    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- If things come apart for the Jaguars, who stormed out to a 14-0 lead and are up on the Colts, 14-7, they may look back at a call against left tackle <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=8466" shape="rect" target="_new">Khalif Barnes</a>.</p> <p><a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3636" shape="rect" target="_new">David Garrard</a> hit <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=10523" shape="rect" target="_new">Mike Walker</a> up the left side to convert a third-and-6 and the Jags looked to be on the move again. But Barnes was flagged for a hold.</p> <p>Replays on NFL Network showed it to be a bad call -- Barnes drove <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3539" shape="rect" target="_new">Dwight Freeney</a> to the ground, and Freeney got the benefit of the doubt in a case where he didn't deserve it.</p> <p>The Colts fielded a punt. And <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=1428" shape="rect" target="_new">Peyton Manning</a> has now completed his first 10 passes.</p>
