Commenting on it, Vikings head coach Kevin O'Connell said, as quoted by FanNation, "It happened right in front of me. One of the more remarkable catches I've ever seen. He's such a special, special player. To show up time and time again when we needed him today, really lucky to have Justin and the plays he made today." While Patrick Peterson, cornerback for the Vikings, stressed on the one-handed grab. He said, "When he caught it, I saw him reach back and it had a little bit of Odell [Beckham Jr] back in 2014 or whenever he made that crazy catch. Justin did a great job of maintaining possession of the ball. What a great fourth-down play. Big-time players making big-time plays throughout the entire game."
