However then proceeded to blow a 17-Zero lead. It didn’t actually matter as a result of it was the final recreation of the season, so possibly the Jaguars imploded on function to get a greater draft decide or one thing, but it surely was indicative of Jacksonville’s entire 2016 season. It was truly one in all Blake Bortles’ extra environment friendly outings of the season by way of throwing the ball (301 yards, no interceptions, 96.2 ranking), however he discovered different methods to lose the sport by coughing up two fumbles, which each led to scores.

The Jags nearly let this one slip out of their grasp as properly, incomes a 23-6 benefit late within the third quarter, however then permitting the Colts to shut the hole. Bortles hit Allen Hurns with a 42-yard landing go after which Andrew Luck linked with Phillip Dorsett for a 64-yard rating with slightly greater than three minutes to go. Nonetheless, that might be the final rating the Jaguars gave up and so they left the UK with a three-point victory. Bortles performed even higher on this recreation. He didn't flip the ball over in any respect and neither did the staff. See good issues occur if you don’t give the rock away.

By way of the A long time

1990s: Colts 1-Zero (1995)
2000-2010: Colts lead 14-5
2011-Current: 6-Eight
Fast ideas: The Colts dominated early, successful the one matchup of the 1990s, the primary 4 within the early 2000s and eight of the primary 10 general. Indianapolis additionally had its approach all through many of the first decade within the 2000s, together with three separate successful streaks of three video games or extra from 2000 to 2010. The Jaguars have made this sequence aggressive as of late, getting 60 p.c of their whole wins within the sequence throughout the final 5 seasons. Each video games final season had been received by 4 factors or much less and Jacksonville had large leads in every. Jacksonville has received two of the final three conferences, whereas the Colts received the earlier six. Jacksonville’s longest successful streak was three video games in 2011-2012.
Waiting for Sunday, I believe that is the primary 12 months shortly the place you'll be able to clearly see that Jacksonville’s roster is way more gifted than the Colts. I count on the line of defense to feast on Indianapolis’ offensive line and I additionally count on the Jaguars to have the ability to pound the rock on offense, as long as Leonard Fournette is ready to play. If Fournette can’t go, Chris Ivory might want to step up. It’s a fair week and the Jaguars are the higher staff. I count on a win.
