The 1-yard line curse

And not more than two minutes after my last post the Jaguars defense stopped Denver four and out. For some reason Mike Shanahan decided to go for it on 4th and 6 from the Broncos’ own nine-yard line. A spike of frustration from Daniel Graham led to a penalty starting the Jaguars at the Denver four. A Maurice Jones-Drew rush to the one brought back the one-yard line Jaguars’ troubles.

Earlier in the game David Garrard spiked the ball on third down from the one causing the Jaguars’ to settle for a field goal. Just a few minute ago Maurice Jones-Drew fumbled the ball causing a turnover to the Broncos on the one. This third time on the one they still could not get in the end zone settling for an extra point length field goal putting them up 23-14.
