Maurice Jones-Drew a big reason to celebrate

Maurice Jones-Drew traditionally has big games against the Indianapolis Colts, and in Sunday's 22-17 win he was a big reason for Jaguars fans to celebrate.

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew hit the hole after a hand off from quarterback Blaine Gabbert, and exploded down the field completely untouched for a 59-yard touchdown run to pull the Jaguars within four points of the Colts.

"He ran the ball well. He ran the ball very well. I think a lot of guys did some things well up front especially receivers. That’s two weeks in a row now that we’ve had really good effort by our wide receivers even on that touchdown run Justin Blackmon throwing a good block to spring him for the touchdown," Jaguars head coach Mike Mularkey told reporters on Monday.

Jones-Drew ended the game with 28 carries for 177 yards and a touchdown, putting his career total against the Colts to nearly 1,400 yards. For whatever reason, Jones-Drew just always seems to have a big day against the Colts and averages over 100 yards a game against them.
