Today at No. 32? Andre Branch breakout game? Andre Branch breakout game!
Week 14 — December 13, 2015
See the highlights here.
It was the largest margin of victory for head coach Gus Bradley in his nearly three years as head coach. Hell, it was the largest margin of victory I can remember. And it came after two of the most disappointing losses in recent history. With the Colts keeping an injured Andrew Luck out and scheduling his return to (coincidentally!) line up with the week after they played the Jaguars.
Well, how do you like them apples, Indianapolis?
After a lackluster first half by both teams, the Jaguars came out like a completely different team and won convincingly. And that’s not something you can say very often about Jacksonville.
Gus Bradley did anything but sit on the lead. In front of a home crowd that is frustrated with him as a head coach, he stepped on the Colts’ throats. He wanted the 5-0 as much as EverBank Field. And when the crowd chanted “WE WANT FIF-TY!” on a 4th-and-goal that they could have just kicked a field goal for, he let Bortles quick snap it and dive over the pile.
But is was Andre Branch who had a career day this day — four tackles (one for a loss), two sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and a touchdown.
Why the ranking at No. 32?
Scoring a FIFTY BURGER on an opponent is not very Jaguars, but it gets high marks for the ANDRE BRANCH BREAKOUT variable.
That one time we were undefeated as a team with Luke McCown as our quarterback.
