JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - David Garrard threw for 233 yards and a touchdown for the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday. But he made four mistakes, and those are what stand out.
The former East Carolina star and Durham native created several big plays for the Jaguars, but he also threw three interceptions, fumbled once and was sacked four times Sunday in the 24-17 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
Three of the turnovers were returned for touchdowns. It was Garrard's worst day as a pro and might have hurt Jacksonville's playoff hopes. Tennessee's Adam "Pacman" Jones returned the first interception 83 yards for a touchdown in the opening quarter.
Cortland Finnegan scooped up Garrard's fumble in the third and ran 92 yards for a score to break a 10-10 tie. A few plays later, Chris Hope picked off Garrard and raced 61 yards for the game-winner.
Garrard fell to 5-3 as a starter this season. He believes the best way to overcome his performance is to play better against New England.
