[Indianapolis at Jacksonville,
Number of people still with the Jaguars in "First Team," a 96-foot-by-215-foot mural on a downtown Jacksonville building that is finally being painted over. Wide receiver Jimmy Smith is the only remaining Jaguar of the six depicted on the mural, which was painted in 1998. The others, including former Jacksonville and current Giants coach Tom Coughlin, are all gone. Is there anything finer than a game between a team that does nothing but score and a team that can't be scored upon? Indianapolis has the most points in the NFL (100), while Jacksonville has allowed the third-fewest (28).
The game most likely will turn on whether the Colts' lenient defense, which is allowing 25 points per game, can stop the Jags' flaccid offense, which is averaging just 11.7.
There's simply no comparison between the offenses. Jacksonville has put up only 35 total points, the fewest of any 3-0 team since 1970. Indianapolis scored 35 points in the first half against Green Bay last week.
The Colts' defense has been saving itself for the fourth quarter. Indianapolis has outscored teams 38-7 and has forced six of its seven turnovers in the fourth quarter. But Jacksonville, which has won twice with late-game scores, has proven it can eke out a win if the defense can keep it close.
