Greg Olsen of the Carolina Panthers is having a tremendous season, and he added another highlight to his resume with a one-handed catch against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.
On the first drive of the game for Carolina, Olsen took off towards the right sideline close to the line of scrimmage when quarterback Cam Newton, under pressure, threw the ball his way. It wasn’t a perfect pass, but Olsen somehow got his hand on the ball and hauled it in for a 23-yard gain.
Here is a clip of the remarkable play.
