Jimmy Graham only needed one hand to catch a Russell Wilson touchdown pass against the Buffalo Bills on Monday night. Twice.
The first was a spectacular grab on a throw that was just as spectacular from Wilson, as the Seahawks’ quarterback dropped a dime to his tight end while throwing off of his back foot.
Graham made the one-handed catch while Bills safety Robert Blanton had his left arm locked up as he reached the end zone. It didn’t matter, as Wilson dropped the pass over Buffalo’s secondary to hit Graham in stride, bringing the ball down with his right hand and getting both feat down easily before hitting the white paint.
Blanton was actually called for pass interference on the play, but it didn’t matter. Look at that concentration from Graham:
Graham missed the final five games of last season after a serious knee injury that required surgery. Graham has had an uneven season in his second year in Seattle, with only a handful of targets over his first few games. Judging by this score, his hands are still fine. Maybe he’s rounding back into shape.
Graham celebrated the score by pretending to fly like an airplane. He then spiked the football. The catch was more impressive than the celebration, but I suppose only the catch actually counts.
Later in the quarter, Graham caught a pass from Wilson and leapt right over Bills corner Stephon Gilmore.
Graham finished off that drive with his second one-handed touchdown of the game. This one may have been even more impressive than his first one-handed effort.
I mean if we’re being honest he DID use his left hand a bit to secure that one before it hit the ground. But either way yeah, he looks pretty healthy to me.
