Jaguars 51, Colts 16

Jaguars emphatic in ending Colts run

JACKSONVILLE — Facing fourth and goal at the 1 with 2:00 remaining, giddy fans gave Jaguars coach Gus Bradley an earful.

"We want 50! We want 50!" they chanted.

Bradley begrudgingly obliged, letting Blake Bortles put a finishing touch on Jacksonville's most complete — and maybe most important — victory in the coach's three seasons. Bortles threw for three touchdowns and ran for one on the team's final play, and the Jaguars ended the Colts' 16-game winning streak in AFC South games, a league record for consecutive division victories.

The Jaguars scored on offense, defense and special teams in a game for the first time since 2011 and set a regular-season franchise record for points in a game.

"It feel good to not have a one-possession game," Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis. "We earned that."
