Jacksonville Jaguars rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert began a drive on his own 29-yard line with 2:49 left on the clock, needing to drive down the field for a touchdown to win. WIth a combination of quick throws and some tough runs by Maurice Jones-Drew, Gabbert began to lead the Jaguars down the football field. The drive was assisted by a pass interference penalty on Browns cornerback Joe Haden that put the Jaguars in the redzone on the Browns 14-yard line. Two plays later, Gabbert hit wide receiver Chastin West for a 9-yard gain to the 5-yard line.
The next couple of plays were some of the most frustrating to watch in recent memory. The Jaguars ran the ball twice with Maurice Jones-Drew, getting stuffed both times. On the second run, precious time was ticking off the clock. Nearly 20 seconds were burned as the Jaguars waited to get lined up and the ball to be set, all while having a timeout left.
One guy drops a game winning touchdown, the next play the rookie can't make the throw. "I've got to find a way - that's on me," said Gabbert. "At the end of the day, my job as a quarterback is to score touchdowns."
