Jaguars Vs. Colts Recap: Jacksonville Shocks Indianapolis

The Jacksonville Jaguars looked like they weren't going to last against the Colts on Sunday, but shocked the Colts thanks to an 80-yard touchdown pass from Blaine Gabbert to Cecil Shorts.

As it looked like the Jaguars were once again going to drop a gut wrenching game and move to a disappointing 0-3 to start the 2012 NFL season. Once again however with under a minute left in the game and the Jaguars needing a touchdown, second-year quarterback Blaine Gabbert delivered a strike to the middle of the field as Cecil Shorts III split some Colts defenders and caught the back of the football, resulting in an 80-yard go-ahead touchdown pass.

The Jaguars took a 22-17 lead after failing the two point conversation attempt, leaving just 45 seconds left on the clock. After a big kick return by Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton, it seemed as if the Jaguars we're going to suffer the same fate they did against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 1, as the defense allowed the Colts to quickly move down the field.

Thankfully, the Colts needed more than just a field goal to tie the game as Andrew Luck's final two pass attempts fell incomplete, as the Jaguars picked up their first win of the season.
