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.

Swaim immediately hit the ground and penalty flags were thrown. 

Players on both teams knelt to pray while trainers met with Swaim on the field, including Davis. The helmet-to-helmet contact did not appear to be intentional.

Eventually, Swaim was able to get to his feet and walk off the field, officially leaving the game to be evaluated for a concussion.

The Saints would hold on to their 13-6 lead, securing the team's fourth straight victory.
