Last Updated: 31/12/17 8:23pm
Julian Edelman's Super Bowl grab voted the best NFL catch of 2017!
As the year comes to an end, we have taken time to reflect on some of the more spectacular catches of the calendar year in the NFL - one-handed efforts, helmet catches, ones off the back and toe-tap sideline grabs.
The best of the best NFL receivers feature in our top 10; Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr, DeAndre Hopkins and a double-whammy from Antonio Brown.
Click on the video above to watch our top 10 2017 catches, before then seeing who you voted as your favourite below...
A) JARED COOK - 2016-17 Divisional Round, Packers @ Cowboys
Now with the Raiders, then-Packers tight end Cook played a big part in getting Green Bay to last year's NFC Championship game with this spectacular sideline grab. With under 20 seconds left, on third down, Aaron Rodgers picked out Cook downfield, who somehow kept both feet in bounds with his diving effort. It gave the Packers a 51-yard field-goal attempt with three seconds on the clock for the win.
B) JULIO JONES - Super Bowl LI, Patriots v Falcons
At one stage this looked like the catch of the Super Bowl, with Jones hauling in a clutch grab on the sidelines for the Falcons, somehow staying in bounds as he received the ball while almost horizontal.
C) JULIAN EDELMAN - Super Bowl LI, Patriots v Falcons
Edelman's stunning Super Bowl catch of his own rivalled Jones' effort. With the Patriots still trailing by eight with less than three minutes left, Edelman somehow wrestled the ball in despite it initially looking like it fell incomplete under pressure from Falcons safety Keanu Neal and cornerback Robert Alford. But, replays showed Edelman was actually able to catch the ball off Alford's leg before it hit the ground.
D) COLE BEASLEY - Week One, Giants @ Cowboys
Odell Beckham Jr was sidelined for New York's 2017 season-opening prime-time game against Dallas, but he would have appreciated Beasley's stunning one-handed behind-the-back grab.
E) ODELL BECKHAM JR - Week Three, Giants @ Eagles
OBJ was back up to his old tricks for the Giants in Week Three - having earlier become the fastest player in NFL history to 300 career receptions, he then celebrated by pulling off one of his trademark one-handed grabs for a second TD of the game.
F) MARVIN JONES - Week Six, Lions @ Saints
Lions receiver Jones hauled in this incredible one-handed catch for a TD during their crazy 52-38 shootout loss to the Saints. His leaping effort in the back-right of the endzone helped bring Detroit back into the contest, before they ultimately fell short.
G) MAURICE HARRIS - Week 10, Vikings @ Redskins
Redskins receiver Harris' turn to show his circus-catching skills as he hauled in this 36-yard pass from Kirk Cousins for a touchdown. Under pressure from the covering Vikings defender, and dangerously close to going out of bounds, Harris somehow still manages to claw in the catch one-handed and get into the endzone for the score.
H) ANTONIO BROWN - Week 11, Titans @ Steelers
'Somewhere, David Tyree is smiling'. Pittsburgh wide receiver Brown did his best Tyree impression as he pulled off this spectacular catch for a touchdown off his helmet on Thursday night football.
I) ANTONIO BROWN - Week 12, Packers @ Steelers
Another week in the NFL, and another amazing Antonio catch! It was his feet that did the work this time as he pulled off this crazy catch on the sidelines, managing to drag his feet in bounds while still clinging on to an incredible diving grab.
J) DEANDRE HOPKINS - Week 16, Steelers @ Texans
Hopkins underlined his credentials as one of the top wide receivers in the NFL with a spectacular one-handed catch for a Houston TD, somehow managing to tap the ball into the air with one hand and as it looped over Steelers cornerback Joe Haden and then hauling the ball in with his other hand, all the while keeping both feet in bounds in the end zone.
