD:
And one-handed catches are commonplace to Landry, in fact, as we saw in this practice video from several weeks ago:
Landry and Beckham Jr, who were teammates at LSU, even showcased this unique receiving technique in a video released three months ago:
NFL action continues tonight when the Giants take on the Vikings. The Monday night pits two top-tier teams in the Bengals and the Broncos.
Our recent Highlight of the Week looked at a thunderous dunk courtesy the Clippers DeAndre Jordan.
