DENVER -- The Jacksonville Jaguars didn't need to play keep-away from Denver this time, just takeaway.Playing their best all-around game of the season, the Jaguars got superb performances from David Garrard and Maurice Jones-Drew, plus three takeaways in a 24-17 win over the bumbling Broncos on a cold, misty Sunday.
• The Broncos lost at home for the first time this season. Denver has averaged 16.5 points in its last two games at Mile High after averaging 36.5 points per game in the first two home games of the year.
• The Jaguars have now won three of their last four games after starting 0-2. Jacksonville has also won four of its last five vs. Denver.
• Jags running back Maurice Jones-Drew rushed for over 100 yards after racking up only 30 yards combined in his last two games.
