Andrew Luck completed almost 70 percent of his passes, throwing for 227 yards. The Colts' rookie quarterback was unable to find the end zone through the air, but managed to score twice with his legs. Luck had a one-yard touchdown run and a five-yard touchdown run. He now improves his season total to 2,631 passing yards, on pace to break Cam Newton's rookie passing record set last year.
For Jacksonville, an offense that struggled to move the ball through the air was the story of the night. Blaine Gabbert played just over three quarters before being knocked out of the game due to a shoulder injury. Chad Henne took over, but didn't fare much better. Ultimately, Jaguars' QBs totaled 300 passing yards on 47 attempts, an average of just 6.4 yards, though this is heavily skewed by Henne's fourth quarter.
With Thursday's win, the Indianapolis Colts improve to an unexpected 6-3 on the season. Jacksonville is still searching for its second win, now holding a record of 1-8.
