Odell Beckham Jr. stepped outside the realm of possibility Sunday night.

The New York Giants rookie made the catch of the year in prime time, beating Dallas Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr and grabbing an Eli Manning pass with one hand like a double-decker taco.

Simply put, Beckham's catch stunned a nation of fans, who eventually remembered to breathe and then immediately fired up Photoshop.

The following are the best memes of Beckham catching things.

Congrats, Odell. But what's the big deal? http://t.co/onJcrzn6T9

If the pictures don't tell the story, the praise Beckham received after the game from his opponents might give you an idea of how ridiculous the play was. 

"Man's a monster," Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant told reporters, via the New York Post's Zach Braziller.

Bryant elaborated: "That catch is outstanding. ... You got to give it to him, for real. ... Hat's off to him. I respect playmakers and he's a playmaker."

Of course, the Giants would honor Beckham's performance by folding and losing 31-28.
