The Jacksonville Jaguars have had no trouble beating the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6. In fact, the game wasn't as close as the 37-20 score may indicate. Not only did the Jags manage to keep their winning streak at EverBank Stadium alive but they also swept their division foes, a feat they hadn't pulled off since 2017.
Early in the game, it looked like the Colts were going to give Jacksonville fits. Their offense marched down 65 yards on their first drive and the Jags seemingly had no answer. However, they quickly woke up and limited Indy to just a field goal. Things went downhill for the Colts after that drive.
Their offense could no longer move the ball with ease and the Jaguars' defense registered four turnovers (three interceptions and one forced fumble). Looking back, the Colts' opening possession was an outlier and not the sign of things to come.
The Jags went on to win the game and are now in sole possession of the top spot in the AFC South. Here are three takeaways from the game.
3. Jetlag was no issue for the Jaguars in Week 6
One concern following the Jaguars' win over the Buffalo Bills was whether they would have any jetlag following a 10-day trip to London. Looking at their performance in Week 6, it was no issue at all. There were no crucial mistakes or lack of execution. In fact, you wouldn't be able to tell Jacksonville had played overseas based on the final score of the game.
Last year, the Jags beat the Las Vegas Raiders after returning from London. They did it again this season. Moving forward, other clubs will most likely follow Jacksonville's blueprint for traveling.
