Jags should have killed more clock while up 14

DENVER -- The Jaguars did a poor job of running the clock while trying to protect a two-touchdown lead, and now it's a one touchdown lead.

After a three and out that took only a little over a minute off the clock, the Jaguars punted the ball back to Denver.

Glenn Martinez nearly broke the return for a score, but got dragged down by punter Adam Podlesh. The tackle only served to slow down the Broncos a bit. Brandon Marshall's spectacular run after catch got him out of the grasp of three players and on to a 26-yard gain, one of three plays in a quick scoring drive.

Those of us already writing about how the Jags are leveling their record at 3-3 better get our heads back in the game. And the Jags better find a couple first downs if they want the result they're looking for.

Both Maurice Jones-Drew and Michael Pittman are over 100 yards rushing.

Jones-Drew just went over the number as the Jaguars seem more dedicated to running it than they were a little while ago.
