Jaguars' David Garrard to Mike Thomas
Nov. 15, 2010

This game looked to be headed for OT. Tied at 24, Jaguars quarterback David Garrard heaved the ball toward the end zone, where Texans cornerback Glover Quin batted it down. Luckily for the Jaguars, the ball fell right into the waiting hands of receiver Mike Thomas, who caught the ricochet, and scored to give the Jaguars a 31-24 victory.

Though Garrard called it "a thank you, Jesus play," it was just one of several amazing Hail Mary finishes in football history. Here are some more.
