Of course it looks like Cruz should have had it on slow-mo -i.e. why didn't he just keep going back? but there is nothing harder to catch/judge than a pill to opposite field. Then throw in the windy conditions that night with the swirling pixie dust. It would have been a hell of a play and a major surprise if he catches that ball.
All that plus the ball also had a pretty wicked slice on it, so it was moving not only back but away from him to his left at the same time. Would've been one helluva catch - especially considering that it would've ended things.
