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.
