59 yard kick good to put Jaguars over Colts.

In the last seconds of the game left the Jacksonville Jaguars kicker Josh Scobee, probably their best offensive player, made a 59 yarder to beat the Indianapolis Colts, defending AFC champions, 31-28.

Every time the Colts and Jaguars face each other it's a good game. I think it's the only time the Jaguars put on a good show when it's the Colts. I actually attended the game against them last season in Jacksonville, it was a thriller and it was great as a Peyton Manning fan not a Jag or Colt fan.

Peyton Manning went 33/46 for 352 yards and 2 touchdowns. Peyton threw his first interception of the season, one that shouldn't of been intercepted. Peyton's passer rating was 99.2. The Colts only had 1 player go for positive yards in the running game, Joseph Addai he carried the ball 16 times for 63 yards and 2 touchdowns.  This is a huge shocker, not, Reggie Wayne had the most catches and recieving yards, but no touchdowns while Dallas Clark and Austin Collie both had 1 touchdown. Reggie Wayne more than doubled the second highest reciever in catches and yards. Wayne had 15 catches for 196 yards, Dallas Clark had 7 catches for 68 yards, and Austin Collie had 5 catches for 39 yards. The Colts defense recorded no sacks and only 1 quarterback hits, I have no idea what that really means it's in the box score though... Colts defense had no impact at all.

David Garrard went 17/22 for 163 yards, 2 passing touchdowns, and 1 rushing touchdown. As usual the Jaguars over used Maurice Jones-Drew. Jones-Drew definitely injury proned with the amount of carries he gets and he was even limping around. Jones-Drew had 26 carries for 105 yards, 1 touchdown rushing, and 1 touchdown recieving. The Jaguars recieving yards looks very unimpressive. Mike Thomas had 5 catches for 68 yards, Tiquan Underwood had 3 catches for 41 yards, and Marcedes Lewis had 2 catches for 22 yards and 1 touchdown. The Jaguar defense also couldn't stop Peyton Manning and the Colts for running up and down the field. They recorded 1 sack on Peyton and 2 quarterback hits. They forced two fumbles but only won one of them, from Reggie Wayne.

This game was different than last seasons game in Jacksonville. The Jaguars had the majority of time of possession but this game it was pretty much equal with the Jags having the ball for 29 minutes and 46 seconds and the Colts 30 minutes and 14 seconds. The game win was going to go to who ever had the ball last, which was the Jaguars and won by the amazing 59 yard kick by Josh Scobee. If this was a game with an MVP award he'd definitely get it. Jaguars will still not make it to playoffs while Colts will make it.
