The Jacksonville Jaguars had just fired head coach Gus Bradley after four long seasons of a national nightmare. They were coming into the game with nine straight losses. It wasn’t looking good for the home finale.
And then the Jaguars happened.
This team dominated the Tennessee Titans by a score of 38-17. It was a day highlighted by Marqise Lee throwing, Blake Bortles catching, and Jalen Ramsey making a great play on the ball for his first career NFL touchdown.
With Marcus Mariota out, backup quarterback Matt Cassel was in the game. He threw a weak ball to the right sideline and Ramsey made a break on the ball, caught it, and sprinted to the end zone.
We didn’t have much to cheer about in 2016. But this pick-six interception from the best player on our defense (and likely the team) gives us a lot to hope for in 2017.
Go Jaguars. Go Jaguars forever.
