Best catches of NFL Week 8

(Everyone appreciates a ridiculous football catch, so Shutdown Corner took the liberty of compiling the best grabs of NFL Week 8. Check out the list and give your opinion in the comments section below the post.)

No. 5: Calvin Johnson's 87-yard catch-and-run – "Megatron" got a huge chunk of his record-setting 329 receiving yards on a single play, catching a quick slant pass and bolting 87 yards at the end of the first quarter to set up a Detroit Lions touchdown.

No. 4: Dez Bryant's catch-spin-run TD – Bryant got plenty of attention for his sideline antics during the Dallas Cowboys' 31-30 meltdown against the Detroit Lions, but what he did on the field deserves attention as well. Bryant's 50-yard catch-spin-run TD was something to behold and gave the Cowboys a 27-17 lead with 6:45 left.

No. 3: Calvin Johnson's leaping catch in the clutch – Calvin Johnson is pretty good. He showed that again on Sunday with the best effort of his career. But his 54-yard catch in double coverage was clearly his best catch of the day as his team had just went down 10 points midway through the fourth quarter. The Lions needed a bail out. "Megatron" obliged.

No. 2: Dez Bryant one-handed TD catch – Bryant's first TD of the Cowboys-Lions game was even more impressive than his second. Just before halftime Tony Romo threw a back-shoulder pass to Bryant, who managed to pin the ball against his pad and helmet with his left hand before reeling in the five-yard TD grab. With plays like that, sideline tantrums can be overlooked.

No. 1: Pierre Garcon's leaping one-handed grab – The Washington Redskins couldn't match the Denver Broncos blow-for-blow in a 45-21 loss on Sunday, but Garcon still provided the catch of the day in the first quarter.
