This degree of difficulty stat on Agholor's amazing TD catch is crazy originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
The Patriots were facing a third-and-3 from the Steelers' 44-yard line with 22 seconds remaining in the second quarter when quarterback Mac Jones took a shot deep down the right side of the field to wide receiver Nelson Agholor.
Agholor leaped up and made an absolutely amazing catch over Steelers defensive back Ahkello Witherspoon and ran into the end zone. The score put the Patriots up 10-3 after a mostly sluggish first half for both offenses.
