The Jag’s 2011 game against the Houston Texans would prove to be an important career day for wide receiver Mike Thomas. The score was tied up 24-24 with 3 seconds left on the clock when Jag’s QB David Garrard heaved the ball from the 50 yard line towards the end zone. Houston’s defensive back Glover Quin attempted to swat the ball away from the Jag’s intended target, tight end Marcedes Lewis. Quin did successfully swat the ball—right into the hands of Jag’s wide receiver Mike Thomas. Thomas caught the pass at the one yard line and stepped into the end zone—giving the Jags a 31-24 victory over the Texans.
