The Jacksonville Jaguars had their bye week after their first eight games. During that stretch, the team went 2-6, including going just 1-5 under rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert. The Jaguars do have one of the best rushing attacks in the NFL behind Maurice Jones-Drew, and he typically runs well against the Indianapolis Colts. The Jaguars offense has been one of the worst in the NFL overall so far, but that's not a surprise considering they've played some of the top defenses in the NFL the past few weeks. The Jaguars offense will look to get a spark, facing off against the league's 31st ranked defense.
The Colts are still looking for their first win, having lost their last four games by at least 10 points. The Colts offense under quarterback Curtis Painter has given it a valiant effort, but rank only above the Jaguars anemic offense without Peyton Manning at the helm. The Colts have focused more on their rushing attack this season, but even still their offense has struggled. The Colts defense has been problematic as well. A defense built on speed and to play with a lead is now having to play with an offense that is ineffective and playing catch up, while teams just pound the football.
The Colts can get their first win and the Jaguars offense could turn a corner and finally help out a defense that's been one of the best in the NFL.
