"Air Davis" took the NFL by storm with his hurdling act against the St. Louis Rams.
On Sunday, the 49ers tight end displayed his speed, hands and toughness a single play.
Davis out-ran Tampa Bay safety Mark Barron and caught a 52-yard touchdown that was rifled down the field by
Davis gracefully snagged the deep ball thrown with velocity and wasn't done impressing. The 49ers tight end had so much momentum going into the end zone that he crashed into a padded wall at Raymond James Stadium. Davis was knocked down for a slight moment but bounced back to compete in the second half.
