JACKSONVILLE (AP) — David Garrard threw three touchdown passes, Maurice Jones-Drew and Rashad Jennings each topped 100 yards rushing and the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Oakland Raiders 38-31 Sunday in a game filled with big plays.

The Jaguars overcame a 10-point deficit to win for the fifth time in the last six games, setting up a critical AFC South game at Indianapolis next week.

Jacksonville (8-5) stayed a game ahead of the Colts and can clinch the division title next week with a victory and a loss by Houston. The Raiders (6-7) lost for the third time in four weeks and faded from postseason contention.

The Jaguars can thank Garrard, Jennings, Jones-Drew and a huge defensive stand late for getting in position to clinch. There were six scoring plays of at least 30 yards in the game, including three by Oakland’s Darren McFadden.
