Will Andrew Luck play? Andrew Luck has been held out of practice all week and is officially listed as questionable. This designation means it is 50/50 on whether or not he will play. Jags’ fans every where are hoping he isn't able to suit up, but even if he does, it’s much better to play against an injured Andrew Luck, then to play against him healthy. If Luck doesn't play then the Jaguars will be facing a 40 year old, Matt Hasselbeck, who even when he was young had limited mobility. Either way this injury situation should make the game a bit more winnable for a Jaguars’ team that is fighting to stay in first place in their Division.
Can the Jaguars running game rebound? Indy is giving up 112 yards a game on the ground, which puts them in the bottom half of the league. The Jaguars are coming off a game in which their starting running back, T.J. Yeldon, was only able to rush for 33 yards. If the Jaguars’ running game can get going they will have a shot at slowing down the game and controlling the clock, a facet of the game that they need to improve upon as their defense was gassed last week to the tune of 51 points.
This should be a competitive match up, but with an injured Andrew Luck, or Matt Hasselbeck, who was playing in the NFL when T.Y. Hilton was 9 years old, the Jaguars should be able to play some solid defense and force turnovers. Look for the Jaguars to pound the rock in this one and wear Indy’s defense out.
Bold Prediction -- Jaguars 31, Colts 20
