Jaguars Report Card
PASSING OFFENSE: B -- David Garrard threw for 294 yards and two touchdowns, but he had one costly interception. He had four completions of 25 yards or more.
RUSHING OFFENSE: F --The Jaguars were expected to run the ball against the Colts, but had a season low of 67 yards in 22 carries. Maurice Jones-Drew, playing on an injured knee, had just 46 yards in 15 carries.
PASS DEFENSE: B-minus -- The Jaguars held Peyton Manning to 229 yards passing although one factor was that the Colts' passing game wasn't the same after Austin Collie was injured just before halftime.
RUSH DEFENSE: F -- The Colts came in with the league's worst rushing offense, but shredded the Jaguars for 155 yards on 24 carries. Donald Brown had 129 yards on 14 carries as Peyton Manning often called runs when the Jaguars were playing pass.
SPECIAL TEAMS: B -- Mike Thomas ran a punt back 78 yards for a touchdown and was charged with a muff although the Jaguars felt the Colts should have been called for running into him as he tried a fair catch. K Josh Scobee had a poor onside kick that was returned for a touchdown.
COACHING: F -- Jack Del Rio likes to gamble but was burned going for it on 4th-and-1 from the Jaguars' 39 in the third quarter when the attempt failed. He also didn't appear to have his team ready to play its biggest regular season game in a decade.
