Brandon Marshall hauls in "near-impossible" touchdown catch

Brandon Marshall has been one of the best wide receivers in the entire NFL in the last few years.

The former Chicago Bears man, now doing his thing with the New York Jets, showed that age is nothing but a number today as his side takes on Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers in one of the day's early games. 

Marshall has had to put up with the terrible quarterback play of Ryan Fitzpatrick this season and again saved his QB's blushes with an incredible touchdown catch that you can see below...

What a play that is. Fitzpatrick criminally underthrew the football and Marshall had to play cornerback on the pass in an attempt to make sure it didn't get picked off by the Pittsburgh cornerback.

But Marshall did a whole lot better than that. Somehow, the veteran receiver not only stops the interception but he also manages to bat the ball perfectly in the air to set up a juggling touchdown catch. CBS New York summed it up perfectly, calling the catch "near-impossible."

Here's another angle.

This Jets team, which is struggling on both offense and defense, genuinely don't deserve a player as good as Brandon Marshall. He is wasted on this bad team.

At the time of writing, the Steelers were leading 24-13 with not long left.
