Let’s quarantine together, friends!
We’re gonna be on Twitter tonight with a bunch of our pals tonight watching the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2007 AFC Wildcard.
Hit play on the video below at 8:30pm EST sharp, y’all. (You might want to preload the video a few minutes before so you’re not stuck starting with a 15 second Sprint ad.)
Jacksonville was 11-5 that year and they were just coming off of a Week 17 “bye week” so they were well rested. But because they were in a division with the Indianapolis Colts, an 11-5 record only netted them the No. 5 seed in the AFC.
Pittsburgh, on the other hand, had to scratch and claw their way into the playoffs.
All this set the stage for Maurice Jones-Drew’s 96-yard return, Rashean Mathis’ pick-six, David Garrard’s scramble, Josh Scobee’s game-winning field goal... these are some of the most iconic plays in franchise history. And we’re watching them tonight.
