2020 record: 1-15

Coach: Urban Meyer (1st year with Jaguars)

2021 Additions: CB Shaquill Griffin, S Rayshawn Jenkins, DE Roy Robertson-Harris, WR Jamal Agnew, WR Marvin Jones, TE Chris Manhertz, QB C.J. Beathard, RB Carson Hyde, S Johnathan Ford, DE Jihad Ward, OLB Damien Wilson, WR Phillip Dorsett, CB Jameson Houston, DT Malcom Brown, TE Tim Tebow

2021 losses: WR Keelan Cole, DT Al Woods, WR Chris Conley, QB Mike Glennon, CB Rashaan Melvin, TE Eric Aubert, LB Joe Giles-Harris, CB Greg Mabin, LB Kamalei Correa, CB Josiah Scott

2021 draft class: QB Trevor Lawrence, RB Travis Etienne, CB Tyson Campbell, OL Walker Little, S Andre Cisco, DL Jay Tufele, EDGE Jordan Smith, TE Luke Farrell, WR Jalen Camp

At A Glance: The Jaguars hired former Florida and Ohio State title-winning coach Urban Meyer to pair with No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence. Meyer has never coached in the NFL, and how he works out will have a major impact on the trajectory of the Jaguars' franchise. But Lawrence — who was roundly considered a generational quarterback prospect ahead of the draft — will have an even bigger impact on where Jacksonville is going in the AFC South.

Star Power: Wide receiver D.J. Chark caught 73 passes for 1,008 yards with eight touchdowns en route to a Pro Bowl bid in 2019, but his production tailed off amid a messy season under center for the Jaguars in 2020. Can the speedy LSU product rebound with Lawrence and a new offense in 2021?

All-time series: 25-15

Last matchup: Week 17, 2020 at Lucas Oil Stadium - Colts 28, Jaguars 14

The Colts secured a spot in the playoffs with a comfortable win over Jacksonville to end the 2020 season — a win that also avenged their Week 1 loss to the Jaguars, which was their AFC South rival's only win of the season.
