On any given Sunday, there are many plays across the National Football League that take our collective breath away, be it a surgically precise touchdown strike, a long touchdown run or a bone-crushing hit from a defensive player.
However, few plays in football are as exciting as a wide receiver or tight end making a seemingly impossible catch, whether it's leaping high to pluck the ball from the air in the corner of the end zone or diving to the turf to snatch a pass before it hits the ground, keeping a late drive alive.
The Buffalo Bills may have lost a close game to the New York Jets today at the New Meadowlands Stadium, but fault for the Bills fourth consecutive defeat can't really be laid at the feet of sixth-year quarterback/wide receiver Brad Smith, who led Buffalo with 77 receiving yards on four catches and scored his second touchdown of the season.
Smith's touchdown reception as the thing of beauty, as the former Missouri standout showed outstanding athleticism is snagging a deflected pass off New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie and scampered into the end zone from 36 yards out.
It's that Ryan Fitzpatrick to Brad Smith by way of Antonio Cromartie carom that we celebrate here as Week 12's coolest catch, so relax, have a snack and enjoy as the reeling Bills play a bit of pigskin pinball in the Big Apple.
