His 8.5 sack of the season (second most among defensive tackles) came against the team who drafted him in the second round in 2009. The 27-year-old has been the best playmaker on a Jags front that has improved during the season and helps give Jacksonville hope that its residence in the NFL pit of despair will soon end.
After the play, teammates piled on Marks.
"No, that wasn't fun," he said. "I was under the crowd. I didn't know they were going to do that 'til it happened.
"It was pretty awesome. Just the excitement of all the guys. Everybody's excited about somebody else accomplishing something for them. It just shows the character of our team and the guys that we have. Nobody gets that check but me, but everybody's excited for me."
