Earlier this week, Ben Roethlisberger called on Martavis Bryant to step up and make plays to help the Steelers. During Saturday’s wild card game against the Bengals, Bryant did just that.
During the third quarter, with the the Steelers up 9-0, Bryant made one of the more remarkable catches for a touchdown you’re likely to see anytime soon. He had to turn his body and stretch to haul in the pass in the first place. Then, on his way to the ground, Bryant pinned the ball against his body and proceeded to do a somersault.

The play was reviewed and the original call on the field of a touchdown was upheld. After watching the play over a few times, I still have absolutely no idea how in the world Martavis Bryant held on to the football. One thing I do know, it will be on every highlight show for the next few days.
