For the second straight week, Cleveland Browns tight end Gary Barnidge made a ridiculous catch in the red zone. Last week, he made a circus catch at the one-yard line that set up the game-tying touchdown—forget about what happened later—and this week he used every part of his lower body, including his butt, to reel in this desperation throw from Josh McCown on third-and-five. McCown was under serious duress and just threw a jump ball and somehow Barnidge was able to keep it alive in his legs before finally pinning it against his own butt for security.
It took officials a little while to process it—I mean, you'd think it just had to hit the ground somehow—but they eventually ruled it a catch and touchdown. Ravens coach John Harbaugh seemed to handle it in stride.
