Hide your kids, hide your wife, because the Jacksonville Jaguars are awake and they’re intercepting everything out there. In what could be developing as one of the stories of the year, the Jacksonville Jaguars enter halftime trailing the Denver Broncos by just two points.
Entering the game, no one was giving the Jaguars a chance to pull off the win or even stay within four touchdowns, but they have been able to play a very tough team and make things interesting at the midway point in the game.
The biggest play for Jacksonville came near the end of the first-half, when linebacker Paul Posluszny was able to drop back in coverage without Peyton Manning spotting him and pick off the pass.
Posluszny returned the interception 59-yards to pay dirt to bring the Jaguars within two. Jacksonville did go for the two-point conversion, but they were unable to draw even and trail with 30 minutes left in the game.
Here is a GIF of Posluszny’s pick-six, via Cork Gaines on Twitter:
If you would have said before the half that Chad Henne would have more passing yards than Peyton Manning at the half, you would have been laughed at. However, now you would look like a genius.
