This was a great night for the Jags. The Jags offense had 410 yards and only gave up 118. Coach Swieter was happy because a lot of players got to be part of this win tonight. 5 different guys caught a ball and 5 guys ran the ball. This was a nice way to start the playoffs.
Coaches were very happy with this win but know we have to fix some mental mistakes and eliminate our penalties if we want to continue this run deep into the playoffs.
