Jags turn to quick-hitter called 'slider' to end epic slide

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) The Jacksonville Jaguars call it "Slider," a somewhat fitting name for the play that helped end the NFL's longest skid in more than four decades.

Coach Urban Meyer and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell switched to the quick-hitting route after Miami called a timeout with 5 seconds remaining in a tie game Sunday in London.

The Jaguars had planned to have Trevor Lawrence throw a "Hail Mary" into the end zone on fourth-and-8 from the Miami 44 and hope for the best. But they realized the Dolphins were playing deep and decided to take a chance at picking up 8 yards quickly enough that they could call a timeout and still have a second remaining to attempt a winning field goal.
