Scobee 59-yard field goal gives Jaguars shock win over Colts
JACKSONVILLE (Reuters) - Jacksonville's Josh Scobee nailed a last-second 59-yard field goal that lifted the Jaguars to a shock 31-28 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday in a wild AFC South division matchup.
The Colts looked to have done enough to take the game into overtime when Austin Collie scored on a one-yard touchdown pass from Peyton Manning to tie the game at 28-28 with less than a minute remaining.
Manning, who threw for 352 yards and two touchdowns, was left dejected though as he watched Scobee's kick just make it over to the delight of the 61,000 in attendance at EverBank Field in Jacksonville.
Scobee quickly took off his helmet and sprinted down the field while his team mates chased after him.
The Jaguars entered the game as heavy underdogs after dropping their prior two games by a combined score of 66-16.
Both the Jaguars and the Colts now have 2-2 records in the division and trail the 3-1 Houston Texans.
