Colts vs. Jaguars 2013: Same story, different week for Jacksonville in 37-3 loss

The Jaguars looked decent in the first quarter, but were ultimately dominated by a much better Colts team.

The Jacksonville Jaguars gave the Indianapolis Colts a tough go early in the game with a 3-0 victory in the first quarter, but in the remainder of the game it was obvious that the visiting team was much better as the Colts rolled to an easy, 37-3 victory.

Quarterback Blaine Gabbert will likely shoulder the majority of the blame for the loss as he completed 17-of-32 passes for 179 yards with no touchdowns and three interceptions. Each of the three interceptions were off of deflections, making it hard to completely blame Gabbert for the pass game struggles, as several passes were dropped throughout the game; however, he certainly didn't play well.

While 37 points allowed would seem to reflect poorly on the Jaguars defense, they again looked like a functional group that is hamstrung by an offense that is unable to compete with anyone. Colts quarterback Andrew Luck was made uncomfortable often and didn't have his best game, and Trent Richardson averaged just three yards per carry on 20 rush attempts.

The Jaguars will travel to face the St. Louis Rams in Week 5 and they're pretty bad so.../shrugs. At least Colts owner Jim Irsay believes in the rebuild:
