Boyd’s 1997 Replay Game 89 (Week 7) Philadelphia at Jacksonville

Jaguars return to form

It took them six games, but the Jacksonville Jaguars finally looked like the team that went to the AFC Championship game a year ago. In front of 69,000 in Alltel Stadium, the Jaguars put up 38 points in a win over the Philadelphia Eagles, 38-10.

Don Davey got the Jaguars moving as he got the trifecta on Eagles’ QB Ty Detmer. Davey sacked him, stripped him and recovered Detmer’s fumble in the end zone for a TD! Davey’s awesome defensive play gave the Jaguars a 7-3 lead and the Jaguar offense took over from there.

QB Mark Brunell threw for 277 yards and 2 TDs. Jimmy Smith caught 7 of those passes for 142 yards and a 3-yd TD Pass. Brunell also scrambled in for a 4-yd TD run.

As for the Eagles, they couldn’t get anything going at all. They mustered up 177 total yards of offense. Detmer was eventually benched. Ricky Watters rushed for 68 yards and caught five passes for 33 yards.

The Jaguars will hope to keep this rolling as they travel to Big D to take on the Cowboys, while the Eagles hope to get their season back on track as they host the winless Arizona Cardinals.
