The results are in, and you, the Horseshoe faithful, have spoken ahead of this week’s Indianapolis Colts (3-2) Week 6 road matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2) (-4) with the top of the AFC South presently at stake.

Last weekend, Colts star running back Jonathan Taylor made his season debut after being activated off of PUP and ending a lengthy contract dispute with a new multi-year extension.
While the Colts are expected to increase Taylor’s workload this weekend against the Jaguars—having ramped up his activity in practice earlier this week, 83% of the Horseshoe faithful believe that Zack Moss will lead the team in carries this week:
