Catch of the week? Former Ohio State star Terry McLaurin makes sensational grab
The Washington Football Team fell behind early in the first half of their 2021 season opener with the Los Angeles Chargers, and struggled in the first half only managing to convert a trio of Dustin Hopkins field goals to get on the board and went into the half trailing 13-6.
Then during the first drive of the third quarter, an 11-yard touchdown pass to Logan Thomas gave Washington a 16-13 lead — but the play of the drive belonged to wide receiver Terry McLaurin.

McLaurin adjusted to the throw, and while the pass initially looked to be intercepted, he managed to reel it in and get one side down before going out of bounds. The 37-yard completion ended up on the Chargers 11-yard line, with Heinicke tossing for the touchdown on the next play.
The former Ohio State standout was catchless during the first half, but on the scoring drive McLaurin pulled in three receptions for 48 yards, including the highlight reel play.
Entering the NFL in 2019 out of Ohio State, McLaurin posted 2,037 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns on 145 receptions through his first two seasons in the league.
