We're counting down the 50 best plays of 2013. Who made it at No. 44? Chad Henne and the first 3,000-yard season for a Jaguars quarterback since 2009.

In the 50 days leading up to the preseason opener against the Buccaneers, we're counting down the 50 best plays of 2013.

Yesterday at No. 45 was Ace Sanders making a 30-yard reception between four Raiders defenders. Who's today at No. 44?

Ace Sanders' 30-yard reception in a crowded Raiders secondary.

Late in the first half of a Week 17 match up against the Colts, the Jaguars were down by two touchdowns. Chad Henne crossed midfield and looked to be narrowing the margin of a game that was slowly getting fairly lopsided.

A seemingly routine dump off to Maurice Jones-Drew got Jacksonville within field goal range. But it also helped Henne become the first 3,000-yard passer for the Jaguars since David Garrard did it in 2009.

And in typical Jaguars fashion, Henne was intercepted on the very next play. Go Jaguars.

Should Henne's 3,000 yards be on the list? Let us know in the comments below!
