Unable to win in the Continental U.S., the Jaguars have made there way to London overnight to play the Colts.
At 0-3, it’s a tenuous time in Jacksonville as fourth year Head Coach Gus Bradley is under fire for his overall record and the 2016 slow start. Here’s the team getting ready for workout on Friday morning after their overnight flight:

The Jaguars are 1-2 in previous London games, but did have a stirring 34-31 rally a year ago over Buffalo at Wembley Stadium.
Our Chris Fischer worked the sideline for their game last Sunday for CBS and did not like what he saw in one area from QB Blake Bortles. That must improve against what has been a shaky Colts defense in three games so far. Then again, Indy put on a rally last week and could have won all three of their games while being 1-2.
Meanwhile, speculation has been that if the Jags lose Sunday morning U.S. time that Owner Shad Khan will take advantage of the bye week and make a coaching change after they return from the U.K. That would likely mean a switch to current Assistant Head Coach Doug Marrone, who was the former Bills Head Coach.
It will depend on how Jacksonville looks , or doesn’t look (like being down 35-0 in San Diego two weeks ago) and if the owner thinks it will spark the team’s final 12 games.
For now, it’s time to see if a change of everything: trans Atlantic flight, five time zones ahead, British culture, accents, and overcast cool weather, etc. will do Jacksonville some good this weekend.
