Puca Nakua made an incredible catch when the Los Angeles Rams took on the New Orleans Saints yesterday. Was it the catch of the year? You tell me. I am sure I am having some recency bias, and I’ll need to watch some high lights of the best catches of the year, but either way what a catch. Is it the best catch for the Rams so far this season? Have their been more clutch catches?

In terms of the physicality I don’t know if I’ve seen better this year. Please enlighten me if I am missing something! Admittedly I don’t think I see every play from every game of every season so there certainly could be some good ones this year that I’ve missed or am not thinking of.

Either way, WHAT A RAMS WIN! Talk about a gift for the holidays. Please comment on whatever you’d like and happy victory Friday!

“The two-way star was at SoFi Stadium before the “Thursday Night Football” matchup between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams. He was gifted a custom Rams jersey bearing his name with the No. 17 — the number he wore with the Los Angeles Angels.

Ohtani’s appearance at SoFi comes after he was named AP Male Athlete of the Year for the second time in three years.”

Saints at Rams Thursday Night Football highlights: Puka Nacua helps LA boost playoff hopes (usatoday)

“Rams QB Matthew Stafford: The Rams quarterback has been playing at an elite level since his recovery from a thumb injury that hampered him in the early parts of the season and caused him to miss the Week 9 game against the Green Bay Packers. This was Stafford’s fourth straight game without an interception and he was 24-for-34 with 328 yards and two touchdowns against the Saints with two touchdowns. He needed to target only four receivers to do it. And the Rams are now 5-1 — the lone loss in overtime against the Baltimore Ravens — over their past six, primed for the postseason, thanks in large part to their quarterback.”
