Passing Game Bails Out Jaguars in Win over Falcons


The Jaguars victory over the Falcons on Sunday would not have been complete if they didn’t pick on one of their old friends – cornerback Lewis Sanders.  The one-time Jag was burned on Sunday in the second half, as the Jaguars took advantage of him to the tune of at least six completions, including the game winning touchdown to Reggie Williams that covered 14 yards with 14:10 left in the fourth quarter.  Sanders was one of the last Jaguars released during the final cuts back in 2004, and the team was more than happy to exploit him on Sunday afternoon.  “No knock on him or anything,” Williams said of Sanders. “We wanted to score and he just happened to be in the wrong spot.”

The passing game was the key on Sunday, as the running back combo of Maurice Jones-Drew and Fred Taylor were once again basically ineffective vs the Falcons.  Along with Greg Jones and David Garrard rushing as well, the Jags were only able to manage 113 yards on 34 attempts.  The team was also held down for the most part last week at home when the lost to the Titans.  Taylor had really the only big carry of the game, a 29-yard run on his first carry.  He was stopped for the most part the rest of the way.  “Believe me, I’ve got a list already before I even look at the tape,” Jags coach Jack Del Rio said. “There are a lot of things we need to do better as a football team.”
