Colts Lose To Jaguars 19-13, Secure No. 1 Overall Pick In 2012 NFL Draft

Welcome to the Indianapolis Colts, Mr. Andrew Luck.

Despite a two-game winning streak after starting the season 0-13, the Colts managed to not screw-up their draft positioning in the final week of the 2011 regular season. A 19-13 loss to the Jaguars in Jacksonville secures the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft to Indy. That pick will most certainly be Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck, meaning the Peyton Manning era in Indianapolis could be coming to an end.

Suck 4 Luck is now complete.

As he always does, Maurice Jones-Drew destroyed the Colts defense. He rushed for 169 yards on 25 carries. The Jags became the first AFC South team to sweep the Colts since the Titans did it back in 2002.

Dan Orlovsky finished the day with 264 yards, a touchdown, and two picks. Indy's running game was non-existent, with Donald Brown and Joseph Addai averaging only 2.6 yards a carry.

In likely their final games as Colts, Robert Mathis had two tackles and a forced fumble while Reggie Wayne had 8 catches for 73 yards.

In many ways, the final score might actually count as a 'win.' The first overall pick means the Colts can rebuild their roster with premiere talent in a draft that features some real playmakers. The Colts end the season 2-14, their worst season since their 1-15 record in 1991. Hopefully, with the No. 1 overall pick, and perhaps some changes in the front office and coaching staff, the Colts can get back to being an elite franchise.
