Brett Favre & Antonio Freeman combined for many touchdown passes but the one you are about to view definitely stands out. Many consider this one of the greatest circus catches of all time. You be the judge on that!
The setting is a Monday Night Football Game on November 6, 2000. The game was between the Packers & the Vikings. Close game that went into over time at 20-20. On third down Brett Favre throws a pass down the sideline to Antonio Freeman. He pulls off a circus catch that the announcers in the booth thought it was incomplete!
The ball goes through the defenders hands and onto the back of Antonio Freeman who is now on the ground. It bounces off his back and Antonio makes this split second miracle grab. The defenders think it is incomplete but Antonio gets up & runs into the end zone. After further review by officials the PLAY STANDS! Packers Win 26-20 and Lambeau goes wild!!
Brett Favre & Antonio Freeman Love This Circus Catch!
