Jaguars vs. Colts Final: What a difference a year makes

New, comments

Take a second and think back to the last time the Jaguars and the Colts played each other. About 11 months ago, on Dec. 19, 2010, the 8-5 Jaguars took on the 7-6 Colts for a chance to clinch the AFC South. Starting quarterbacks Peyton Manning and David Garrard combined for over 500 yards of passing yardage, four passing touchdowns and one interception.

Eight different Colts receivers caught a pass from Manning and six different Jaguars receivers caught passes. The Colts scored touchdowns in each quarter of the game, while the Jaguars scored one in every quarter, but the first.

Flash forward to November of 2011 and it seemed like a bizarro world matchup of the Jaguars and Colts. Instead of playing for the division lead, they were fighting to stay out of the division cellar. The only quarterback to break 100 yards passing was Blaine Gabbert, who just eclipsed the mark.

Today's game marked the first time the Jaguars have ever held the Colts to a single digit point total in 21 games against the division rival.
