Josh Scobee- What other word can you use to describe the Jaguars kicker other than astounding? Scobee set a franchise record with his 59-yard game-winning field goal and remains a perfect 5-5 on the season.

Maurice Jones-Drew- The Jaguars dynamite running back ended his scoring drought as he scored a pair of touchdowns. Jones-Drew ran for 105 yards on 26 carries.

Offensive line- The Jaguars offensive line played a near-perfect game as they allowed no sacks and were able to run the football against eight men in the box. The team was one-dimensional on offense and the offensive line still were able to dominate.

Gerald Alexander- Playing in his first game this season after being a victim of the team's final cuts, Alexander made two enormous plays. He first knocked the ball out of tight end Brody Eldridge's hands, causing an Anthony Smith interception, and then scooped a fumble and returned it into Colts territory, leading to a Jaguars touchdown.

Anthony Smith- Smith returned to the lineup after being injured for the last two games and paid immediate dividends. Smith recorded six tackles, defended one pass and handed Peyton Manning his first interception of the season.

David Jones- The trade in which Reggie Nelson was shipped to Cincinnati for cornerback David Jones keeps looking better and better. Jones gave up some big plays on Sunday but he also led the team with 11 tackles and two pass defenses. Jones forced a Reggie Wayne fumble which preserved a Jaguars lead.

Marcedes Lewis- Even if few around the nation realize, Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis is turning into a star. Lewis dominated as a blocker and caught a 15-yard touchdown pass as he boxed out two defenders.

David Garrard- Garrard had a limited playbook and executed it to perfection. Garrard avoided the big mistake that has plagued him the last two weeks and managed the game. For that he gets a game ball.

Tiquan Underwood- Tiquan Underwood didn't make a ton of plays, but on the game winning drive he produced. Underwood was a hero as he prevented a potential game ending interception on the Jaguars final drive.
