A special win for the Jaguars

When Jacksonville PK Josh Scobee’s 59-yard field goal barely sailed over the cross-bar as time expired and into the Jaguars mascots arms, the jubilation could begin. Scobee yanked off his helmet and ran screaming around the field.

"I've never been that excited to hit a field goal in my life,” Scobee told reporters after the game, including Rapid Reporter Jim Nasella.

You can forgive his excitement. For a team that has faced much adversity this season – tepid fan support, a coach in Jack Del Rio whose backside was beginning to feel rather warm, a QB situation that is stomach-churning, a defense that hasn’t been impressive and a squad coming off the worst back-to-back beatings in club history – beating the Colts was a moment of pure joy.

Much of the credit must go to RB Maurice Jones-Drew (26 carries, 105 yards, one receiving TD and one rushing TD), but QB David Garrard had quite a game as well. He was 17 of 22 for 163 yards and two scores, and he led the Jaguars on a last-minute, 59-yard drive that set up Scobee for the game-ending heroics.

"Jacksonville did a good job of controlling the clock,'' Colts WR Reggie Wayne said. "Nothing you can do, the guy (Scobee) boomed it.’’

Plus, you can’t forget the offensive line, which kept Garrard upright and shut down the Colts fearsome pass rush of Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis.

More than anything, it was simply a special win for a team in desperate need of one.

“It was a great moment in that locker room,'' Del Rio said. "I said, 'Guys you want to savor this. You want to get together tomorrow and enjoy it.'”
