Allen Hurns, stud wide receiver for the Jacksonville Jaguars, was incredibly clutch in London in 2015 and he did it again in 2016.
While the “home” games in London for the Jacksonville Jaguars aren’t always a perfectly friendly environment (why do the Indianapolis Colts get to have an end zone?) and the Jags haven’t always delivered, wide receiver Allen Hurns is turning Wembley Stadium into his house.
Against the Buffalo Bills in 2015, the Jags tossed a long pass to Hurns which he laid out to grab and get the TD.
It’s the kind of catch that is career defining. 31 yards and the game was in the bag with 2:16 left to play.
Hurns did it again in Week 4 against the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts were catching up (every Jags fan is nervous with just a 10-point lead) and the Jags desperately needed someone to step up and make a play.
Cue Allen Hurns in his house again.
Hurns has always been a bit of a clutch wide receiver, but his ability to make four defenders miss with a brilliant cut and run is downright ridiculous.
That score was enough to keep the Jags (barely) ahead of the Colts for the rest of the game. Final score 30-27 and the Jags should be crowning Hurns the King of London (or some equivalent, can he be knighted?).
Hurns stepped up when the Jags needed someone to. It was a clutch play in a critical moment while the rest of the team was self-destructing.
