Maurice Jones-Drew ran the ball 31 times for 186 yards and added one catch for four yards in the Jaguars Week 13 win over Tennessee, 17-6.
It was a run first game plan, as the Jags kept the ball on the ground for 11 of their first 12 plays. The team finished with 53 runs compared to just 19 passes. Credit the offensive line and tight ends, as Jacksonville’s runners had huge lanes to work with the entire afternoon. No play typified Jones-Drew’s game more than a fourth quarter run during which he stiff-armed S Michael Griffin to the ground and weaved his way through a porous Tennessee defense for 37 yards. He’s got a great playoff schedule, and could easily end up as the most valuable player down the stretch.
