The New Orleans Saints faced off against the San Francisco 49ers today and the two sides played out one hell of a game.
In a matchup between two teams not know for their defensive prowess, the offensive side of the ball reigned supreme, as the two sides combined for an incredible 64 points as the Saints ran out 41-23 winners at Levi's Stadium.
In a game full of big plays, the highlight of it all came from Saints wide receiver Michael Thomas, who hauled in a crazy touchdown pass that helped New Orleans to victory. Scroll down to see the play.
Before you see this, just a quick reminder that Thomas is a rookie playing in his first season in pro football out of Ohio State. Now, enjoy...
Yep, despite the fact that he had his defender all of him, and with the football bobbling all around after a ricochet, Thomas still managed to haul that in.
What a play from one incredibly talented wide receiver.
Thomas came into the game with 42 receptions and 500 yards with three touchdowns to his name on the season. He bumped that up to five touchdowns against the 49ers, while he also went off for 73 yards on his five catches.
The second round pick is quickly becoming Drew Brees' favourite target in New Orleans. With plays like that, it is easy to see why.
