18 Things to Watch for During Sunday’s Jags/Colts Game

There’s a real culture clash on display at the Luke on Sunday

Last week, the Colts got back on the right track with a win over the Titans, but that still makes this week’s showdown with the Jags a must win in the strictest sense of the word.  It’s always a war when these two teams play, so don’t expect anything less this time.  With the AFC South title on the line, be sure to watch for:

1. Watch the culture clash. The Colts and Jaguars are built with opposing philosophies on both sides of the ball.
