There have been plenty of memorable, on-the-ground catches in the NFL.
So what happens when you combine the two? You get...the butt interception.
That physics-defying catch stunned even Lattimore.
"I must be living right, I don't know," Lattimore said, via ESPN. "I don't know. They're gonna have to call it what they want. ... But it was a great play and we won, so that's all I can think about."
Imagine that: Diving to make a play, seeing a live ball deflect up in the air, ripe for intercepting but seemingly out of reach, landing on your leg and staying off the ground and then pinning the still-live ball against your rear end in a game that ended in a win for your team. The only fortune better than that comes in the Mega Millions.
"Everybody else was trying to grab it. So I just had to keep it in my possession," Lattimore said.
