JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - It was a game to remember for Brad Meester, but a game to forget for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The 14 year veteran center played his final NFL game Sunday as the Jags lost 30-10 to the Indianapolis Colts in Indy on Sunday, ending their season with a 4-12 record after starting the season 0-8.
It was a slow start for the offense after Jones-Drew lost a fumble on the Jags first drive. The next two drives were three and out for the Jags before they were able to get into field goal position for Josh Scobee on their fourth drive. Indianapolis then proceeded to score multiple times, stretching the lead to 30-3.
It took Jacksonville until its final drive to score on a 14 yard touchdown pass from Henne to Kerry Taylor, making the score 30-10.
Jags quarterback Chad Henne went 30-51 for 331 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew had a tough day on the ground, racking up just 39 yards rushing.
For the Colts, quarterback Andrew Luck threw 26 of 37 passes complete for 282 yards and a touchdown before being benched in the fourth quarter for Matt Hasselbeck. Running backs Trent Richardson and Donald Brown each ran for a rushing touchdown.
After that winless start the Jaguars returned from their bye week with a new focus, winning four out of five games including three consecutive wins for the first time since 2010. They then lost their last three games of the season.
Now, the questions about the offseason begin. Maurice Jones-Drew and Chad Henne are both free agents and it's uncertain if either will return to the team. There's also the matter of dealing with wide receiver Justin Blackmon, who was suspended for the season earlier this year for violation of the NFL's substance abuse policy. Blackmon missed the first four games of the season because of a separate violation of that policy.
