How in the world did Tre’Quan Smith hang onto this ball? That’s a question you’re going to ask yourself, no matter how many times you watch the video.

Check out this incredible catch by Smith, who was hit so hard his helmet flew off as he got sandwiched between two defenders after hauling in this pass from Drew Brees.


Even better, this reception came on 3rd-and-8 for the Saints, who have struggled offensively in Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons. The definition of clutch.
