Take a look at the game saving catch. This is what former Atlanta Falcons running back Jamal Anderson had to tweet. — Jamal Anderson (@jamthedirtybird) July 23, 2013   This defensive play by Jason Heyward has to rank up there with the Carlos Gomez game saving catch against Joey Votto a few weeks ago.  Atlanta holds on to win 3-2.
