1. Gardner Minshew didn't catch a break vs. the Jaguars defense

Minshew Mania seems like a distant memory but Gardner Minshew was such a spark for the Jaguars in 2019 that his return to EverBank Stadium was one of the biggest storylines surrounding the game. Taking over for Anthony Richardson, who could potentially be out for the season with a shoulder, Minshew faced his old team in Week 6 and he fell flat.

Even though the Colts' offense got off to a solid start, advancing 65 yards on their opening drive, the Jaguars defense gave up just a field goal. It wasn't until the third quarter that Indianapolis scored their first touchdown of the game. Leaving aside, their first possession, the Colts didn't have much offensive success. The Jaguars defense deserves lots of credit though. The unit had four takeaways and didn't give Minshew nor the Indianapolis running game room to breath.

Outside linebacker Josh Allen had a strip sack that defensive end Angelo Blackson recovered and K'Lavon Chaisson registered his second sack of the year. For their part, cornerback Darious Williams, and safeties Rayshawn Jenkins and Andre Cisco all had an interception.

Jonathan Taylor and Zack Moss were non-factors. The pair were supposed to give the Jags' front four a headache and help Indy win the possession battle but instead had less than 50 yards on the ground.

In the second half, the Jags allowed the Colts to score a couple of touchdowns. But by then, the game was already out of reach. They stopped them when it mattered the most and when Indy attempted a comeback, it was too late.
