We learned two important things in the first half of Thursday night's game between the Jaguars and Texans: Marcedes Lewis is still in the NFL and Texans linebacker Darryl Sharpton can't cover him. Actually Sharpton can cover him, it's the 'turning around and knocking the ball down' part he seems to have trouble with. 

On the final play of the first quarter, Jaguars quarterback Chad Henne threw a laser downfield for Lewis, who was covered by two Houston defenders, including Sharpton. As you can see below, the double-coverage didn't faze Lewis, who reached behind Sharpton and caught the ball for a 41-yard gain. 

Not only did Lewis make this unbelievable catch, but he also had a 1-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter.
