NFL Chargers Chargers v Broncos Broncos American Football

Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams is known for making spectacular catches. Normally, though, he's doing it for the Los Angeles offense.

Williams' latest leaping grab sealed the Chargers' 19-16 win over the Broncos in Week 16 in the form of an interception. Denver was lined up to throw a Hail Mary pass, so Williams was inserted to line up along the goal line and use his athleticism to seal the win. When Drew Lock chucked the ball down the field, Williams was waiting.

Many of Williams' NFL highlights feature catches like Sunday's, just from Justin Herbert instead of from the opposing quarterback. He made a one-handed touchdown grab in Week 8. He made a superb catch along the sideline in overtime in Week 5. Even in Week 16, Williams had made four catches for 54 yards prior to the final play.

According to Football Reference, Williams hadn't made a tackle or defensed any pass prior to Sunday's game. Their snap database doesn't show Williams having played a defensive snap in his NFL career. But with Denver at the 50-yard line and a pass to the end zone the likely play with a second remaining, Williams took the field and added an interception to his 38 receptions and four touchdowns he's already compiled in 2020.

Williams joined a group of seven other players, including his teammate Keenan Allen, who've had 50-plus receiving yards and an interception in the same game with 1950 (stat courtesy of Yahoo Sports' Eric Edholm):

    Sunday was apparently a big day for receivers having o

    dd involvement in interceptions. Williams' play was of the positive variety, but for Kansas City, Sammy Watkins threw a pick while targeting Patrick Mahomes on a trick play.
