Jones-Drew started his streak with 135 yards at Dallas, then ran for 100 yards and two touchdowns against Houston following a bye week. He really cranked things up the last three weeks, running for 133 yards and a touchdown against Cleveland, 113 yards at the New York Giants and then enjoyed a career day against the Titans.

He broke tackles inside, found wide running lanes outside and ran over defenders every time he got a chance. His saved his best run for last, when he eluded Chris Hope in the backfield, dealt Michael Griffin a ferocious stiff arm, put a nasty juke move on Tim Shaw and finally hit the ground after a 37-yard gain. The Jaguars ran out the clock from there, settling for a 17-6 victory that was more lopsided than the final score indicated.

Without that last run, Jones-Drew might have fallen short of the 150-yard mark again. Instead, it allowed him to move onto the next challenge _ after plenty of extra attention.

“It’s cool everybody is coming to say hello to me, but there are other guys you should be talking to around here,” Jones-Drew said. “Those are the ones that are really putting in all the work. … I just think when we’re able to run the ball, we’re able to be balanced. When you’re a balanced offense nowadays, you’re hard to stop, and that’s what we want to be.”
