The Jaguars, 1 1/2-point underdogs, go for the first win of the season against Andrew Luck and the Colts.
Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert is expected to start despite leaving last Sunday's game with an injury against the Houston Texans, a 27-7 loss. Gabbert fully participated fully in practice Wednesday, and it is expected he will be at full strength and will play instead of backup quarterback Chad Henne.
The Jaguars are putting their weakness against Indianapolis' defense: the run. Jacksonville's rushing defense has given up 339 yards through two games, and that ranks 31st of 32 teams in the NFL. But the Colts are 29th in the league in rushing offense with 147 rushing yards.
Colts rookie quarterback Andrew Luck is 43 of 76 for 533 passing yards, three touchdowns and three interceptions so far in his young career. He was much better in his second game, going 20 of 31 for 224 yards, two scores and no interceptions Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.
