Top 25 Jacksonville Jaguars plays of 2016: Arrelious Benn game-winning touchdown vs. Bears

In at No. 4 is Arrelious Benn and a touchdown you have to see to believe -- that won the game against the Chicago Bears!

Sometimes, the Jacksonville Jaguars will do something so inexplicable, so unbelievable (good or bad) that you have to see it to believe it.

Arrelious Benn’s game-winning touchdown against the Chicago Bears was one such moment in 2016.

In the Jaguars’ Week 6 victory over the Bears, Benn caught the game-winning 51-yard score with 2:58 remaining in the fourth quarter. It marked Benn’s first touchdown since December 24, 2011 (1,819 days), when he was a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The 1,819 days between touchdown catches is the longest span between touchdowns for a receiver since Kassim Osgood went 2,100 days between scores from December 12, 2004 to September 12, 2010.

In his 52-game NFL career, Benn has caught 64 passes for 978 yards (15.3 average) and six touchdowns. Last year alone, Benn played in 15 games and had five catches for 116 yards and one touchdown.

But this catch was definitely his most memorable of the entire season.
