Jaguars Vs. Colts Score Update: Maurice Jones-Drew Breaks Jacksonville Single Season Rushing Record As Jaguars Take 16-6 Lead Into Final Quarter

The Jacksonville Jaguars are hosting the Indianapolis Colts in Week 17. Both teams are hoping to finish their 2011 season on a winning note following a disappointing year.

The big news from the quarter is that Maurice Jones-Drew broke the single-season rushing record for the Jaguars team franchise. He also figures to be the rushing leader for the NFL this season, since LeSean McCoy was deactivated by the Eagles prior to their Week 17 game. Jones-Drew has over 140 yards in the game and over 1,500 on the season. Even more impressive is that if Jones-Drew ends up being the season rushing leader, he will do so while playing on a team that ranked last in the NFL in offensive yardage.

The Colts and Jaguars traded field goals in the third quarter. Adam Vinatieri of the Colts kicked a 20-yard field goal early in the quarter, his second of the game, to close the gap to 10-6. The Jags got those three points back midway through the quarter on a 32-yard field goal by Josh Scobee. Scobee would later add another field goal, his third of the game, from 47 yards out to push the Jaguars lead to 16-6.
