Bengals rookie receiver Ja'Marr Chase had a remarkable 46-yard catch from quarterback Joe Burrow to the Rams' 11 late in the first quarter of Super Bowl 56 to set up Cincinnati's first score of the game – a 29-field goal by Evan McPherson.

Chase was defended by the Rams' Jalen Ramsey on the play.

"I have to say - Ja'Marr Chase is one of the great catchers of the football in contested, wrestling, one-handed situations in the Super Bowl," NBC color analyst Cris Collinsworth said.

"He is one of the best finishers of catches I think I've ever seen in my lifetime. So many times this year. Going against Ramsey and making a play like that, wow!"

Last week, Collinsworth said Chase is "in my estimation, is already the best receiver that I've ever seen play with a Cincinnati Bengals uniform on."
