Jaguars Vs. Colts Score Update: Defense Stays Strong As Jags Take 10-3 Lead Into Halftime

The Jacksonville Jaguars are hosting the Indianapolis Colts in the final week of the NFL season. Both teams are showing strong defense early on, with significant drives being halted on both sides.

The Colts had started a drive at the tail end of the first quarter. They continued that drive into the second quarter, with Dan Orlovsky leading Indianapolis 54 yards downfield on 14 plays. The Colts ended up having to settle for a 48-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri to cut the Jags lead to 7-3.

On the following Jacksonville possession, quarterback Blaine Gabbert was sacked, leading to a fumble that was recovered by the Colts in Jags territory. The Jaguars answered back with a big stop of Delone Carter on 4th and 1 to force a turnover on downs and take over once again. They went three and out on that possession and were forced to punt.

The Jags were able to put together another deep drive late in the second quarter, getting into the Indianapolis red zone with less than 2:00 left in the half. They were once again stopped on third down and opted for a field goal to extend their lead to 10-3, which is where things stand at halftime.
