The Jacksonville Jaguars will face off against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, at 1:00 pm EST for a chance to redeem their season in the second half. View our predictions, stats, and more right here at Generation Teal!
The Jacksonville Jaguars have an 1-9 record so far this season, for last place in the AFC South. The Colts are better than the Jaguars, but with Blake Bortles, Denard Robinson, and other stars playing, the Jags do indeed have a chance to win, but they need to clean up their turnovers.
Our Prediction: Colts 35, Jaguars 17
The Colts are coming off of an ugly loss vs. New England, so playing at home vs. the 1-9 Jags will make it easier to get a win against us. Blake Bortles has not had a turnover-free game to date, but he has had a chance to clean up some stuff during the bye week. Most games we have played in have been close since week 3, when Bortles came in at halftime vs. the very same Colts. The defense had stepped up for a few games, but have let it slip a little these past 3 weeks. All of this factors factor into the probable loss at the Colts for the Jags.
Key Jaguars Position: Strong Safety/Free Safety
Johnathan Cyprien and Josh Evans need to improve their game if they want to stop the hot Colts offense. If Cyprien can actually tackle, I feel the Jags can be better on defense this week.
Key Jaguars Player(s): Blake Bortles and Denard Robinson
Blake Bortles has had good moments and bad moments this year, but he has regressed a little since he started playing. If he can clean up the turnovers and make good throws, he should be fine. Denard Robinson has been outstanding this season, having two 100-yard rushing games in a row and he even had a multiple touchdown game vs. the Cowboys. If the Jags give him the ball against the poor Colts running defense, we should be able to move the chains quit a lot.
TURNOVER PREDICTION: 2 turnovers
Bortles must make throws, but they can’t all be risky throws that usually turn into interceptions. He has to give Denard the ball.
The Final Word
The season can still be saved! They must perform well (and win!) to gain any type of momentum. #BortlesKombat and #StandUnited!
