This Slow-Motion Video Of Tua Tagovailoa's TD Pass Is Incredible

You need to watch this slow-motion video of the epic touchdown pass.

It's been more than a week since that epic Alabama-Georgia College Football Playoff national title game. It's time to revisit it.

Thankfully, we have a great way to look back on what happened. An incredible slow-motion video of the final play of the game has been tweeted out.

Let's set the scene.

Alabama is trailing Georgia, 23-20, in overtime. The Bulldogs got the ball first and scored on a 51-yard field goal. The Crimson Tide need a field goal to stay alive, or a touchdown to win it.

The first play of Alabama's series goes horribly. Tua Tagovailoa, who replaced Jalen Hurts at halftime, took a terrible 16-yard sack on first down. The Crimson Tide are now out of field goal range at Georgia's 41-yard line.

Then, it happened before you could blink. Tagovailoa dropped back on second down, looked off the safety, and fired a deep ball down the left sideline. DeVonta Smith caught the ball in stride and galloped into the end zone.

Alabama wins, 26-23. Nick Saban has his fifth national title in nine seasons.

Now, let's watch the video.

The video comes from TA Films, a Charlotte-based media company that was clearly in great position for that final play. The best part of the video is how you can really see Tua looking off the safety to make sure he has a window to throw the deep ball. One second, he's not even looking down the left sideline. The next, he's firing a pass down the field. You can follow TA Films for more awesome videos
