It has been one big play after another in the Arizona Cardinals season-opener against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday afternoon. First, it was rookie Tyrann Mathieu that chased down Rams tight end Jared Cook to strip the ball and prevent a touchdown, but that was quickly followed up with an incredible catch by young wide receiver Michael Floyd, who had a defender draped on his back.
For those who don’t get to see all of the action as it airs live on television, don’t you worry. You can still catch the catch below.

Not even holding and grabbing Floyd’s jersey and interfering with Floyd on the catch attempt could stop him from going up for the grab.
It was about as impressive as a catch as I have seen throughout Week One of the match up.
It is important to note that Carson Palmer threw the pass. With last year’s quarterbacks, this could have very been an incompletion.
