A Quick Look: Indianapolis Colts @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Intro: The Colts (6-6) will return to their AFC South slate on Sunday in a road trip to Jacksonville (4-8) for a 1:00 p.m. EST kickoff. The Colts have won six in a row against the Jaguars.


INDIANAPOLIS – After nearly 10 weeks away from the AFC South, the Colts will get back into the division on Sunday afternoon.

The Colts will begin a stretch of three divisional games in the final four weeks of the regular season with a trip to Jacksonville (4-8) this weekend.

It will be the Colts first rematch of the 2015 season.

Back in Week Four, the Jaguars had several chances to leave Lucas Oil Stadium with a victory, but missed field goals by Jason Myers (from 48 and 53 yards) allowed the Colts to escape.

The 16-13 overtime victory for the Colts came in Matt Hasselbeck's first start of 2015.

In Week Four, the Jaguars took a 13-10 lead into halftime before the scoring subsided majorly in the second half.

The Jaguars come into Sunday off a 39-point outing that head coach Gus Bradley called "the most complete offensive performance" of 2015.

After their 42-39 loss to the Titans last week, the Jaguars sit at 4-8 and virtually have to win out to have any chance at a playoff berth.

The key injury to watch this week for Jacksonville will be surrounding veteran leading tackler Paul Posluszny (broken hand). There's a chance Posluszny could play through the injury the rest of the season.

While Jacksonville's defense is third in yards per carry allowed this season, the unit has really struggled situationally (32nd on third down, 31st in the red zone).

The Colts are 10-4 all-time in road games versus the Jaguars, winning by a combined 78 points in their three meetings there under Chuck Pagano.

2015 NFL Draft Results: For a second straight season, the Jaguars had the No. 3 overall pick. For the second straight year, the Jaguars took a collegiate player from their home state.

In the second round, the Jaguars selected Alabama running back T.J. Yeldon, who is the team's starter as a rookie.
