INDIANAPOLIS - Byron Leftwich is getting used to these frantic finishes. He just hopes they keeping turning out the right way.

On Sunday, the quarterback led the Jaguars to scoring drives on their final three possessions, and rookie Josh Scobee joined the growing list of Jacksonville heroes by making a season-long 53-yard field goal with 38 seconds left to beat the Colts.

It was another chapter in their magical season. They have won all five games in the game's final minute.

"We just find a way to pull it out," Leftwich said. "We expect to win every game. That's the personality of our team."

Sunday's victory might have been the most critical.

Jacksonville moved past Indianapolis and into first place in the AFC South, snapped the Colts' four-game winning streak and won for the first time at the RCA Dome after three losses there.

It also gave the Jaguars a split in the season series after losing at home to the Colts three weeks ago.

"We knew it was important, but we didn't want to tell all you guys and blow it up into something bigger than it was," Leftwich said. "We knew we had to find a way to win this game."
