Jefferson’s incredible 4th-down catch

Throughout his short career, we’ve seen Vikings star wide receiver Justin Jefferson make some very impressive plays. But none might ever top what he did on Sunday in Buffalo.

With less than two minutes left to go in the fourth quarter, Minnesota needed a miracle to convert a 4th-and-18 from their own 27-yard line into a first down. Once he received the snap, Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins decided to fire the ball in the direction of Jefferson, and the rest was history.

Somehow, someway, Jefferson hauled in the catch to give the Vikings a first down and keep their comeback hopes alive. This reception is easily one of the greatest in Minnesota’s franchise history, if not the greatest.

Once Jefferson made this catch, it felt like something else was on the Vikings’ side, and a victory was almost inevitable.

Unfortunately, Minnesota was unable to end this offensive drive with a go-ahead touchdown after they were shut down on the goal line. However, that failure led to the Vikings’ third and final gigantic turning point of the matchup.
