    They can off-set that by designating Bortles

    This article probably feels familiar since the first installment just ran three weeks ago , but we’re here to give you the most accurate and current information possible, so you remained informed. This is the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts series history recap, round two. The two teams recently met in Indianapolis in Week 10, where the Colts held on for a victory (more on that later). The two teams have been going in opposite directions this season, as the Jaguars started strong, but have dropped seven straight games, while Indy started poorly, but has won its last five games. Let’s jump right back into it. Series historyAll-time regular season series record: Colts lead 23-12All-time postseason record: N/ALast Jaguars win: Dec. 3, 2017 (30-10)Last Colts win: Nov. 11, 2018 (29-26)Current Streak: Colts with a one-game winning streakBiggest Jaguars win: 51-16 (Dec. 13, 2015)Biggest Colts win: 43-14 (Sept. 25, 2000)Interesting takeaway: The Jaguars are just 7-10 all-time as the home team in the series, but have won the previous three home meetings, including as the designated “home” team in London in 2016. Quick thoughts: The Jaguars have defeated the Colts in four of the past six contests, but Indianapolis had won all six games prior to that. Looking at the full history, the Jags and Colts only met twice prior to the conference realignment in 2002. Indianapolis (AFC East), beat Jacksonville (AFC Central), in both of those contests. Then the Colts won the next three games while both teams began competition in the AFC South. Jacksonville finally got its first win against Indy in 2003, and another one the next season in 2004. The Colts hold a large advantage overall, but since 2011 the Colts have won eight and the Jaguars have won seven, so it’s been a lot more competitive as of late. Overall, the Colts have been a much more successful franchise with a 512-458-7 (about .530 winning percentage) all-time record compared to the Jaguars with anow 168-211 (.443) record. In less playoff games, the Jaguars have a slightly better record (7-7 Jacksonville Jaguars Customized Jerseys , .500) than the Colts (22-23, .489). Previous MatchupWinner: ColtsScore: 29-26Date: Nov. 11, 2018Location: Lucas Oil Stadium, IndianapolisTeam Stats: Jaguars — 324 passing yards, 91 rushing yards, 24 first downsColts — 285 passing yards, 81 rushing yards, 17 first downsQuick recap: This was a tale of two halves. The Colts hung 29 points on the Jaguars in the first half, and led by 13 at halftime. The Jaguars then shut out Indianapolis in the second half and doubled their score to make it 29-26 deep into the fourth quarter. The Jags had their chance to tie or take the lead late in the game and deep into Colts territory, but Rashad Greene Sr. fumbled the ball at the Indianapolis 24-yard line with about a minute-and-a-half to go. The Colts then kneeled out the clock. This was arguably Blake Bortles’ best performance of the season (besides maybe the the New England game), as he finished the game 26-38 for 320 yards with two touchdowns and zero picks — actually, Bortles often plays well against the Colts, but we obviously won’t see that this week. Winner: JaguarsScore: 30-10Date: Dec. 3, 2017Location: EverBank Field, JacksonvilleTeam Stats: Jaguars — 338 passing yards, 96 rushing yards, 22 first downsColts — 174 passing yards, 141 rushing yards, 17 first downsQuick recap: Blake Bortles tends to beat up on the Colts, and he did so twice in 2017. On this particular day, Bortles completed 74 percent of passes for 309 yards, two touchdowns and zero turnovers. Leonard Fournette added a touchdown, and Josh Lambo tacked on a couple of field goals. A lot of wide receivers got involved with Marqise Lee securing seven catches for 86 yards and a touchdown Jacksonville Jaguars T-Shirts , while Keelan Cole had 49 receiving yards and a score, and Dede Westbrook added six catches for 78 yards. The defense had a strong performance with four sacks and two interceptions. Brad Nortman even completed a pass. It was a great all-around performance — man, I miss 2017.Through the Decades1990s: Colts 1-0 (1995)2000-2010: Colts lead 14-52011-Present: Colts lead 8-7Quick thoughts: While the Colts dominated early, winning eight of the first 10 matchups overall, it is the Jaguars that have been making a comeback. The Colts held the advantage in the 1990s (granted, that was only one game in Jacksonville’s first year as a competing NFL franchise) and early 2000s, but Jacksonville has closed the gap. As mentioned earlier, the series is 8-7 Colts since 2011, and since 2008, Indy’s advantage is just 12-9. Indianapolis easily dominated from 2000 through 2010, which gives them the lopsided advantage in the series overall. Heading into the second meeting of 2018, I have no idea what to expect. The Jaguars have fired offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett and benched Blake Bortles. Meanwhile Leonard Fournette is suspended for the game, Andrew Norwell was placed on IR and Jalen Ramsey may not play. I am not even sure how this team can compete this week, but the NFL is strange sometimes, and if the Colts are looking past the Jaguars (I doubt it) an upset can ensue. Does Jacksonville even stand a chance in this one? Let us know. Barring injury, Blake Bortles has probably played his last down for the Jacksonville Jaguars as the starting quarterback. Head coach Doug Marrone announced on Monday that Cody Kessler would be the starting quarterback against the Indianapolis Colts and I’d have to think that outside of a Nathan Peterman level performance, Kessler will likely be the Jaguars starting quarterback for the remainder of the season.That means that Bortles’ Jaguars career would effectively be over and done with.With the team making the move now to bench Bortles, for the second time this season, as the actual starter it means they no longerview him as a long term viable option at the position, regardless of the contract or cap hit that he has. The Jaguars gave Bortles a three-year extension last offseason, as the team was as Tom Coughlin put it “a whistle away” from the Super Bowl. The team gave Bortles a three-year, $54 million deal with $26.5 million guaranteed, including a $15 million signing bonus.The biggest question now is what do the Jaguars do with Bortles and can they get out of his contract? Can they afford to simply cut him? More or less , yes, they can. The Jaguars are going to have to make some decisions on the defensive line next season, but they can clear a lot of cap room very quickly which will afford them the ability to eat the dead money from Bortles’ contract, especially if they plan on picking a quarterback in the first round. If the team moves on from Bortles by straight up releasing him this offseason, they’ll save $4.5 million on the cap but also have to eat $16.5 million in dead money. They can off-set that by designating Bortles a post-June 1 cut, making the total cap savings $9.5 million and the dead money $11.5 million in 2019 and $5 million in 2020, but they don’t get that extra cap space until after June 1, which is well after the NFL Draft and free agency.The Bortles era however, is over. It was a wild roller coaster ride of an era, to be perfectly honest. It sucks that Blake was not successful, because he seems like a genuine “one of us” kind of guys and he always busted his ass. I will never ever fault Bortles for that, he was a gamer and always tried his hardest and never backed away from the music. He simply just wasn’t good enough when you boil it all down. He needed perfect situations to function and as soon as things went awry, you could see the downturn coming. The 2015 season, even though they got their face pushed in a lot, will always be fun. The Jaguars had a quarterback who was second in the NFL in touchdown passes. How insane is that? I don’t care that a lot of them were meaningless garbage touchdowns, they were still touchdowns and 35 touchdowns is still 35 touchdowns. The 2017 season will always be magical. Everything aligned. When Blake had his Blake games, the defense drug him to wins. When the defense had some struggles, Blake played with a horseshoe up his ass and put up points. He went toe-to-toe with the Steelers in Pittsburgh in the playoffs and was a drive away from putting the team in the Super Bowl against the Patriots in Foxboro. Dave Caldwell and the like gambled big on being able to repeat 2017 and it blew up in their face, spectacularly. While the Bortles era certainly wasn’t good, it was very fun for some big chunks of it and I think Blake as a person, because of his personality, will always be remembered fondly.
