3. Opening Touchdown in Super Bowl 42
Cruz added to his legend in Super Bowl 42, catching the games opening touchdown to give the Giants a 9-0 lead. The catch was pretty routine, but the throw from Eli Manning was out of this world, fitting it in an extraordinarily tight window — not the first tight window he’d find in that game (shoutout Mario Manningham). Regardless, Cruz got to salsa in the Super Bowl, which warrants a top three spot.
