It’s winner takes all.
The Jaguars (8-5) haven’t won a division title or hosted a playoff game since 1999, while the Colts (7-6) haven’t missed the playoffs since 2001. If the Jags find a way to beat Indy on Sunday, they’ll need to win only one of their last two games against Washington and Houston to clinch the AFC?South.
The Jags are 2-6 in Indy since ’02, but Maurice Jones-Drew led them to a 31-28 win in Week 4. We’ll take Peyton?Manning, though, with his back against the wall vs. an average defense.
The Pick: IND?30, JAC?21
Since joining New Orleans in 2006, Drew Brees has thrown for 22,153 yards and 150 touchdowns, becoming the first NFL?QB to pass for at least 20,000 yards and 150 touchdowns in the first five seasons with a new team.
Player to watch:
Jimmy Graham, TE, Saints The rookie is quickly becoming one of Drew Brees’ favorite targets. The Ravens’ D looked gassed Monday in Houston, so look for the 6-foot-6 Graham to make key grabs.
