Watch: George Kittle's Epic Juggling Catch Against the Cowboys

How did he manage to catch that ball??

In a dramatic fourth-quarter showdown against the Dallas Cowboys at Levi's Stadium, San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle made a jaw-dropping catch that sent fans and commentators alike into a frenzy. Kittle bobbled the ball five times off his helmet and hands before hauling in a 30-yard gain that sparked a game-winning drive for the Niners. Kittle later drew a pass interference penalty in the end zone on the same drive, setting up a two-yard touchdown run from running back Christian McCaffrey that gave San Francisco the lead, which they would never relinquish.

After the game, Kittle joked that he wanted to make the catch as dramatic as possible, and his 95 receiving yards on five catches and five targets were a testament to his clutch performance. The 49ers' star tight end was like a football magnet, making impossible catches look routine. And if you want to see the play for yourself, the NFL TikTok has got you covered. They've got a clip of the catch that'll have you rewinding and re-watching on repeat. It's just one of the many highlights from a thrilling matchup that ended with the 49ers punching their ticket to the NFC Championship game.
