The Jaguars know they have rediscovered their running game and will take a 3-3 record into their bye…
Jaguars Report Card vs Rams
RUSHING OFFENSE: A-minus -- It took three quarters for Maurice Jones-Drew to get rolling, but he wound up with 133 yards in 33 carries after having just 11 yards in eight carries in the first half.
PASS DEFENSE: B -- They still don't have a pass rush. The Jaguars got to Marc Bulger just once even though his best receiver, Donnie Avery, went down in the first half. Bulger was held to 213 yards and threw one pick.
RUSH DEFENSE: B-plus -- The Jaguars held Steven Jackson to 50 yards in 16 carries with his longest run of only 15 yards. They did such a good job against Jackson that the Rams gave him just four carries in the second half.
SPECIAL TEAMS: D -- Josh Scobee kicked a 36-yard field goal to win the game but holder Adam Podlesh botched an extra point attempt by dropping the snap and averaged only 36.3 yards per punt in the swirling wind. The kick coverage team gave up a 58-yard return.
COACHING: C -- Against a team that lost its 16th game in a row, the Jaguars had three turnovers and were forced into overtime to get the victory. It was another example that the Jaguars under coach Jack Del Rio tend to play down to the level of their competition.
