NFL Play Of The Year Comes With Call Of The Year Thanks To Gus Johnson (Video)
With only three seconds left on the clock in a 24-24 tie game between the Houston Texans and the Jacksonville Jaguars, it appeared as though these two teams were headed to overtime. However, the Jags still had one more prayer left in them. That prayer was a Hail Mary attempt into the end zone by David Garrard, which was batted down by the Texans’ Glover Quin, and into the hands of Jaguars’ wide receiver Mike Thomas for what may very well be the play of the year and the wildest finish from the 2010 NFL season.
And who better to make the call on such a play than the always exuberant Gus Johnson. Here is a look at the play that everyone will be talking about for a while.
P.S. We should also note that the Jaguars were handed a penalty following this touchdown for excessive celebration. How do they expect a team to celebrate a game winning Hail Mary conversion?
