In the 11th game of his NFL career and first of the 2017 season, Maurice Harris finally found the end zone for his first career touchdown.

And immediately found himself atop the list of the best catches of the 2017 campaign.

After the initial incompletion call, the Washington Redskins challenged and were awarded the six points. Here’s another angle.

The 36-yard touchdown grab against the Minnesota Vikings caught Redskins fans and non-Washington fans alike off guard.


As a rookie in 2016, Harris made eight catches for 66 yards in 10 games.

The 25-year-old had been playing on Washington’s practice squad in 2017 before he was called up on Saturday.
