Darius Slayton grab

Darius Slayton just made one of the best catches of the year.

The New York Giants receiver set the team up to plunge into the end zone with an unbelievable grab. Slayton caught a deep pass by quarterback Daniel Jones in insane, spectacular fashion. The Giants receiver went up and challenged Dallas Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown for a ball high up in the air. Suffice it to say, Slayton won the battle for the ball.

There have already been some amazing catches this NFL season. Justin Jefferson set the pace with his incredible grab against Buffalo earlier this season. While that might be up for the GOAT argument, this one is pretty damn good itself.

Another angle, provided by the NFL’s Twitter account, showed off the sheer brilliance of the catch. Just like the NFL tweeted, it was “like a backyard game of 500.”

To add more magnificence to the catch, the Giants followed it up well. They scored on a rushing touchdown on the doorstep by Saquon Barkley two plays later. Slayton’s assist to the Barkley touchdown might be remembered fondly if the Giants steal the game from the Cowboys.

The NFL world reacted with sheer amazement to the awesome catch by Slayton.
