Jags Defeat Colts!: MAURICE JONES-DREW ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

New, comments
I'm speechless. What an amazing win. 377 yards on the ground.

Some Stats!

Maurice Jones-Drew: 15 Attempts, 166 yards, 2 td, 11 yards per rush, PLUS a 93 yard kickoff return for TD! (That's Nine Rushing TD's, Two Receiving, One Special Teams TD for the Season.

UPDATE Don Banks catches up to what we've known here all along.

Don't look now, but Jones-Drew, the former UCLA Bruin, is putting on a heck of a late rush for the league's offensive rookie of the year award.

Jones-Drew, a second-round pick who went 60th overall, 58 spots behind USC's Heisman winner Reggie Bush, entered Week 14 with 817 yards of total offense, nine touchdowns and a 25.2 yard kickoff return average. Against the Colts, Jones-Drew not only had those 166 rushing yards and two touchdowns, he added a third score on a 93-yard kickoff return to open the second half, and caught a pass for 15 yards. He's giving us a third option to consider for offensive ROY, along with Colts running back Joseph Addai and Saints receiver Marques Colston.

Fred Taylor: 9 Carries, 131 yards, 1 td, 14.5 yards per rush!

Alvin Pearman: 13 Rushes, 71 Yards, 1 TD, 5.4 yards per rush!

You can't stop a Rush Attack like that!

Now it's New England at Home!

(Root for the Chargers and Bills!)
