    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky DENVER - The Jaguars got an efficient performance from David Garrard, steady work on defense and a fortunate late penalty call that helped them hold on to a win they needed to get to 3-3.
    It's a good spot after an 0-2 start, considering they've already faced four division leaders. Now Jacksonville has a bye followed by matchups with Cleveland, Cincinnati and Detroit on the horizon. Those three teams are a collective 1-14.
    While Jacksonville missed safety Reggie Nelson, who missed his third straight game with a knee injury, the Broncos were thinned out at receiver and unable to do much for Jay Cutler.
    The Jaguars managed to minimize the damage by Brandon Marshall and survive some strong running by Michael Pittman.
    Six games into the season, despite significant interior offensive line damage, they've done well to regain their balance.
    And while Denver matched their toughness and physicality for a good share of this game, ultimately the Jags did well to build on that identity and use it to get a big win at a tough venue.

    Not enough Jay Cutler and his unmanageable hair.

    MJD was GOLD for my fantasy team, Jay Cutler is also on the team, he did okay.

    IMO, I think that they won't make the playoffs. Their defense sucks. Cutler can't carry the team.

    Shanahan must be close to getting the boot, he's done nothing in 10 years.
