Jacksonville Jaguars beat Indianapolis Colts 31-21 in season opener

Newly-added receiver Calvin Ridley caught his first touchdown as a Jag in the first quarter.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. β€” While we are pumped to see the Jaguars go up against the Indianapolis Colts, the reality is the Colts have owned the Jags as of late.

In fact, the big cats have lost to the Colts in nine out of the last ten games.

Last year in one matchup when the Jags squared off against the Colts, Jaguars Head Coach Doug Pederson's team struck first and led 14-13 at the half.

But, Indianapolis found a way to edge Jacksonville with a 34-27 victory. But that was then, and this is now, and Pederson feels good about his team's chances Sunday.

Despite the excitement to get after it for the season, Pederson says it's important not to forget the goal. He knows the week one matchup won't be a breeze.

The Colts have a new secret weapon which they're planning on using for the season opener: Rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson.

Richardson is the Colts' QB1, and Pederson says he's watched how he plays and knows going up against him and the Colts' offense won't be an easy task.

The Jaguars have four players on the list of inactive players against the Colts:

  • Rookie wide receiver Parker Washington
  • Rookie wide receiver Elijah Cooks
  • Rookie cornerback Christian Braswell
  • Running back JaMycal Hasty
