The NY Jets may have lost their starting quarterback, but star wide receiver Garrett Wilson is looking to make up for it. Wilson just made the catch of the year. It may only be Week 1, but it's going to be hard to top this.

With just under 5:00 remaining in the fourth quarter, Zach Wilson fired a strike to Garrett Wilson, who was running a fade route, in the corner of the end zone. Wilson's pass was off-target, but it didn't matter.

Just watch this ridiculous one-handed catch by Wilson as he taps the ball to himself and helps tie the game at 13.

NY Jets wide receiver Garrett Wilson is unreal

The Jets have played hard even in the absence of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Their defense has forced four turnovers from Josh Allen, and the likes of Breece Hall and Garrett Wilson have kept the offense afloat.

Wilson, the 2022 Offensive Rookie of the Year last season, is coming off an outstanding rookie campaign that saw him finish with 83 catches for 1,103 yards and three touchdowns. More plays like this will certainly help him establish himself as one of the NFL's premier wide receivers.

The Jets have a special, special wide receiver in Garrett Wilson. This catch is just the latest in his increasingly long catalog of highlight-reel plays.
