The Jacksonville Jaguars are set to take on their division rival Indianapolis Colts today in Indianapolis. The Jaguars are in a three way tie for first place in the AFC South, sitting at 3-3 with the Titans and Texans, while the Colts are last in the division at 2-4.
The Colts have been without star quarterback Andrew Luck all season due to a nagging shoulder injury, but Jacoby Brissett has been at least decent in his place, attributing to six total touchdowns (three passing and three rushing) and over 1200 passing yards in six games (five starts).
However, there are weak spots all over this Colts roster, especially along the offensive line and the defense. While the Jaguars defense offers the potential for a big day, the offense needs to take advantage of every opportunity. Given that Leonard Fournette, the NFL’s second leading rusher, is out with an ankle injury, Chris Ivory has a big role to fill as the starting running back.
