Can the Jacksonville Jaguars sweep the Indianapolis Colts? - USAToday.com
The Jacksonville Jaguars haven't lost consecutive games all season.

If they're going to stay in the AFC playoff picture, they can't let it happen now.

The Jaguars (7-4) expect to bounce back from their first loss in six weeks when they host the Indianapolis Colts (3-8) on Sunday.

Jermey Parnell being a key offensive lineman isn’t something we expected in 2017 - BigCatCountry.com
For the most part, the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2017 are about what we expected overall. The defense is good, better than most thought it would be, but most thought it would be good. The offense struggles and leans heavily on the run game, while quarterback Blake Bortles is a roller coaster.

One thing that happened that most Jaguars fans didn’t expect in 2017, was that the offensive line ended up being a lot better than people gave it credit for, more specifically that right tackle Jermey Parnell would be such a key cog in the offense. There was a lot of talk about possibly cutting Parnell to save cap room, because he had a disappointing season in 2016.

A.J. Bouye talks about the lone weakness on Jacksonville Jaguars’ defense - ESPN.com
Indianapolis Colts coach Chuck Pagano pretty much called the Jacksonville Jaguars' defense invincible.

"There’s no weaknesses," he said Wednesday of the Jags' defense. "It’s hard to say, 'OK, we’re going to go after this guy or that guy.' It’s a fantastic unit and they’re extremely well-coached."

The unit does lead the NFL in total defense, scoring defense, passing defense and sacks, so it is pretty darn good. However, one area in which opposing offenses have had some success against the Jaguars' defense is with the tight end.
