Pittsburgh Steelers wideout JuJu Smith-Schuster came into the day eighth in the league in receiving yards, but on Sunday against the Oakland Raiders he truly outdid himself with a catch to remember.

Facing 3rd-and-goal from the one yard line with 10 seconds left in the first half, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw a pass high to Smith-Schuster, who was able to put a hand on the ball to tip it into the air. Displaying incredible body control, Smith-Schuster turned himself around and caught the tip while keeping his toes inbounds.

The near-pirouette move and expert footwork was straight out of Swan Lake.

Smith-Schuster’s catch was so unbelievable that referees initially ruled it an incomplete pass, although it was quickly overturned. The grab was his fifth touchdown pass of the season and his third in five games.

The score gave the Steelers a 14-10 halftime lead, although Roethlisberger did not return at the start of the second half because of a rib injury he suffered earlier in the game. The Steelers ultimately lost the game when kicker Chris Boswell slipped while attempting a game-tying field goal.
