The young wide receiver stunned fans on Thursday night as he caught the ball at full stretch from what seemed like an impossible angle, with his body almost horizontal with the ground while doing so.

Pickens also made the catch with one hand, and his acrobatics helped the Steelers score their first touchdown of the night. The catch has drawn comparisons to Odell Beckham Jr, with the current LA Rams star attributed with one of the greatest catches of all-time while he was a rookie at the New York Giants.

And Beckham Jr even gave his instant reaction to Pickens' grab on Twitter, as he said: "This catch is filthy". Pickens was one of the Steelers' standout stars in pre season, but has been frustrated since the NFL got back underway until now.
