It’s only Week 1, but San Francisco 49ers defensive back Jaquiski Tartt pulled off one of the best interceptions you will see all year. And no, this is not hyperbole.
Tartt made up a ton of ground to chase down Carolina Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, before he leaped up with one arm and channeled his inner Odell Beckham to come down with an insane one-handed interception to save a touchdown.
Check out the incredible play below:

Defensive backs aren’t supposed to make catches like that. But Tartt did, and now he instantly becomes one of the 49ers fan base’s favorite defensive backs on the roster.
The 49ers currently trail Carolina, 7-0, with less than five minutes remaining in the first half.
