The Indianapolis Colts are heavily favored to top the Jacksonville Jaguars today in their week 17 NFL regular season finale, and by doing so keep their chances at a first-round playoffs bye alive. Indianapolis looks to hold their third straight opponent under 10 points when we watch Jaguars vs Colts online free live streaming on CBS Sports.
Indianapolis (10-5) played much of its season alternating between wins and loses, and in most cases the wins were big and the losses were blowouts. Over the past two games they have sprung to life and become a dominant force that will not be content making the playoffs, as they already have, but seeks to advance deep into them and perhaps emerge from the AFC and reach the Super Bowl.
Two weeks ago the Colts took on the Houston Texans and walloped them by a score of 25-3. That final score wasn’t overly surprising given the struggles the Texans have had, but it’s still an accomplishment to hold an NFL football team to only a field goal no matter what their record is. Then last week they pounded the Chiefs at home 23-7 and raised eyebrows around the league that they mean business.
The scenario for the Colts to nab the second seed in the AFC is quite simple. They must beat the Jaguars, which they should, and then hope that the Ravens can beat the Bengals and the Bills top the Patriots. The latter is unlikely to happen, which would mean the Colts would not earn a first-round bye and would end up playing a wild card team. Watch Colts vs Jaguars online streaming live free on CBS today to see the Colts can win their third straight.
Jacksonville (4-11) has had little go right this year aside from a three-game winning streak to boost their record to where it is now. However, over the past couple games their opponents have averaged 190 yards running the ball and seemingly moved the chains at will. Despite giving up huge yardage, the Jags lost the last two games by a combined 11 points so they are playing competitive football.
The Colts defense, having given up a total of 10 points in their last two wins, should have no problems handling a Jacksonville offense that is last in the league in scoring at 15.8 points per game, and also dead last in total offense at 290.1 yards per game. I doubt they’ll notch a shutout, but I expect the Colts to throw up a brick wall in front of the Jags.
