Enjoy the moment, Josh Scobee. It doesn’t get any cooler than kicking a 59-yard field goal to beat the Colts.
We’d say the Jaguars “stunned” the Colts 31-28 on Sunday, but anyone that has watched these two teams play can’t be totally stunned. It’s the most underrated rivalry in football, at least in terms of creating annual instant classics. This one didn’t disappoint.
17 points were scored in the final two and a half minutes. Maurice Jones-Drew, who rushed for 105 yards, scored his touchdown with 2:13 remaining. Peyton Manning took over, nearly got picked, then found Reggie Wayne for a 42-yard gain that led to a game-tying Austin Collie score.
The Good David Garrard was back on Sunday, and he calmly found Tiquan Underwood for two key grabs, including a beautiful 22-yard strike along the sideline. That set up Scobee’s memorable moment.
The Jaguars have been outscored by 40 points in their four games. The Colts have outscored their opponents by 25. But none of that matters because both teams are now 2-2 after the first quarter of the season.
Great, great win by the Jaguars in another Jaguars-Colts classic.
