Jaguars Report Card vs Jets
RUSHING OFFENSE: B plus -- Maurice Jones-Drew ran 24 times for 123 yards against the Jets to boost his total to 860 yards for the season. He's likely to make the Pro Bowl.
PASS DEFENSE: B plus -- Rashean Mathis intercepted a Mark Sanchez pass on the first play of the game, and Quentin Groves intercepted a pass in the third quarter. The Jaguars held Sanchez to a 59.3 passer rating.
RUSH DEFENSE: B plus -- The Jaguars held Thomas Jones to 77 yards in 21 carries. Overall, they gave up just 110 yards rushing.
SPECIAL TEAMS: B -- The punt coverage team continues to be the best in the league, as the Jaguars held Darrelle Revis to 5 yards on two punt returns. But Josh Scobee, who kicked the game-winner from 21 yards out at the end, missed a 49-yarder. Jacksonville also failed to get a surprise onside kick in the first period.
COACHING: B -- Jack Del Rio's strategy of telling Jones-Drew to fall down on the 1 so they could run the clock down before they kicked the game-winning field goal worked perfectly. But the first-quarter onside kick was a mistake.
