9. Marvin Jones gets some hang-time vs Chicago (2017)
I call this one the ‘Angels in the Outfield’ catch, as it has some resemblance to a miraculous grab that Matthew McConaughey makes with the help of some angels in the 1994 Disney movie.
In a 2017 Week 15 matchup against Chicago Bears, Stafford makes a 58-yard heave to Marvin Jones Jr., who double pumps his body in mid-air, freezes there for a second like he’s in the Matrix, and snatches away what Bears defender Eddie Jackson must have thought was a sure interception.
Having played for the Lions for four years now, it sometimes feels like Jones is the forgotten man among Lions’ receiving threats. He arrived under the shadow of the retiring Calvin Johnson, then was overshadowed on the field first by Golden Tate, and now by Kenny Golladay.
With that said, catches like this one (and many others) show that Jones is every bit the big play threat as the others, also with a flair for the truly spectacular every now and then.
