Jaguars Report Card
PASSING OFFENSE: D-plus - David Garrard had a solid first half when they took a 17-6 lead but he threw behind Mike Sims-Walker on the first play of the second half and it was intercepted and started the Giants' comeback. He finished with a 57.1 passer rating.
RUSHING OFFENSE: B-plus - The Jaguars rushed for 207 yards against one of the league's top rushing defenses. Maurice Jones-Drew led the way with 113 yards.
PASS DEFENSE: D - The Jaguars held the Giants to two field goals in the first round but Eli Manning wound up with two touchdown passes and a 117.7 passer rating. The secondary didn't cover well, they didn't get a sack and missed tackles in the secondary.
RUSH DEFENSE: C-minus - The Giants gashed the run defense at times as they had 135 yards in 26 carries with Brandon Jacobs getting 87 in 14 carries.
SPECIAL TEAMS: B - Josh Scobee kicked a 42-yard field goal and Adam Podlesh dropped two inside the 20 and the coverage teams were solid although Deji Karim averaged only 22.2 yards a return.
COACHING: B minus - The Jaguars had a good game plan to run to keep the Giants' pass rushers off balance but in the last drive they got away from the balance, passed for 10 plays in a row and David Garrard was sacked on their final three offensive plays and fumbled.
