The Jacksonville Jaguars came into Week 7 with a bitter taste after losing to Los Angeles at home. However, they certainly rebounded on the road on Sunday, 

The Jaguars dominated division rival, the Indianapolis Colts 27-0 in Indianapolis. 

The Jaguars entered Sunday in a three-way tie for first place in the AFC South with the Titans and Texans, while the Colts were in last place. 

Jacksonville quarterback Blake Bortles had an efficient day, completing 18 of 26 passes for 330 yards and one touchdown. 

Jag’s starting running back Leonard Fournette has an ankle injury and was not active for Sunday’s game, which gave T.J. Yeldon his first action of the 2017 season. 

Yeldon, who had led the team in rushing in each of the past two seasons, ended the game as the Jaguars leading rusher with 122 yards on 9 carries. 

The former Alabama standout ran 58 yards for a touchdown against the Colts with 5:58 left in the third quarter on Sunday. That marked Yeldon’s first touchdown of the season. 

 

The Jaguars out-gained the Colts 518 yards to 232.

Jaguars defense was dominant with 10 sacks, tying their franchise record which was set in Week 1 at Houston. They currently lead the NFL in sacks with 33.  

Jacksonville, who improves to 4-3, has a bye week before returning home to face the Cincinnati Bengals on November 5.
