Jaguars use 31-point blitz to singe Buccaneers

Aug 19, 2007 - 2:59 AM JACKSONVILLE, Florida (Ticker) -- Jeff Garcia led an impressive opening drive for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers but that was their only highlight of the game.

Byron Leftwich overcame a shaky start and backup David Garrard was outstanding as the Jacksonville Jaguars scored 31 consecutive points en route to a 31-19 victory over the Buccaneers on Saturday.

Garcia, who was signed as a free agent after reviving his career with the Philadelphia Eagles last season, was 6-of-6 for 43 yards and a touchdown, a 19-yard pass to David Boston, who is trying to make a comeback after sitting out last season with injuries.

From there, it was all Jaguars. After misfiring on his first four passing attempts, Leftwich completed 6-of-8 for 81 yards, leading Jacksonville to 17 points over mistake-prone Tampa Bay.

Garrard came on and finished off a nine-play, 62-yard scoring drive with a 3-yard run to cap a 24-point second quarter for the Jaguars. He finished 11-of-14 for 129 yards.

Running back Fred Taylor rushed for 16 yards on six carries, including a 2-yard touchdown for the Jaguars (1-1). Backup Maurice Jones-Drew had two receptions for 47 yards.

Running back Carnell "Cadillac" Williams had three carries for minus-1 yard for Tampa Bay (1-1).
