In the second quarter of the Rams-Giants game in London on Sunday, Los Angeles quarterback quarterback Case Keenum threw what looked like a routine pass over the middle of the field, right at receiver Tavon Austin.
But the ball hit off Austin’s hands and caromed into the arms of Giants safety Landon Collins. The Giants were obviously glad to have the ball (since it really should have been caught for a Rams’ first down), but given that Collins was in the middle of the defensive backfield, with all 11 Rams in front of him, there wasn’t much hope of a return.
But after, some broken tackles, a cutback and a powerful final surge at the goal line, Collins had himself a game-tying touchdown that truly inspired awe.
Are you kidding, @TheHumble_21?!?!?
This Landon Collins INT return TD is INSANE.
Let’s the freeze the clip where Collins caught the ball:
At this point, what are his odds of scoring? He’s running the wrong way, is about to be tackled and has every single player on the field between himself and the end zone. It’s totally impossible.
And yet, Collins made it happen. If that’s not the best interception return you’ve ever seen, it’s gotta be on the shortlist.
