What to Watch for: Colts @ Jaguars
The Return of Allen Hurns -- Allen Hurns returns after just one week from what looked liked a career threatening injury, that ended up being just a concussion. This means the Jaguars will have their receiving corp at full strength, save Bryan Walters, for one of the first times in a long time. They will feature the Brothers Allen, Julius Thomas, Marqise Lee, and Rashad Greene. Blake Bortles should have no problem picking apart a Colts’ defense that gave up 364 yards and 4 touchdowns through the air just one week ago.
The Man in the Middle -- The Jaguars will be with out their Pro-Bowl middle linebacker, Paul Posluszny, who suffered a fractured right hand in the Jaguars’ 42-39 loss to the Titans last week. Earlier this season, against Tampa, when the Jaguars were also without “The Poz” it cost them the game, as they were unable to contain Doug Martin with back up Thurston Armbrister forced into the starting lineup. The Jaguars’ defense will need to step up and contain the run if they hope to compete this week. If they are able to contain Frank Gore and the Colts’ run game, it will go a long way towards a Jags’ victory.
With so many storylines, its easy to forget that the Jaguars are actually still mathematically in the hunt for the AFC South crown. If they can beat the Colts this week, they will still have a chance — if they cannot then fans and media alike will begin looking towards free agency and the draft.
