With the entire season yet to be played, it’s going to be tough to top that one.
VERNON DAVIS JUST MADE WHAT MIGHT STAND UP AS THE HIGHLIGHT CATCH/RUN OF THE SEASON, HURDLING EAGLES, BREAKING AWAY FOR A TD AT EAGLES.

What made it even more heartfelt was the emotion Davis showed after scoring due to his grandfather passing away on Saturday.
