More than 12 hours after the end of Sunday night’s Giants-Cowboys game, the Internet was still abuzz over Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr.‘s acrobatic one-handed catch.
“Odell” was still trending on Twitter in New York as of 12:45 p.m. Eastern Time. “Odell Beckham Jr.” was also Google’s second-hottest trending search topic in the U.S. early Monday afternoon Eastern time, trailing only Iggy Azalea.
Beckham Jr.’s catch, in which he seemed to only be gripping the football with three fingers but managed to hold on to it, was dubbed an instant classic by Sunday Night Football announcer Cris Collinsworth.
“Put this to music. … That may be the greatest catch I’ve ever seen,” he said, watching a slow-motion replay. “You have to be kidding me. That is impossible. That is absolutely impossible what he just did. That may be the greatest catch I’ve ever seen in my life.”
