Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson saved his "game of the year" for the most difficult matchup on the schedule, a Week 10 clash with the Buffalo Bills. The Vikings walked out of Highmark Stadium with an improbable win, 8-1 record, and Jefferson's nomination for catch of the year.

Trailing by four points with just two minutes in regulation and facing 4th and 18, Kirk Cousins dropped back and delivered a prayer to Jefferson near the Vikings 45-yard mark. It's still hard to comprehend what ensued.

Jefferson leaped to make an impossible one-handed grab. Just a few days removed from this impressive feat, NFL Films released a behind-the-scenes look at his Vikings teammates reacting to the catch.

Clearly in awe of what he just saw, Za'Darius Smith had a simple but effective response to the play. "Bro, he's different. He's different."

Moments later, Adam Thielen caught up with Jefferson on the sideline. The only word he could muster was "What?!", a phrase he repeated over and over to the young star.

This is a moment that will go down in Vikings lore, and rightfully so. Pretty cool to see NFL Films capture such an intimate view of the reactions.
