Blake Bortles threw the craziest interception of the year

Blake Bortles hasn't exactly had the best of times so far in the 2016 NFL regular season, with his play seemingly regressed from his first two years in the league. 

The Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback has faced calls from fans for him to be benched and has been derided in a season where he has thrown 10 interceptions to 14 touchdowns and is below 60% completion.

Bortles and the Jaguars are taking on the Houston Texans today in Florida and the former UCF star didn't get off to a good start, throwing two interceptions, including one of the most bizarre INTs we've seen in years. Scroll down to see it.

When the Houston Texans sniffed out a screen, Bortles made the right decision to throw the ball at the feet of T.J. Yeldon and kill the play.

Unfortunately for Bortles, he threw the ball directly off Yeldon’s right foot, sending it straight into the arms of Texans linebacker Whitney Mercilus.

That is incredible and something we genuinely can't recall ever seeing. And of course it had to happen to the embattled Bortles, who cannot catch a break at all in Jacksonville right now. Even the bounces go badly for him.
