NFL Week Three: Jacksonville Jaguars (0-2) At Indianapolis Colts (1-1)- Preview

Like last week, this is another game that this young Colts team should win. Not can win. Not might win. Should. It's games like these that test just how effective Chuck Pagano is at communicating his message. All offseason, preseason, and for much this young regular season Pagano has preached an underdog mantra. He even went so far as to give shirts to players to remind them of where people ranked the team (Hint: Dead Last).

Against the Jaguars, that message won't work.

Jacksonville is an inferior team. The Colts are favored, and they are the better team. That is no slight to Jacksonville's defense (which is excellent), but quarterback Blaine Gabbert has struggled these first two games. Maurice Jones-Drew will see more action, but he is still only three weeks removed from a lengthy holdout. If the Colts run defense has indeed improved, they will control MJD and win.

Start Time: 1:00 p.m. ET

Place: Lucas Oil Stadium; Indianapolis, IN

Weather:

JAGUARS vs. COLTS - Sunday, 1 P.M., CBS
FORECAST - Mostly sunny and cool; winds: WNW 5-15 mph
Kickoff – 57
Half Time - 59
Second Half – 61

So, it seems like a good chance that the roof will be open.

Score Projection: Colts 28, Jaguars 20
