Jacksonville Jaguars defeat St. Louis Rams 23-20 in dramatic overtime finish!


In what was an exhausting and dramatic game between the 0-5 St. Louis Rams and the 2-3 Jacksonville Jaguars, the home team pulled out a victory with a 36 yard overtime field goal by Josh Scobee.  The Jaguars seemed to have the game under control after a Jones-Drew touchdown, but a short pass by David Garrard was intercepted and returned for a touchdown by Leonard Little.

The Jaguars had nearly 500 yards of offense, with Jones-Drew, Torry Holt and Mike Sims-Walker each having over 100 yards receiving or rushing.  Mike Thomas made some big plays, and with the exception of the final Rams drive, the defense did a great job, particularly on pass defense.  We can debate on Monday what went wrong on the final drive, but you can't argue with a win going into the bye week.

Player of the Game: Maurice Jones-Drew.  He asked for the ball, he demanded that the Jaguars return to a run-first idenity, and when the game was on the line, he put on a show.  Three rushing touchdowns, 133 rushing yards, 45 receiving yards, all rounding out a dominating performance.  Sure, he lost a fumble in the red zone, but he more than made up for it.

When you run your mouth, you have to back it up.  MJD backed it up.

More to come, time to enjoy the post-game show.  Or if you're me, you're going to work.
