Nick Bosa pulled off one of the most impressive rookie seasons we've seen from an edge defender in quite some time. In fact, Pro Football Focus even gave him a better grade than Khalil Mack. Bosa finished the year with 47 tackles, 25 quarterback hits, 16 tackles for loss, 9 sacks and 1 interception.

But that pick was one of the most electric plays of the San Francisco 49ers season, and perhaps, the NFL season in general.

Right off the bat, the fact that Bosa even made the interception is ridiculous. He shoves off the Carolina Panthers' offensive lineman with ease, reads the play, then leaps up to snatch the interception.

He puts a slick move on Kyle Allen and is off to the races. He shakes off DJ Moore with an effortless stiff-arm, jukes out Allen (again) before ultimately being brought down by Moore around the 9-yard line. Bosa is then rightfully swarmed by a celebratory group of his 49ers teammates.

If he can keep making plays like this, Bosa could be in for a truly special sophomore campaign in 2020.
