Wrap-up: Jaguars 24, Browns 20
By Paul Kuharsky
Wrapping up the Jacksonville Jaguars' 24-20 victory against the Cleveland Browns.
What it means: The Jaguars climbed to 6-4 and could be in first place in the AFC South on a tiebreaker if the Colts lose at New England.
What I liked: Marcedes Lewis has a real nose for getting the ball to the goal line as he did on his 14-yard TD catch and sprawl in the fourth quarter that pulled the Jaguars even at 17-17. And Maurice Jones-Drew set up the final touchdown, his own 1-yard TD plunge, with a fantastic 75-yard run off a short screen pass where the Browns had chances but struggled to get him to the ground.
What I didn’t like: The Jaguars threw four interceptions (one by Jones-Drew), lost two fumbles (one each for David Garrard and Jones-Drew) and allowed four sacks of Garrard. They were also just 36 percent on third down. That’s a lot of stuff to overcome, but Cleveland managed 10 points off all the takeaways.
Big rush: Minus Aaron Kampman, the Jaguars still found six sacks of Colt McCoy, and also got an interception from Sean Considine.
What’s next: The Jaguars visit New Meadowlands stadium to face the New York Giants.
