DeAndre Hopkins made the greatest 4-yard catch you’ll see

DeAndre Hopkins finds new ways to impress.

It was a relatively meaningless four-yard grab just before the Arizona Cardinals were forced to punt on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers. But man, was it an impossible-looking play.

Hopkins ran into a zone, bodied a linebacker and needed to reach against his momentum to one-hand an errant bullet from quarterback Kyler Murray. The grab also appeared to keep Chargers defensive back Michael Davis from picking off Murray’s pass.

Hopkins continued pacing an Arizona passing attack that against Los Angeles saw Murray back on the field after a two-game absence due to a hamstring injury. The Week 12 game was the first for the Cardinals to pair Hopkins with Hollywood Brown, who returned from a broken foot.

Hopkins had four catches for 87 yards and a 33-yard touchdown.

Brown added six grabs for 46 yards.

But the highlight in the passing attack on the day was Hopkins’ one-handed catch.

Seriously, look at this extension and slow-motion replay.

Might we call it the best four-yard catch of all-time?
