The Jaguars turned the ball over for a sixth time with 11:18 left in the fourth quarter and the defense was in a bad spot yet again.
But Jacksonville’s defense got off the field in four plays, holding up and allowing only a missed 51-yard field goal attempt by Phil Dawson.
On third down, Colt McCoy threw incomplete for Brian Robiskie, and after Dawson’s miss, the Jaguars took over and marched 59 yards in 12 plays to a Garrard-to-Lewis 14-yard TD that knotted the game at 17-17.
That stop after the Jaguars’ final turnover was symbolic of a tremendous defensive effort from Jacksonville.
Maurice Jones-Drew’s fumble was returned by Abram Elam for an 18-yard touchdown.
But in the five other sudden change situations, the defense was remarkable. Here’s what the Browns managed after each:
Three plays, minus-5 yards, no points
Three plays, minus-4 yards, no points
Four plays, minus-1 yard, 3 points
Three plays, minus-1 yard, no points
Four plays, 2 yards, no points
