Colts Seek First Win
The Colts are looking to secure their first win of the season against the Jaguars after ending in a tie against the Houston Texans in week one. Indianapolis trailed 20-3 entering the fourth quarter, but offensively exploded to tie the game at 20.
A two-yard rushing touchdown with 7:42 left from Jonathan Taylor made it a 20-13 game. Quarterback Matt Ryan led the 80-yard drive that resulted in a touchdown pass to Michael Pittman Jr. which tied the game.
Ryan threw for 352 yards and completed 32 passes on 50 attempts against the Texans. Taylor carried the team on the ground, posting 161 rushing yards on 31 carries. He earned the FedEx Ground Player of the Week, following the game. In the air, Pittman Jr. pulled in nine passes for 121 yards.
Breaking the Losing Streak
The Jaguars crushed the Colts’ chances of securing an AFC wild-card spot, last season. Jacksonville defeated Indianapolis 26-11 on Jan. 9. The Colts not only have the opportunity to break their losing streak in Jacksonville on Sunday but also avenge last season’s loss.
Kickoff in Jacksonville is set for 1 p.m.
