Broncos lose opener in Jacksonville

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - David Garrard threw three touchdown passes, two to tight end Marcedes Lewis, and Jacksonville beat Denver 24-17 on Sunday in a season opener the Jaguars called one of the most important in franchise history.

Garrard completed 16 of 21 passes for 170 yards. A big chunk of those went to Mike Thomas, who caught six passes for 89 yards. Maurice Jones-Drew ran for 98 yards.

The Jaguars, coming off a 7-9 season in which they blacked out nine of 10 home games, needed to get off to a good start to keep fans in the seats and eliminate more talk about relocation.

Tim Tebow's debut made a victory even more imperative, especially since some Jaguars fans clamored for the former Florida star.
