Josh Scobee's Game-Winning Career Long Field Goal Lifts Jaguars, Spoils Manning's Milestone Day

Peyton Manning threw for 352 yards against the Jaguars today, passing John Elway for third place on the NFL's all-time passing yards list. He also led the Colts on a game-tying touchdown drive with less than two minutes left. But the Colts left the Jaguars too much time, and took one of their three remaining timeouts after a Maurice Jones-Drew run to preserve the chance to drive for a field goal after a three and out. That was a mistake. 

David Garrard found Tiquan Underwood twice on the Jaguars' final drive to move Jacksonville just into Colts territory. After a made try nullified by a timeout, Josh Scobee drilled a 59-yard field goal, a career long, as time expired.

The 31-28 loss drops the Colts to last in the AFC South and 0-2 against division foes. That's not an enviable position, even though the Colts still have seven home games remaining, including all three against the AFC South.
