Let's not get carried away. A 41-point onslaught on the going-nowhere-fast Tampa Bay Buccaneers is not exactly a monumental breakthrough for the Jaguars, but it sure beats the perpetually drab story lines of a lost 2011 season. Did you really want to be hearing or reading about a December swoon? Or about the painful ineffectiveness of a Blaine Gabbert-led offense? Or how an injury-riddled secondary again was torched by an opponent that snapped a six-game losing streak?

Jaguars vs. Buccaneers Game Recap - A lower draft pick never felt so good | Jaguars Blog

The reason, he said, was far more basic. The feeling of victory? It just felt really good.

What it means: The Jaguars got their fourth win of the season and first under interim coach Mel Tucker in what had to be a cathartic day for a team that had lost three in a row and endured the firing of Jack Del Rio and the news that the team was being sold. Tucker got an ice water bath at the end. The Jaguars showed they can still play with life, can still beat another bad team and can, as is often the case, get massive production out of Maurice Jones-Drew. He turned 33 touches into 136 yards and four touchdowns.
