Sen’Derrick Marks Gets A Big Sack Of Cash
Thursday Night Football's game between the sad Jacksonville Jaguars and the awful Tennessee Titans - with four wins between them - was a paradox: a horrible matchup that turned out to be a good game. At stake was 2015's first draft pick, with the loser staying in the running (not the passing) with Tampa Bay.
So with the Titans down, 21-13, QB Charlie Whitehurst drove his team to Jacksonville's 35 yard line with less than ten seconds left. Since Jacksonville's whole secondary was parked in the end zone, it could only muster a three-man rush. But that's all it needed as Sen'Derrick Marks drove in and took Whitehurst down as the clock ran out. The sack caused Sen'Derrick to react like this:

Turns out Marks had a bonus clause that got triggered by half of that sack, netting him $600K. And hence, the money pose. So on one play he won the game, got to hit someone, and pocketed over half a million dollars. Perhaps it will help him forget he plays for Jacksonville.
