2) Jacksonville Jaguars vs Indianapolis Colts, Week 14
Back to back division games give the Jacksonville Jaguars a great chance to either rise or fall. While the Tennessee Titans game will truly open the door for the Jaguars if they win, it’s the second game against the Indianapolis Colts that will put the Jaguars ahead of all the rest if they win.
After falling to the Colts 13-16 in overtime during Week 4 (in a game that should have been won if not for two missed field goals) in Indy, the Jaguars will be looking for revenge.
The Colts will have just gotten done playing the Atlanta Falcons, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Pittsburgh Steelers. Assuming they lose at least one of those games (and probably two in reality), the Jaguars could be in prime position to bump the Colts off their perch atop the division.
With stud quarterback Andrew Luck likely out for the next five games, the Jaguars will only have to contend with an aging Matt Hasselbeck at quarterback. They didn’t fare well against him earlier in the season, but if they rattle the 40-year old quarterback after he competes in more games than he has since 2012, then they could be in good shape.
It’s a winnable game on the schedule and the Jaguars could gain another all-important division win out of it.
