The Jacksonville Jaguars needed some help against the New York Jets. Thanks to a poorly executed play from the Jets and a heads up play from Myles Jack, they got it.
Leading 20-10, the Jets were in scoring position and tried the always risky lateral pass. When Bilal Powell couldn’t handle the throw from Josh McCown, Jack was there for the recovery and took it to the house.

Certainly, if you’re going to overcome a 10-point deficit in the fourth quarter, these are the kind of plays that you need. We’d also encourage any offensive coordinators thinking of dialing up a similar play to this one to watch what happened here. Throwing the ball forward is your friend.
