Can the finally win their first game? If they are destined to win this year, this will be the week. The Colts host the on November 13 in what is a very winnable football game. Colts fans have struggled to deal with playing without . At 0-9 on the season there are few chances left at getting a win. The 2-6 Jaguars present a great opportunity for them.
Indianapolis often gets beaten badly by Jacksonville’s running game. The Colts’ defense has been terrible at defending against the run. Frankly, the defense has been terrible at everything this year. . Only two teams in NFL history have been worse. This statistic is greatly affected by the to the . Colt fans have been subject to several blowout losses lately though.
One big reason the Colts can defeat the Jaguars is the poor play of quarterback . Gabbert has not played well at all in his rookie season. and will need to break out of their slumps and put pressure on Gabbert.
While they do have the look of an 0-16 team, every fan wants to see the team win at least one game. The talent is certainly there, they just need to put it all together for a full game. I think and hope that this is just the week.
Veteran center to address the team on their winless season. The players in the locker room are not used to losing and this shows that they still care and are certainly not tanking the season in hopes of the number one draft pick. As great as Andrew Luck may someday be, these players want to win badly and have too much pride to not give it everything they have in an attempt to win this season. Going 0-16 is an embarrassment and something no professional player wants on their resume.
I’m predicting the first win of the season this week for the Colts. They will finally rally behind the veterans on the team and win the game on a late field goal by veteran kicker . This will still keep the team in the suck for luck sweepstakes.
Prediction: Colts 20, Jaguars 17
