Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts Recap JAN 3TH 2021

Jonathan Williams rushed for 116 yards, and Marlon Mack ran for 109 yards and a touchdown Sunday as the Indianapolis Colts stopped the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars 33-13, moving into a first-place tie in the AFC South with Houston.

Quarterback Jacoby Brissett ran and threw for a touchdown in the third quarter in a successful return from a knee injury that forced him to sit out last week's 16-12 loss to Miami. Brissett completed 15 of 24 passes for 148 yards.

It wasn't quite as nice a return for Jacksonville quarterback Nick Foles, making his first start since a broken clavicle in a Week 1 loss to Kansas City. Foles hit on 33 of 47 passes for 296 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.

Things started well for the Jaguars (4-6). On their second possession, Foles found DJ Chark over the middle for a 34-yard touchdown pass and a 7-0 lead at the 6:53 mark of the first quarter. But that was it for the Jacksonville offense until garbage time.

Indianapolis (6-4) equalized with 35 seconds left in the first. Mack went up the middle, bounced off the pile and found a path to the end zone off right tackle on a 13-yard run.

Adam Vinatieri gave the Colts a 10-7 lead on a 34-yard field goal just before the midway point of the second quarter. They blew the game open in the third quarter as Brissett finished off a pair of lengthy drives.

Brissett flipped a 1-yard touchdown pass to Marcus Johnson on fourth-and-goal with 8:46 remaining, then upped the margin to 24-7 when he rushed for a 5-yard score in the final minute of the quarter.

Nyheim Hines ended the game's competitive phase with a 7-yard touchdown run just over two minutes into the fourth quarter. Foles hit Chark with a 20-yard scoring strike with 59 seconds left, and Indianapolis' Bobby Okereke scored a defensive two-point conversion off an interception.

The Colts travel to the Texans on Thursday night for a first-place showdown in the division.

Could Sunday be the last hurrah for veteran quarterback Philip Rivers?

Addressing the uncertain nature beyond the host Indianapolis Colts' Week 17 game against the skidding Jacksonville Jaguars, Rivers acknowledged the thought crossed his mind.

With the Colts (10-5) needing a victory against the Jaguars (1-14) plus a loss from either the Cleveland Browns (10-5), Baltimore Ravens (10-5), Miami Dolphins (10-5) or Tennessee Titans (10-5) to make the AFC playoffs, Indianapolis' postseason prospects aren't the only "What if" swirling around town.

"I guess it's probably healthy to have that thought because, shoot, you're not guaranteed anything moving forward," Rivers said. "But to think it could be the last game, the last game I ever play, certainly. I don't intend it will be, I don't hope that it is, but you have to acknowledge it is a possibility."

Rivers, 39, signed a one-year contract with the Colts in the offseason following a 16-season career with the Chargers franchise. Still, coach Frank Reich admitted this season he could see the Colts bringing Rivers back, were he interested.

Behind Rivers' 23 touchdowns and 68.2 completion percentage against just 10 interceptions -- half his total from 2019 -- the Colts rank eighth in the NFL in passing yards per game (259.3) and ninth in scoring at 28.2 points per game.

Rivers will aim to stay upright Sunday with a shuffled offensive line. The Colts, who are coming off a 28-24 loss at Pittsburgh in Week 16, announced Wednesday that left tackle Anthony Castonzo (knee) will be out for the remainder of the season.

Jacksonville earned its lone win of 2020 with a 27-20 home victory against the Colts in the season opener. Rivers was 36 of 46 for 363 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, outshined by Jaguars counterpart Gardner Minshew II, who had one incompletion in 20 attempts while passing for173 yards and three touchdowns.

Jaguars rookie running back James Robinson rushed for 62 yards on 16 carries in his NFL debut en route to a 1,070-yard, seven-touchdown season that ultimately was cut short. After missing Jacksonville's Week 16 home loss to Chicago with a left ankle injury that hampered him the previous week, the Jaguars announced Wednesday that Robinson would be shut down for the remainder of the season.

Robinson fell just 35 yards shy of breaking the league rushing record for an undrafted rookie.

"I could never, ever say enough about that guy, how hard he's tried," Jaguars coach Doug Marrone said. "He wants to come back. He wants to play."

The same could be said for a healthy Minshew, but Marrone has confirmed that veteran Mike Glennon will start under center in the season finale, completing a quarterback carousel that saw Minshew, rookie Jake Luton and Glennon split starts after Minshew started the first seven games.

Glennon was 24-for-37 for 211 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in a 41-17 loss to the Bears, and he figures to have a depleted core of weapons against the Colts. Marrone said wide receiver Collin Johnson (hamstring) would be out Sunday, while fellow wideout D.J. Chark (shin) didn't practice Wednesday.
