ARLINGTON (AP) – David Garrard tied a club record with four touchdown passes and ran for another in leading the Jacksonville Jaguars to a 35-17 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
The Cowboys (1-6) continued their worst start since 1989. The disturbing part for Dallas is that this one wasn’t even close; all previous losses were by a touchdown or less.
The Cowboys was within 14-3 just before halftime when new starting quarterback Jon Kitna turned right, Marion Barber went left and they collided while making the handoff. Jacksonville (4-4) made the goal-line stand and later stretched the lead to 28-3.
Garrard narrowly missed a perfect quarterback rating, finishing 17 of 21 for 260 yards. Even with three sacks and a lost fumble his rating was 157.8; perfect is 158.3.
