Impossible choice for Jaguars' D

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Dallas Clark's 1-yard touchdown reception from Peyton Manning with 12:32 left in the game illustrated why the Colts can be so impossible to defend.

They went with super heavy personnel and the Jaguars matched, and as soon as you saw it, you said, "They'll throw."

Sure enough, Manning faked a handoff and found a wide open Clark in the back of the end zone behind Mike Peterson.

The things is, if the Jags had decided the Colts would throw and put in personnel better equipped to defend it, Indy would have run.

Talk about damned if you do, damned if you don't.

The Jaguars' lead is down to 24-21.
