The Jacksonville Jaguars will have to wait an extra few hours to take on the Indianapolis Colts in Week 17.
Due to the ownership of the AFC South title between the Colts and the Tennessee Titans, the Jaguars rematch with the Colts has officially been postponed to 4:25 pm starting week 1
If the Titans had won against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, the Jaguars and Colts would have started at 1 p.m. as originally planned. With Green Bay dominating the Titans with a 40-14 blowout, the two teams will meet later that afternoon.
Jacksonville (1-14) opened up as an underdog with -14 points against Indianapolis (10-5). The Colts are the only team to have beaten the Jaguars this season, a 27:20 surprise in Jacksonville in Week 1 on September 13th.
But since then, the Jaguars have had the longest losing streak in franchise history, sacking their general manager and completely shuffling the quarterback room. Now the Jaguars are # 1 owners in the standings while the Colts are still fighting for a place in the playoffs.
The Jaguars also beat the Colts in Week 17 last year, despite that game being held in Jacksonville. Now the Jaguars must try to figure out a way to score a road win in what will likely be head coach Doug Marrone’s final game at the helm of the franchise.
“We can fight that long and then we just have to go ahead and get 60 minutes out. We have one game left. As I told the team, I told them after the 2020 game was over.” We all know that, “said Marone after the loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday (41:17).
“I said but the way I see it we have a game in 2021. So let’s make this change. Let’s just change this thing. I think these guys take care of each other in the dressing room. They are. It’s difficult comforting each other. But there aren’t a lot of people pointing their fingers either. You don’t get people who want to get out of the game. You get people who go in there and try. We just don’t do plays and we end up We don’t play well enough during the day. It’s up to all of us. “
