The Jacksonville Jaguars (4-5) are visiting the Indianapolis Colts (5-4) and need a win to stay in the Wild Card playoff race. Nick Foles is back, Leonard Fournette is a Pro Bowl running back, DJ Chark is on the fringe of greatness as a wide receiver, the defensive line is getting better... what could go wrong?
Before the game begins, we wanted to ask the Big Cat Country team (and you!) a simple question:
“How will the Jaguars do today?”

The Jaguars offense might be a little slow to get started and the defense is going to have to hit Jacoby Brissett while he’s hobbled. If the defense can shut the Colts down early it should be a good day and give the offense time for Nick Foles to knock the rust off.
Colts win 24-17

Indianapolis is down several receivers and Jacoby Brissett will (hopefully) be a little rusty from missing last week and most of the week before it.
Jaguars win 23-17

In a must win game with Nick Foles back under center, the Jaguars get it done in a close, competitive game throughout.

Nick Foles struggles to knock off the rust and Frank Reich wins the chess match. The Colts offensive line keeps Jacoby Brissett clean and Jaguars struggle to stop the Colts tight ends.
Colts win 17-10

Nick Foles gets a challenge in the Colts top-10 pass defense. Please, Zeus, let him play well enough to win hearts and minds.
Jaguars win 20-16

The Colts offense will need to rely on a depleted receiver group and a quarterback in Jacoby Brissett coming off of an injury. The Jaguars offense will stumble early but find their groove winning by a field goal at the end.
Jaguars win 24-21
