Sutton started his day off with a diving grab for a short gain in the 1st quarter. He had two big receptions later in the 1st quarter as he pulled in a 19 yard gain on a deep post route, then made a leaping catch over a defender in the end zone for a 21 yard touchdown on the very next play.

2019 Week 8 vs IND (6 / 3 / 72 / 0 rec)
