49ers’ George Kittle makes incredible catch to help set up go-ahead touchdown

San Francisco 49ers star George Kittle displayed his epic concentration skills in the third quarter of their NFC divisional round playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.

49ers rookie quarterback Brock Purdy faked a handoff, then fired a pass to the tight end. The ball looked like it was going to leave Kittle’s fingertips, but he managed to angle the ball towards himself and flipped it to catch it, somehow avoiding a big hit from Cowboys defenders.
