In the second quarter of the game against the Denver Broncos, Lamar Jackson found his wideout DEEP downfield to give Baltimore the lead.
Jackson’s throw was perfect in its own right, but Brown’s leaping-in-the-air-both-arms-outstretched reception? He might has well have worn a red cape, because that was nothing short of a Superman catch.
Check out the highlight below:
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Marquise Brown just had an unbelievable catch
As Twitter memes will point out, Brown has struggled in holding onto the ball — last game against Detroit, he caught just three of his seven targets for a 42.9 percent catch rate with three crucial drops.
What the stats don’t show is how many of the drops were potential scores or big plays. Had Brown caught anything substantial thrown at him that game, the Ravens wouldn’t have needed Justin Tucker to win the game at the last second (literally, the very last second).
That’s in the past, for now at least, as Brown has sufficiently redeemed himself with this godly reception to get Baltimore back in this game.
We can guess why his nickname is “Hollywood” Brown, since he’s currently one of the shining stars in the Ravens’ wide receiver room in Week 4.
Give this guy an Oscar for best catch of the day. He deserves it.
