Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Williams played catch with his mother growing up, but since she wasn't particularly accurate, Williams was often leaping to make catches. "Before I even knew how to run a route, I knew how to go up and get the ball," he said.
Williams' leaping ability paid off last week, as he jumped up and snatched the ball away from a Chiefs defensive back and then raced to the end zone. That long touchdown reception gave the Buccaneers a 7-0 lead, and they would go on to win the game, 38-10.
Williams has 15 receptions for 332 yards and three touchdowns this season; he has eclipsed the 100-yard receiving mark in each of the Bucs' last two games. The third-year pro is coming of a 2011 season in which he caught 65 passes for 771 yards and three touchdowns.
