With just 59 days until kickoff, let’s talk about Josh Scobee’s 59-yard field goal to give the Jacksonville Jaguars a last-second win over the Indianapolis Colts.


It was Week 4 and the Jaguars were coming off two 25-point losses in a row — on the road to the San Diego Chargers and then a lackluster effort where the team only scored three points against the Philadelphia Eagles at home.

Our first AFC South game of the season was hosting Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts and the Jaguars were matching them drive for drive throughout the game. Tied 28-28, David Garrard put together a few good passes to...


...Tiquan Underwood?

Anyway, it got us to the Colts’ 41-yard line. With five seconds left, Scobee got the call and he nailed it from 59 yards out.

It was pandemonium in that stadium and it’s a very fun memory.

Thanks, Scobes.
