Week 17: Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts
The Indianapolis Colts are one of the few teams the Jags have actually beaten in 2016. Beating them again, in their own house, will be incredibly impressive.
Andrew Luck is playing his heart out while the rest of the team seemingly deserts him. That hasn’t been enough for the team, though, and they’ve fallen below .500 at this point in the season and are struggling to get their nose above water.
Does that mean this one is winnable? Maybe. It’s more of a toss up than anything.
Head coaches Gus Bradley and Chuck Pagano both looked like they wanted to lose in Week 4. With pretty much nothing left on the line at this point in the season, it’s possible neither of them will have their teams ready to go. I’ll give it to the Jags in a sloppy game nobody wants to win.

Jaguars predicted record after Week 17: 4-12
4-12 is hardly the record the Jaguars would like to have at this point in an extensive rebuild. The games left on the schedule, however, don’t make it appear likely they could do much better. There are too many games left that could easily go against the Jaguars. Even the optimism above can’t hide that.
Unfortunately for us Jaguars fans, that’s about what we can expect. It’s been a long struggle in 2016, but it’s almost over and the end result, like the earlier part of the season, likely won’t be pretty.
