Josh Scobee's 25-yard field goal
with 37 seconds left sent Jacksonville past Pittsburgh 31-29 in the
AFC wild-card playoff. The Jaguars advance to play either
Indianapolis or New England next weekend.
The Jaguars are the first team in the Steelers' proud 75-year
history to beat them twice in Pittsburgh in the same season.
Jacksonville appeared finished after Najeh Davenport's second
1-yard TD run of the game gave the Steelers a 29-28 lead with about
6 minutes left. But Jags quarterback David Garrard found a seam on
a convert-or-else fourth-and-2 play and rambled 32 yards to the
Steelers 11 with 1:56 left to set up the winning kick.
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger put
the Steelers into a deep hole by throwing three interceptions.
Rashean Mathis returned the first one 63 yards for a touchdown.
Maurice Jones-Drew brought back a kickoff 96 yards to set up
another Jags TD.
