The Jacksonville Jaguars will have a chance to prove in Week 10 that their 9-6 win over the Buffalo Bills was no fluke. They will take on an Indianapolis Colts team that has some pretty talented players.
Although Indy currently holds a 4-5 record, there are different things that they do well. Their offense ranks seventh in the NFL in points scored, and they are the second-best at forcing turnovers with 20. Also, their defense lead the league in fumbles lost with 10. Trevor Lawrence and the rest of the Jaguars’ offense will have to play significantly better than they did last week. Simply, nine points won’t do against the Colts.
The other side of the coin is that all Indianapolis’ wins this season have come against teams with a losing record. If the Jaguars’ defense performs the way they did in Week 9, they may have a shot at pulling the upset.
Here are five Colts that could make it difficult for the Jaguars to win their third game of the season.
Colts player the Jaguars must keep an eye on No. 1 – WR Michael Pittman Jr.
Quarterback Carson Wentz has several weapons at his disposal. but his best one is wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. The USC product has gone on to become the Colts’ number one option in the passing game, hauling in 50 receptions for 658 yards and five touchdowns this season.
Stopping him will be a big priority for the Jaguars, that’s why they will probably task cornerback Shaquill Griffin to travel him for most of the game.
