JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Fred Taylor started right, cut back left, broke a tackle, waited patiently for a downfield block, then strolled into the end zone.
His 62-yard touchdown run on Jacksonville's opening play set the tone for a rout of the Oakland Raiders.
Taylor finished with 111 yards as the Jaguars won for the sixth time in seven games and clinched the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs.
So much for a letdown after last week's big win at Pittsburgh. So much for a Pro Bowl hangover. And so much for having to worry about winning at nemesis Houston in the season finale.
