What may interest you, however, is the manner in which Owens recorded said game-winning touchdown reception—with a one-handed leaping grab.

After the game, Owens actually gave some credit for the catch to New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham:
“It just goes to show that if you practise something you improve at it and you’re ready when the moment comes. That’s what I told the guys, everything you do, that if you prepare like a champion, you can expect to make champion-like play … I think [New York Giants star] Odell Beckham Jr. has really lit a fire for many receivers — if you practise something, you can make it happen, Every receiver must believe in his hands; it just so happened that I only needed one.”
