Red zone passing touchdowns are art. The play design and execution have to be essentially perfect for the play to be a success, so when it happens, it's an incredible thing to watch. Every once in a while, this already great play has a little extra added flair to it.

A classic example was when Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Martavis Bryant caught a touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Lined up at the 10-yard line, Ben Roethlisberger threw a pass to the corner of the end zone, which forced Bryant to adjust to the ball. The receiver showed off his ball skills and athleticism on this play, coming down with the impressive touchdown catch.

What looks like a juggling touchdown catch becomes more impressive when slowed down. Bryant's momentum was taking him out of bounds, while he was trying to secure the catch. This led to him reaching around and securing the catch behind his legs, as he flipped out of bounds.

This is one of those plays that is impressive no matter how many times you watch it. It shows off the potential that Bryant possessed at the time. It is a shame that he went down an alternate path in his career, however with his recent application for reinstatement, hopefully, we get to see more of Bryant on an NFL field in the future.
