Jacksonville Jaguars defeat Kansas City Chiefs: Too Close for Comfort

The above picture is an actual image of a Jacksonville Jaguar, in this case defensive end Julius Williams, actually sacking an opposing quarterback.  Let that sit for a second.

Ok, the Jaguars beat the Kansas City Chiefs 24-21 in what was the windiest game I've seen in awhile.  The Jaguars won, of course, but it came just a little too close at the end.  There's something about teams from Missouri and giving me a little bit of a heart attack at the end.  That the game came down to the Jaguars needing to stop an onside kick attempt was a little unnerving.

But a win is a win is a win, the Jaguars are sitting at 4-4 and are back on track.  David Garrard looked sharp, though Kansas City had him on his back too much for comfort.  Mike Sims-Walker had a great day, his 61 yard touchdown against "hole in zone" was huge, though we owe the Kansas City defense for that one.

I'm not going to be upset though, I'm just happy that we beat a team that we're supposed to beat and that we're officially in the muddled middle of average NFL teams.  Considering all the things we need, being merely average is a good building point for next season.

Here's to a win!
