Not much (read: nothing) has gone right for the Eagles so far this season, but one highlight will stand out in a year full of lowlights.

Locked in a scoreless game against the Buccaneers in the second quarter Sunday and facing a 3rd-and-17, Nick Foles overthrew Avant, who was cutting toward the left sideline. No matter; Avant, pedaling backward, twisted his body and fully extended for a one-handed catch, securing possession and landing inbounds.

The result? Twenty yards and a first down for the Eagles, putting them in Buccaneers territory. Five players later, Alex Henery kicked a 28-yarder to put the Eagles up 3-0.

But is this even the greatest catch in Avant's life? You be the judge, after checking out this one-handed touchdown catch he made against Northwestern while at Michigan.
