NFL: Jacksonville 41, Tampa Bay 14

Dec. 11, 2011 at 5:17 PM   |   Comments

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Maurice Jones-Drew scored twice on the ground and twice more on scoring grabs Sunday, powering the Jacksonville Jaguars to a 41-14 win over Tampa Bay.

Jones-Drew finished with 136 total yards, establishing a new franchise record with 73 career touchdowns.

The Jaguars (4-9) snapped a three-game losing streak thanks in part to Blaine Gabbert, who threw for 217 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

He hit Marcedes Lewis with a pair of passes good for 77 yards in the win -- the Jags' first under interim head Coach Mel Tucker.

The reeling Buccaneers (4-9), meanwhile, blew a 14-0 lead and committed seven turnovers en route to their seventh straight loss.

Bucs quarterback Josh Freeman re-entered the lineup after missing last week's game, tossing for 181 yards and two interceptions on 16-of-30 passing efficiency.

He also ran for 26 yards and a score.
