NFL preview tonight: Indianapolis Colts at Jacksonville Jaguars

. Tonight

Colts at Jaguars

8:20, NFL Network, 1010-AM (pick up at 9)

Line: Colts by 3

The scoop: Someone wake me when a team decides to consistently challenge the Colts in the AFC South. As it stands, no one seems capable. Don't the Jaguars seem as far away from Indy's level as they ever have? Yes, the Titans unseated the Colts last season. But they came quickly crashing back to earth, their recent turnaround notwithstanding. So because the division race really isn't a race, this game becomes a test of whether the Colts can keep their perfect record going. Somehow, the Colts keep winning despite their inefficiencies. Joseph Addai was unspectacular again with 67 rushing yards Sunday against the Broncos while Peyton Manning completed just 48 percent of his attempts. Yet they managed to win by double digits. Go figure.

Holder's pick: Colts 26, Jaguars 17.
