ATLANTA (AP) — Jordan Todman ran for a touchdown for the second straight week and Mike Kafka threw a fourth-quarter scoring pass to Jeremy Ebert to lift the Jacksonville Jaguars to a 20-16 preseason win over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.
Todman, who appeared in only one game in his 2012 rookie season, was trying to take advantage of the void created when Justin Forsett missed the entire preseason with a toe injury. Todman had nine carries for 60 yards, including an 18-yard touchdown run, in his bid to win a backup job behind Maurice Jones-Drew.
Both teams held out most of their starters.
Josh Vaughn, trying to win a job as Steven Jackson’s backup, had a 65-yard touchdown run for the Falcons (0-4), who finished their second winless preseason in three years.
The Jaguars (1-3) took their first preseason win.
