Poll: What To Name Jacoby’s Touchdown?

Posted Jan 15, 2013

Jacoby Jones' 70-yard, game-tying touchdown will forever live in Ravens’ lore.


The Ravens have had two plays this season that will forever be etched in team history.

First there was “Hey Diddle Diddle, Ray Rice Up The Middle” in San Diego.

Now there’s the Joe Flacco to Jacoby Jones 70-yard touchdown in the divisional playoff win in Denver.

Flacco’s throw (on the move and off his front foot) traveled 55 yards and tied the game with 31 seconds left in regulation. Jones slowed down midway through his route, then accelerated past leaping safety Rahim Moore.

But what’s the play’s name?

There have been a few ideas tossed around since Saturday, but nothing has been cemented. A couple days after Rice’s miraculous 4th-and-29 catch and run, there were already T-shirts.

Rice named his play himself immediately afterwards. Neither Flacco nor Jones did the same with theirs.

Flacco simply said, “It was crazy.”

Jones harkened a short Victorian poem by the English poet William Ernest Henley called “Invictus.”

“It means unconquerable souls,” Jones said.

Here’s a link to the full poem.
