The consecutive number of wins the Jaguars have over the Colts. Revenge should be on the minds of the Colts this week. Jacksonville has struggled mightily against the rest of the NFL lately. In their last 21 games, the Jaguars are 2-0 against the Colts and 2-17 versus the rest of the NFL.
I used yards per game and compared the colts vs the opponent and that didn’t quite tell the whole story. I looked how many carries we had too. If we had more carries we won if we didn’t we lost. The only two games that disproved my theory were against the Texans Week 6 and the titans week 7.
The Jaguars have beaten the Colts the last two times these teams have met. Those losses (one this past October and the other last December) were pivotal in the Colts missing the playoffs the past two years.
Even though Mathis will no longer be part of the playing family of the Colts, his impact and longevity is unparalleled.

Of all the pillar Colts this franchise has had over the past 20 years, Mathis is the only one to have never donned another uniform in a game or practice.
“They gave me the opportunity of a lifetime to start,” Mathis said of the Colts selecting him in the fifth round of the 2003 NFL Draft, “and to end in the same place, in one place, that is something a whole lot of guys, a whole lot of greats are not able to say.
“I appreciate it to the utmost that they have given me the opportunity to play 14 seasons in one place.”
Watching Mathis speak on Friday, it was clear this decision was not an easy one.
While Mathis’ family gets to see more of their father and husband, football has provided him a bevy of unforgettable moments.
And Jim Irsay confirmed the obvious: Robert Mathis will one day be inducted into the Colts Ring of Honor.
Friday is Robert Mathis’ day at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center.
Following the final practice of the week, Mathis speaks to the media. The answers aren’t long in quantity, but they come from the heart.
That’s Mathis. Quiet by definition, but plenty loud once third-down rolls around.

The same quiet Mathis spoke on Friday. This message perked ears up though—Sunday will be the final game for the Colts’ all-time sack leader.
Joe Reitz retired. Jonotthan Harrison was not re-signed (Harrison has moved on to the Jets). Brian Schwenke was added to provide some depth/competition in the interior of the line.
Why the lack of activity in the offensive trenches?
It’s because Ballard has been pleasantly surprised by what the tape has shown him.
Ballard believes the future is bright involving the current offensive line personnel.
“The O-line is very young, but I think it has a chance to really grow,” Ballard says. “It’s been fun to watch that group work together.
“They are all in the building working together. That’s what you want. It’s never about one guy. I think that’s part of the misconception on the O-line. That it’s about one guy. It’s about those five guys playing together. They’ve all been in town, all their workouts they are doing them together. And that’s been fun to see.”
