There’s a lesson to be learned for Kyle Arrington: sometimes, there’s just nothing you can do.
The Patriots’ cornerback found himself caught between a perfect pass from Mark Sanchez and an even better catch by Santonio Holmes in the corner of the end zone in Sunday’s loss to the Jets. Holmes gets his right knee down when it seems like he was completely out of room.
If it was a game-winner, it would rate among the best playoff catches of all time. Even so, the catch was eerily similar to two others made by Holmes: his game-winning touchdown in Week 11 against the Texans and the catch that NFL Films president Steve Sabol calls the best in the history of the NFL.
Holmes is making his living with these clutch catches in the back of the end zone. Take another look to enjoy the moment.
