At 8-5, the Jacksonville Jaguars are one game up on the 7-6 Indianapolis Colts, with a showdown looming Sunday, December 19, at Indianapolis Lucas Oil Field. The Jaguars can secure a playoff spot if they defeat the Colts, which makes it a must win game for Indianapolis.
“It’s our second consecutive playoff game,” said Colts veteran quarterback. Last week the Colts needed to defeat the Tennessee Titans to stay alive in the division, and they did 30-28, and they need to win out to go to the playoffs. After Jacksonville they go to Oakland and face the Raiders, and then finish the season with a home game against the Tennessee Titans. If Jacksonville and the Colts should tie for the division title, the Colts would win based on their better winning percentage against league competition.
Manning said the Colts will not prepare any differently than normal. “People seem to think we haven’t played any meaningful games in December, and that’s just not true. We’ve had a lot of important games throughout the month of December that have been for the division, or just to stay alive for home field advantage, or whatever it may be. That’s the approach and that’s how we have to prepare, with that same sense of urgency.”
