The 1-2 Indianapolis Colts and 0-3 Jacksonville Jaguars collide in London, England. Check here where you can watch these teams square off.
Just like 0-2 starts had become old hat for the Indianapolis Colts these last three years, dropping the season’s first three games has become somewhat traditional for the disappointing Jacksonville Jaguars.
Gus Bradley’s struggling club is 0-3 for the third time since 2013, and a franchise that has won a league-low 19 games since 2011 hopes to get back on track against the last team against whom they posted a win.
It was Week 14 in Jacksonville when the Jaguars pummeled the Colts, 51-16. Since then, Bradley’s team has dropped six games in a row, including home losses to the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens this season.
Of course, London, England is the Jaguars condo on the beach, per se. And a year ago, they held off the Buffalo Bills 34-31 in their traditional overseas tilt.
But things have not gone as planned for a franchise that spent its share of money in free agency and their first two picks in April on the defensive side of the football. To make matters worse, quarterback Blake Bortles and the Jacksonville offense are off to very shaky start. The team has already committed seven turnovers in three outings this season.
It’s also been a rough start for the Colts, who rallied in the final minutes last Sunday to beat the San Diego Chargers and get win number one in 2016. Andrew Luck and T.Y. Hilton led the comeback, but the young quarterback continues to be plagued by turnovers.

It goes without saying that this is a vitally important game for the Bradley and the Jaguars. Another loss, especially a home setback within the division, and the club may find itself in a hole nearly impossible to dig out of. Keep in mind that only the 1992 San Diego Chargers managed to erase a 0-4 start and reach the playoffs.
