Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Geoff Swaim suffered a scary helmet-to-helmet hit from New Orleans Saints linebacker Demario Davis.
With 11 minutes left in the fourth quarter and the Saints holding a 13-6 lead, Swaim caught a short pass crossing the middle the field from quarterback Gardner Minshew. Swaim’s eyes were looking the other way, allowing Davis to get a jump on him, and leading to a brutal collision between the two players.
