Iffy call against Barnes undoes Jags' drive

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- If things come apart for the Jaguars, who stormed out to a 14-0 lead and are up on the Colts, 14-7, they may look back at a call against left tackle Khalif Barnes.

David Garrard hit Mike Walker up the left side to convert a third-and-6 and the Jags looked to be on the move again. But Barnes was flagged for a hold.

Replays on NFL Network showed it to be a bad call -- Barnes drove Dwight Freeney to the ground, and Freeney got the benefit of the doubt in a case where he didn't deserve it.

The Colts fielded a punt. And Peyton Manning has now completed his first 10 passes.
