Tipped Hail Mary allows Jaguars to escape with victory over Texans
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The play is called "Rebound," and Mike Thomas always serves as "the scoop guy."The Jacksonville Jaguars never actually run it during practice. David Garrard always fakes the deep throw and teammates act out the results.It never turns out like this.
