First up with the magic hands, Anquan Boldin:
After the jump, there's a Lee Evans catch that might even be better:
Both times in coverage, it was cornerback Kareem Jackson, who has the misfortune of being the Texans cornerback who is not Johnathan Joseph. And in both cases, he had decent position, he just didn't make the play. And I'll forgive him if he was just as surprised as anyone else that Lee Evans had it in him to make that catch.

Also, so he doesn't cry, I'll note that they were both good throws from Joe Flacco. Not that that was necessarily the norm on Sunday, in a game that close, just a few big plays are enough to make the difference.
