Rams receiver Danny Amendola hauls in amazing one-armed grab (video)

During the St. Louis Rams’ opening drive in their Thursday night tilt with the division rival Arizona Cardinals, quarterback Sam Bradford let a bomb go down the left side of the field outside the numbers as he was about to get crushed by the Arizona pass rush. Running underneath the pass was wide receiver Danny Amendola, who, despite being mauled by Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, hauled in the pass, cradling the football in the crook of his left arm and maintaining possession for a dynamic, contorting 44-yard completion.

Peterson was flagged on the play for pass interference. Looks like no matter how hard Peterson tried to disrupt the play, Amendola refused to be denied the reception on this play.
