Jacksonville Jaguars top 25 plays of 2014: Bortles' fourth-down conversion

We're counting down the 25 best plays of 2014. Who made it to No. 23? Blake Bortles standing in the pocket and delivering a fourth-down conversion to Cecil Shorts against the Texans.

Going into Week 17, the Jacksonville Jaguars were tired. They were 3-12, had nothing much to play for, and were facing a Houston Texans team that had a chance at clinching a playoff spot with a win.

But a stout defense, and a last-gasp effort by the offense, almost forced an upset.

With 2:51 left to play the Jaguars were down 21-17 and marching down the field. After three straight incompletions, Blake Bortles faced a fourth-and-10 at midfield, and delivered this strike over the middle of the field to Cecil Shorts III.

Does Bortles' fourth-down conversion to Shorts deserve to be in the Top 25 for 2014? Let us know in the comments below!
