Plays that shaped a season: No. 6
By Pat McManamon
The Play: Cecil Shorts catches a game-winning touchdown for Jacksonville with 40 seconds left.
The situation: Third-and-8 and trailing by three, the Jaguars tried a double-move on Joe Haden, the Browns' best defender.
The reason it mattered: Haden jumped the slant for reasons not even he could explain. “What was I thinking?” he asked. That loss to a poor Jacksonville team was one of the season’s worst, and led to an emotional outburst from Haden in the locker room. It was the beginning of the end of the Browns, as they wound up in a slide they could not escape.
