Missed opportunities plague Colts



Jones-Drew ran for 177 yards in 28 carries, including a 59-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter that had brought the Jaguars to within 14-10. Scobee, who has had three game-winning kicks against Indianapolis during his career, connected on field goal attempts from 44, 47 and 26 yards. His last kick had given the Jaguars a 16-14 lead with 11:02 left in the game.
"Obviously a devastating loss. Big plays, penalties, knock yourself out. Negative yards plays. You can just go across the board in all three phases," the Indianapolis coach pointed out later. "[There] were a lot of good things also. This one's going to stick in the pit of their stomachs, in all our stomachs, for quite some time. But obviously we're going to have to get over it and move on and get better from here.
"Proud of the guys for fighting their tails off and putting us in a position to win the game. Adam comes back and kicks what you would think would be a game winner. But in the NFL, it doesn't matter how many ticks are left [on the game clock]. Until it reads 0:00, anything can happen. And that's what we found out [Sunday]."
Gabbert completed only 10-of-21 passes for 155 yards on the day and was sacked once by Colts outside linebacker Robert Mathis. But the former University of Missouri signal caller did enough to lead Jacksonville to the win.
Luck, meanwhile, was forced to throw more than he wanted to due to an inconsistent running game. He connected on 22 of a season-high 46 passes for 313 yards (also a career-best) and two touchdowns.
"I think maybe just a little lack of focus. I point the finger at myself for some bad decisions. Throwing a ball straight to the Mike [middle] linebacker. A couple passes are behind guys on third down that would have kept drives going," he said afterward.
