Jonathan Taylor rushed 20 times for 108 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 17 loss to the Raiders, adding a six-yard reception. The 100-yard rushing effort was Taylor's 10th of the season, and seventh in eight games. The touchdown, a one-yarder with one second left in the first half, was Taylor's 20th total score of the year. Taylor did all he could to keep the Colts' offense afloat as Carson Wentz stunk up the joint, but it wasn't enough in an awful, though still not playoff-killing, loss. Taylor will almost certainly post 100-yard day No. 11 in Week 18 as the Colts take on the Jags in a contest that should punch their postseason ticket.

Trevor Lawrence completed 17-of-27 passes for 193 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in the Jaguars' 50-10, Week 17 loss to the Patriots. Lawrence was abysmal throughout a game that quickly devolved into a blowout. Lawrence's best moment of the day was 50/50 ball he chucked up to Laquon Treadwell, who made the play. Lawrence's only TD on the day, and since Week 9, was a garbage time screen pass that Dare Ogunbowale took 28 yards to the house. Lawrence's lowlights far outweighed his highlights, although his first interception wasn't his fault, with the ball bouncing off of Ryquell Armstead's hands. The next two picks were on Lawrence. He made an off-target throw to Tavon Austin and simply didn't see a defender or incorrectly read the coverage on his final interception of the day. That pick was nearly returned for a touchdown. Lawrence will finish up his disastrous rookie season as a QB3 against the Colts.

Colts vs. Jaguars Betting Prediction

The Colts are 0-6 against the spread in their last six games in Jacksonville and are 1-11-1 against the number in their last 13 games versus the Jaguars overall. The home team is also 5-2-1 at the betting window in the last 18 meetings between these two teams, while the underdog is a perfect 4-0 against the spread in the last four meetings.
