Jacksonville Jaguars report card following their win over the New York Jets.

PASSING OFFENSE: B plus -- David Garrard had a 101.6 passer rating and threw a touchdown pass, and he wasn't intercepted against the Jets. He also directed a game-winning, 80-yard drive to set up the game-winning field goal in the fourth quarter.

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.
