(Newser) – David Garrard was just trying to get a first down, but the Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback ended up getting a lot more than that Saturday. Garrard rambled through the Pittsburgh Steelers defense for 32 yards to set up the winning field goal in a wild 31-29 NFL Wild Card playoff win in Pittsburgh, AP reports.

The Steelers had come from 18 points down to take a 29-28 lead with about six minutes left and had the Jaguars forced into a do-or-die, fourth-and-two play. Garrard tucked the ball and didn't stop until he reached the Pittsburgh 11 with just under two minutes to go. Josh Scobee kicked a 25-yard field goal to win it.
