    Very close call but I'd give last year's the edge.

    This season’s. Why? Because he wasn’t out of position before this one.

    The play itself was more impressive last year but the significance of the play is greater this year.

    Last year's was more impressive from a recovery standpoint because he made a mistake first then corrected it. Athletically it was far more impressive, but he made a mistake at the start of the play.

    This years was more of a solid play start to finish and looked smoother. Watching the replay he's not even in frame as it appears it's going to be an easy TD, and then Winfield just pops onto the screen to shock us all.

    This year's. Winfield quickly recognized what was happening and reacted instinctively.

    He wasn’t out of position last year. He was supposed to come up and take the runner, who happened to then throw the ball. Another player was out of position and Winfield made an outstanding play.

    This year's because he wasn't correcting for his own mistake.

    So you are saying Winfield (a safety) was supposed to cover the running back and the linebacker was supposed to cover the tight end, even though Winfield was lined up 2 yards deeper than the linebacker? That wouldn't be a very efficient play call on defense.

    You may want to let AWjr and PJ know this. They have both been pretty clear with what they think so could use some education on the topic from you.

    Tough call but went with 2019 as the better play. As others have pointed out, in 2018 he made a mistake but was enough of a freak athlete to recover and make the play. In 2019 that was just an amazing read to be able to figure out where the ball was going to go, peel off the guy he was covering and go make that play. There are very few safeties that can make a play like that, he made it look easy but the degree of difficulty was really really high.

    2019 was a little more spectacular.

    2019 because it was a lose or win type play. 2018 may have more athletic but it wouldn't have decided the game if he didn't make the play (probably OT).

    Consider who our DC was. It's hard to say, I feel last year's was slightly more impressive, but had they scored, we still would have had a shot in It, this year was for the win

    They were both amazing plays. I went with this year’s because there are very few that would make that play. Yes, there are some with the athletic ability to do it, but very few that have the determination and confidence to even try. He was turned away from the play, more than 10 yards from the receiver and didn’t move on the ball until after it was thrown. I doubt I’ll ever forget either one.
