Vote: Who made best circus catch in NFL Week 5?
If you were a football fan in Indy or the Meadowlands yesterday, the circus was in town.
At Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, the Chiefs' Dwayne Bowe made an unbelievable juggling catch in the end zone against the Colts. Check it out:
Meanwhile, Victor Cruz of the Giants made a spectacular circus catch of his own against the Seahwawks. He somehow beat double coverage to tip the ball to himself, then sprinted down the sideline for a 68-yard score. Watch the catch here.
While Cruz's circus catch was impressive, he also needed some luck with the ball bounce and defender falling. And as CBSSports.com's Will Brinson notes, Cruz's circus performance was somewhat negated by "two back-breaking turnovers that eventually cost the Giants the game."
As for Bowe, his juggling act was a display of pure athleticism and focus - somehow pulling the ball in while being interfered with by cornerback Jacob Lacey. Oh, and the Chiefs went on to win the game.
We give the edge to Bowe - what do you think?
