Jones-Drew owns otherwise dull one

INDIANAPOLIS — Maurice Jones-Drew reverted to his old wrecking-ball style against winless Indianapolis. He wore down the defense and eventually made it pay.

On a day when two of the league's worst offenses sputtered, Jones-Drew kicked things into high gear by rushing for 114 yards and scoring on a late 3-yard TD run to give the Jaguars their first road win of the season.

Jones-Drew has six 100-yard games in 11 tries against Indianapolis and has gained 1,043 of his 6,102 yards against them.

The teams combined for 12 punts, 11 in the first 34 minutes. Jacksonville finished with 18 first downs and 251 yards of offense.

That was all the Jags needed against Indy's stumbling offense.

"We feel like if we can be a balanced offense, we'll be pretty decent, so obviously the running game is a part of that," Jones-Drew said.

The Colts finished with 13 first downs, 212 total yards and their lowest point total since 1997.
