CLEVELAND — Jarvis Landry is no stranger to making one-handed catches on the football field, and he proved it while paying a visit to the CBS Sports HQ set during his trip to Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII on Sunday morning.
Landry partnered with former Cleveland Browns quarterback Brady Quinn for an attempt at a Guinness World Record for the most one-handed American football catches in one minute.
During the attempt, Quinn appeared to be wearing down toward the end of the rapid-fire drill, but Landry delivered some encouragement, saying, “Keep going. Just throw it. Come on.”
Landry was credited with 48 catches, which bested the old mark by three.
The Guinness World Records official said to Landry after confirming the new standard, “you are officially amazing.”
Landry asked, “Can I get that one time? Can I get that one?”
The official obliged and responded, “you are officially amazing.”
Landry had plenty of amazing moments in his first season with the Browns after being acquired in a trade with the Miami Dolphins last March.
Landry turned his 81 receptions into 976 yards and four touchdowns, rushed for 60 yards and one score on just three attempts and completed one of his two passes for 63 yards. Additionally, Landry completed a two-point conversion pass to quarterback Baker Mayfield in a 21-17 win over the New York Jets at FirstEnergy Stadium in Week 3.
Here is a look back at some memorable moments from “Juice” Landry’s first year in Cleveland.
Landry throws 63-yard pass to set up Browns TD
Landry can do way more than just create separation from a defender and make one-handed catches, as he can throw the ball a little bit, too, and is not afraid to show off his arm strength. And show off Landry did midway through the second quarter against the Cincinnati Bengals at FirstEnergy Stadium on December 23.
The Browns’ second scoring drive of the game covered 70 yards in just three plays in large part because of Landry. On first-and-10 from the Cleveland 30-yard line, Landry took a double-reverse pitch from wide receiver Antonio Callaway and fired a throw to Breshad Perriman for a 63-yard gain.
Landry’s throw moved the Browns from their own 30-yard line to the Cincinnati seven.
Landry caught the pitch while running from right to left across the formation, and then, he slowed to a stop, drew back the ball, found Perriman with a step on a defender and fired the throw to the right side of the field.
The throw travelled 54 yards in the air, and then, Perriman accounted for another nine yards after securing the reception.
51-yard TD catch vs. Panthers
With the Browns facing a third-and-17 from the Cleveland 49-yard line, rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield avoided a rush from the Carolina Panthers and muscled a throw deep down the left side of the field for Landry, and despite two defenders closing on him, the veteran pass catcher hauled in his third receiving score of the season.
Landry started the play on the right side of the formation and ran down the middle of the field until he reached the 20-yard line, and then, he did a hard bank left toward the sideline. Seeing Landry hustling down the field, Mayfield launched the pass, and his receiver high-pointed the ball and maintained possession throughout the play for the touchdown.
