The Jacksonville Jaguars have never swept the Indianapolis Colts twice in a season with the head coach they started the year with.

But they have a chance to do it for a second time with an interim head coach in Doug Marrone.

The above quote got me asking myself, “Have the Jaguars ever swept the Colts?”

The answer is yes — during the 2011 season with Mel Tucker at the helm.

With five games left in the 2011 season, the Jaguars parted ways with Jack Del Rio and promoted defensive coordinator Mel Tucker to interim head coach. The Jaguars, who were 3-9 at the time of Del Rio’s firing, managed to finish the year 2-3 and closed out the year by sweeping the hapless Colts who ended the year as the worst team in the NFL.

They then went on to select Andrew Luck four months later... but hey we got our win, right?
