is making believers across the NFL with his weekly highlight catches for the Buffalo Bills. Watkins had seven catches for 87 yards in last week's win against the Detroit Lions.

New England's head football coach Bill Belichick had high praise for the young wide receiver at his weekly press conference.

“He's big, fast, very athletic, excellent hands,” Belichick said to the media. “The catch that he had at the end of the game against Detroit was Larry Fitzgerald-like. He's a tough guy to miss throwing the ball. He has a great catch radius. Long arms, good hands, strong hands. He’s pretty good.”

For the season so far, Watkins has 24 catches for 284 yards and two touchdowns.
