On Wednesday, Minnesota Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson earned an ESPY award for his amazing catch during his team's win over the Buffalo Bills last season.

Justin Jefferson has made a number of jaw-dropping receptions during his three-year tenure with the Minnesota Vikings. But none were arguably more impressive than the improbable, one-handed reception he had during Minnesota's Week 10 win over the Buffalo Bills last season.

On Wednesday, that moment was cemented into sports history when Jefferson was awarded the ESPY for Best Play.

Minnesota Vikings WR Justin Jefferson says there's "more to come"

Jefferson was in attendance for the ESPYs on Wednesday, which meant he was able to accept the award in person.

After WWE superstars Seth "Freakin" Rollins and Becky Lynch announced the winner of this year's Best Play honor, Jefferson went on stage and made sure to let everyone know that his "catch of the century" is just the beginning when it comes to him winning awards for impressive performances.

Considering he's still just 24-years-old, it's scary to think that Jefferson hasn't even reached his full potential yet. The Minnesota pass-catcher has already broken multiple NFL records and he's coming off of a 2022 season that resulted in him being named the league's Offensive Player of the Year.

Within the next few weeks, there's also a good possibility that Jefferson could sign a lucrative extension with the Vikings that could make him one of the highest-paid non-quarterbacks in the entire NFL.

In just three years, Jefferson has quickly emerged as arguably the best wide receiver in the league, and any success Minnesota has during the next few seasons is likely going to be due in part to what their superstar pass-catcher accomplishes out on the field.
