Jaguars looking for another big game from 'Mr. London' Allen Hurns vs. Ravens

It has to be among the best in the NFL, too.The fourth-year receiver has made the play of the day in each of his last two games at iconic Wembley Stadium.There was the diving, 31-yard touchdown catch that beat Buffalo 34-31 in 2015 and then a 42-yard catch-and-run that turned out to be the difference in a 30-27 victory against Indianapolis last year.His efforts even earned him the nickname "Mr. "No matter what happens throughout with the organization, if it's the fans or people in house, whatever it is, I never lost that motivation or that confidence in myself."At the end of the end of the day, it is kind of crazy just hearing the talk because you don't know.
