    Jaguars Clinch 3rd Consecutive AFC South Title

    Jacksonville, FL- The Jacksonville Jaguars continue their dominance of the AFC South by defeating the Indianapolis Colts 38-3 and in the process capturing their third straight division championship.

    The Jaguars have now won 13 straight division games dating back to Season 3 including their fifth straight against the Colts.

    The game featured a spectacular performance by Jaguar running back Maurice Jones-Drew who finished with 175 yards on the ground and a career high five touchdowns. Jones-Drew now has 25 rushing touchdowns on the year, which leads the league puts him within striking distance of his league record 32 touchdowns he set last season.

    Equally as impressive was Jaguar quarterback Matthew Stafford who played a flawless game, going 11/11 through the air with 170 yards although he did not have a touchdown.

    Notably absent from the post-game locker room was the champagne-drenched celebrations of the past two years.

    “It’s not that this is becoming old-hat,” said Coach Dunlap. “We just feel that this isn’t our ultimate goal, so hopefully we will be celebrating something bigger in a few weeks.”

    The Colts meanwhile fell on some bad luck late in the game, as both Antoine Bethea and Gary Brackett would be lost to season ending injuries.

    Bethea and Brackett join a long list on the Colts injury report that certainly hasn’t helped them this season.

    Jacksonville (12-1) will now turn it’s attention to home field advantage and the #1 seed in the AFC playoffs. They can clinch both with a victory next week against the Atlanta Falcons (5-8).
