It’s been a bleak season for the Philadelphia Eagles, so when one of their players makes a play as ridiculous as Jason Avant’s one-handed catch against the Tampa Bay Bucs, it must be celebrated. And GIF’d multiple ways.
The instant reactions to Avant’s grab on Twitter were to call it a catch of the year candidate. It was most certainly the best catch an Eagle has made all season.

At a totally irrelevant moment, Jason Avant made maybe the best catch I’ve seen in 47 years of watching pro football #Eagles
