Blake Bortles didn't have the worst of NFL debuts when Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley put him in at halftime of the Week 3 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.

In fact, Bortles showed a lot of promise in this game. With offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch giving Bortles the most free reign of any week in 2014, Bortles was able to consistently move the Jaguars downfield throughout the second half. It even allowed Bortles the confidence to try something risky -- a fake-spike near the goal-line.

Does Bortles' fake spike and throw to Shorts deserve to be in the Top 25 for 2014? Let us know in the comments below!
