The Jaguars embarrassment is Ryan Mathews gain. The Chargers running back scored on a 31-yard touchdown scamper on the first play from scrimmage after Jacksonville botched the snap on a field goal attempt for a loss of about 40 yards. Mathews run gave the Chargers a 38-14 lead in the fourth quarter.
Here's video of the run:
It's a nice run. Mathews does a good job of bouncing outside and the Jaguars cannot tackle or pursue along proper angles. Good football is nice to watch. BUT: the botched field goal attempt is the real treat.
Here is the NFL.com play-by-play transcription of the play:
