EverBank Field, Jacksonville, FL
Marvin Harrison had six receptions in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville to become only the fourth receiver in NFL history with 1,000 receptions.
With the NFL's worst run defense, the Colts knew stopping the run was going to be key. But Jacksonville got great blocking and created gaping run lanes for Maurice Jones-Drew (above) and Fred Taylor. The Colts made it look ugly by missing tackles and allowing the Jaguars to average almost 9 yards per carry. Jacksonville running backs broke numerous tackles as the Jaguars finished with 375 rushing.
The Jaguars pressured Peyton Manning into a subpar performance. He connected on just 50 percent his passes, threw one interception and had a QB rating of 61.5. The Jaguars did not have to respect Indy's run game as they forced the Colts to play catch-up and limited them to 1.7 yards per carry.
Stokley injured his Achilles' tendon and did not return. ... Colts SS Antoine Bethea (shoulder) left the game early and did not return. ... The Bears also ran for 375 yards, doing it against Green Bay on Oct. 30, 1977. ... The Jags improved to 6-1 at home.
