Gabbert doubles his passing yards, gets game-winner


The Jaguars offense might not look like much, but it was at least timely.

And on a day when Andrew Luck ran out of two-minute drill magic, it was enough.

Blaine Gabbert hit Cecil Shorts for an 80-yard touchdown with 45 seconds left to escape with a 22-17 road win at Indianapolis, which left both teams 1-2.

But it was the running of Maurice Jones-Drew, who finished with 177 yards on 28 carries, which bailed the Jags out.

Gabbert got more than half his passing yards on his final play, finishing 10-of-21 for 155 yards.

That one came after a wild sequence when Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri missed a potential go-ahead field goal following a delay of game penalty, then hit a 37-yarder to put them up a point when the Jags were unable to kill the clock.
