Report Card: Jaguars vs. Colts

STRATEGY AND PERSONNEL - JAGUARS REPORT CARD VS. COLTS

PASSING OFFENSE: A minus
David Garrard had another outstanding day as he passed for 257 yards and three touchdowns although he did throw his first interception of the year, ending his streak of 230 passes without an interception.

RUSHING OFFENSE: A
Fred Taylor rushed for 104 yards for the second game in a row to boost his total to 812 for the season. Maurice Jones-Drew chipped in with 52 yards so they combined for 156 yards on 25 carries.

PASS DEFENSE: F
Peyton Manning carved them up as he passed for 288 yards and four touchdowns. The Jaguars couldn't put heat on him unless they blitzed and when he had time to throw, they had problems covering.

RUSH DEFENSE: B
They held Joseph Addai to 67 yards on 21 carries, but the Colts were putting most of their emphasis on the passing game.

SPECIAL TEAMS: C
Josh Scobee, who made a 46-yard field goal, missed a 47-yarder that cost them. Punting wasn't a factor in the game as the Jaguars didn't punt and the Colts punted only twice.

COACHING: C
Offensive coordinator Dick Koetter had a solid game plan, but the Jaguars continued to display the undisciplined play that has been the hallmark of the Jack Del Rio regime. A personal-foul penalty on Reggie Williams for shoving a defender in the end zone after a play probably cost them a touchdown and was typical of a team that doesn't play smart.
