The Seattle Seahawks took a 7-0 lead over the Detroit Lions in second quarter of their Wild Card game on Saturday night when Seattle wide receiver Paul Richardson hauled in one of the most outrageous one-handed catches you’ll ever see.
With the ball on the 2-yard line, the Seahawks opted to go for it on 4th down. On the snap, Russell Wilson rolled to his right and floated the ball toward the back corner of the end zone. There, Richardson was being pulled to the ground by Detroit cornerback Tavon Wilson.
Somehow, Richardson managed to catch the ball, which was underthrown, with one hand around Wilson’s body.
Pass interference was called on Wilson. But did Richardson get away with a face mask foul? One could argue that it should have been off-setting penalties.
Still, how did he catch this?
