Houston Texans wide receiver DeVier Posey reeled in his first NFL touchdown reception, and he did it at the perfect time during the team's AFC Divisional Round matchup with the New England Patriots

Posey, who has seen his playing time increase as the season progressed, laid out flat for a 25-yard pass from quarterback Matt Schaub. He bobbled it but managed to gain control of the pass before sliding out of bounds—which was confirmed after Houston head coach Gary Kubiak challenged the play. 

The touchdown is the ultimate example of outstanding concentration by an NFL wide receiver throughout the course of a difficult reception. It comes from a rookie in Posey, on the grandest stage of them all—the 2012 NFL playoffs.
