MJD throws first non-QB touchdown in Jags history

On November 30, 1993, the Jacksonville Jaguars were formally voted into existence. Now, 20 years and one day later, the team has achieved a milestone: a non-quarterback has finally thrown a touchdown pass.

It was Maurice Jones-Drew, of course, who tossed up a TD late in the second quarter of Jacksonville's victory over Cleveland. And, seeing as how MJD has played his entire career with Jacksonville, it obviously marked his first touchdown pass as well.

Now, we could make jokes, like how the Jaguars have had plenty of non-quarterbacks under center in the last two decades, but we'll let 'em ride. Hey, if nothing else, Jacksonville isn't the laughingstock of the league anymore, right, Houston and Atlanta?
