Steve Sanders comments: "It's in a short-yardage situation. We were in the red zone, and it's always a challenge to get the actual catches, especially when the distance is short. This is Harris' first touchdown, so you know you're not always keying in on him in the offense. As he came across the middle, he high-pointed the ball.

"It was a perfect throw from Alex Smith over the linebacker and Demetrius was able to make a great catch for his first NFL touchdown. We added a little bit of contrast and detail to the photo, but it was straight out of the camera like that.

"When the quarterback releases the ball, there are so many possible targets that he can go to and just to be able to be in the right spot to get that right receiver that's open, to get that picture, it just takes a little bit of practice and skill and as the season goes on, you're idea of what's happening on the field makes it easier to achieve that."
