NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Jacksonville Jaguars players listen to Calais Campbell, learn how to bounce back from losses -
Calais Campbell has repeated it after every loss the Jacksonville Jaguars have suffered this season.

"Good teams don't lose two in a row," he said. "You have to bounce back."

Boy, have his teammates listened. The Jaguars have responded with big victories after each of their four losses, including last Sunday's 30-10 rout of the Indianapolis Colts at EverBank Field. That ability to rebound from a loss is just as responsible for the team battling for first place in the AFC South as their top-ranked defense.

How is Blake Bortles so damn good against the Indianapolis Colts? -
The Jacksonville Jaguars rebounded from their loss against the Arizona Cardinals last week, dominating the Indianapolis Colts 30-10 to pick up their eighth win of the season. The Jaguars have now guaranteed they will not have a losing season for the first time since 2007, and a big reason they won the game on Sunday was the play of quarterback Blake Bortles.

Prior to the game I had a lot of fans ask me what I thought was going to happen at kickoff, clearly still nervous from the team’s performance the week prior. I continuously said I think the Jaguars would handle the Colts and win because the Colts are 1. Bad and 2. Blake Bortles absolutely owns the Colts.

Jacoby Brissett’s worst game at the worst time -
This isn’t how Jacoby Brissett saw his day ending, lying on the turf at EverBank Field, eyes closed, everything hurting as Indianapolis Colts teammate Denzelle Good leaned down to help him up. Good quickly abandoned that idea, because Brissett wasn’t ready to get up. Not yet. Too painful. Physically, emotionally, you name it.
