T.J. Hockenson fights through contact for incredible catch
T.J. Hockenson knows how to add style points to a two-point conversion catch!
The young tight end out of Iowa continues to perform like a complete player with the Detroit Lions. Hockenson is able to block and catch with the best of them, and he added a touchdown catch and two-point conversion catch to his numbers on Sunday.
This time, it was the two-point conversion catch that was especially impressive. He ran a nice in-then-out route off the snap and was instantly smothered by his defender. Even with the tight coverage, Matt Stafford zoned in on Hockenson.
He had to go up and over his defender in order to secure the catch, which he did in dramatic fashion:
