Close-up of Odell Beckham Jr.'s unbelievable catch makes it even more incredible (PHOTO)

If you didn't see Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. make what is being called one of the greatest catches of all time on dozens of replays Sunday night, you're sure to see it all over ESPN along with the tweets and numerous memes making the rounds on the Internet Monday morning.

Some might say that the only thing that could have possibly made the rookie's acrobatic, one-handed grab of Eli Manning's wayward throw any better would be if The Odell  — as the catch is being called — helped lead to a Giants win.

Not true. When you look at a close-up of Beckham's hand on the play, it reveals something else to be marveled at.

That's correct. Not only did Beckham make a one-handed catch while falling backwards with a defender in the way, but he snagged the football with only three fingers.

  1. It was a very nice catch! Those are the three fingers that are critical in any catch! The ring and pinky fingers add support to reception. Sticky gloves help with great concentration! I.E. "Lobster Boy"!!!! Eh!!
