Jaguars Vs. Colts Final: Jacksonville Wins Ugly

The Jacksonville Jaguars picked up their third win of the season, knocking off the Indianapolis Colts 17-3. It was a rough game that was tied 3-3 at half time, and outside of Maurice Jones-Drew and a couple of runs by Colts running back Donald Brown for a few runs, neither teams offense could do much of anything. The Colts drive started off with a bad interception by Curtis Painter that was picked off by Drew Coleman. Rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert however, gave the ball right back with another interception of his own.

The game picked up in the second half offensively for the Jaguars, as the Jaguars defense continued to suffocate the Colts offense. Until garbage time when Dan Orlovsky replaced Painter at the end of the game, the Jaguars had held the Colts to just 145 total yards. Defensive end Jeremy Mincey ended the game with 2.5 sacks, including a forced fumble, as the Jaguars sacked the Colts quarterbacks 5 times.

The Jaguars offense did wind up mounting a real drive, that was capped off by Blaine Gabbert connecting with wide receiver Jarrett Dillard for the touchdown. The Jaguars second touchdown came after a Mincey sack/forced fumble that was caught by Tyson Alualu, which set the team up in the redzone. Jones-Drew, who once again had over 100 rushing yards, punched the ball in for the touchdown and put the game out of reach.
