Challenged by coach Jack Del Rio leading up to the game, the Jaguars’ defensive line helped hold Browns star RB Peyton Hillis to just 48 yards on 21 carries in Sunday’s 24-20 win.
Jaguars.com’s Vic Ketchman agrees that the defensive line turned in “a sensational performance,” also registering a season-high six sacks.
Jaguars QB David Garrard overcame five drops by receivers to throw for 254 yards and two touchdowns against Cleveland.
Del Rio believes that the Jaguars are a team of destiny.
Of Hillis’ 21 carries, six went for no gain or negative yards and his long run was a gain of six.
Jones-Drew made three Browns miss tackles on his 75-yard screen pass in the fourth quarter, which essentially proved to be the game-winning play.
The Browns have a “primitive passing attack.”
Despite the loss, Browns WR Mohamed Massaquoi described QB Colt McCoy’s toughness in playing through a second-half ankle injury as “very inspiring.”
