In partnership with the NFL in the UK


Dolphins Cornerback has claimed to have already done the Beckham catch

Published Add your comment

What a week we have seen in the NFL, Ray Rice has been re-instated in the league and the Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks stole the show on a great Thanksgiving.

Arguably the biggest on the field moment this week however has come out of New York and the catch seen around the world.

It has been described as the greatest catch in NFL history by New York Giants Wide Receiver Odell Beckham Jr (seen below).

Everyone appears to have an opinion on Beckham's catch which saw him use just one hand to grab the ball that was far behind his head.

Most are filled with admiration of the rookie's catch but one man, whilst admiring the catch claims to have done one better himself.


Miami Dolphins Cornerback Brent Grimes is the man with the current boldest claim in football which dates back to week 10.

During the week 10 clash between the Dolphins and the Detroit Lions, Grimes picked off Quarterback Matthew Stafford with a very similar catch (seen below).

"I jumped and everything. I was on defense. They weren't throwing me the ball." - Brent Grimes on Beckham's catch

It's not hard to see why Grimes is proud of his effort given the fact that it was in the endzone against arguably the best Wide Receiver in football.

The sheer athleticism from both men in the catches make them very interesting to compare and it will surely be an issue that divides football fans.

Grimes looking the wrong way?

Grimes was certainly looking the right way when he intercepted Stafford's pass, but should he now be looking forward rather than backwards in the season.

Grimes has been a part of the impressive 6-5 Dolphins season and with them pushing for a place in the post-season, they will need all the focus they can get.

With a game against their divisional rivals in the New York Jets on Monday Night Football next week, they will be very confident of the win.

The Jets are struggling massively this year and a win over their rivals will only strengthen the Dolphins play-off push.

Currently occupying the 10th seed in the AFC, it is still a tall task that faces the Dolphins so they will need every win they can muster if they are to reach the play-offs for the first time since 2008.
