The first half of Sunday afternoon’s Cardinals-Jaguars game ended with a bang, to say the least.
With two seconds remaining in the second quarter, Arizona sent out kicker Matt Prater to attempt a 68-yard field goal. It certainly wasn’t a ridiculous decision by the Cards, as Prater just last week drilled a 62-yarder.
Prater’s boot at TIAA Bank Field had the accuracy but not enough leg. Jacksonville cornerback Jamal Agnew caught the missed kick in the back of the end zone, received a few blocks, broke a tackle and ultimately returned it 109 yards to pay dirt. The unlikely touchdown sent Jags fans into an absolute frenzy.
Agnew travelled as far as one can on a single NFL play. His sprint from end zone to end zone matched the record for the longest play in league history.
