Play No. 3: Game-saving interception
Situation: Third-and-10 from the Jacksonville 41-yard line.
Score: Jaguars lead 13-6.
Time: 45 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.
DiRocco’s take: Defensive end Ryan Davis was playing in just his second game of the season but he delivered one of the biggest plays. It was partly a right-place, right-time situation, but Davis did come up with an interception that sealed the Jaguars' second victory of the season against the Texans in Houston. Texans receiver Keshawn Martin bobbled a pass from quarterback Case Keenum and Davis made a diving one-handed catch while using his other arm to shield Martin from the ball.
Season impact: Davis was on the field at that point in the game because coach Gus Bradley left Jeremy Mincey back in Jacksonville as punishment for being late to a team meeting. Davis had been on the practice squad until being signed to the active roster for the previous week’s game against Arizona. Davis ended up being a much better option for the Jaguars than Mincey, whom Bradley cut three weeks later after he was late again. Mincey had 14 tackles, two sacks, and three quarterback pressures in eight games. Davis had four tackles, one sack and six quarterback pressures in seven games. That’s basically the same production for much less money.
