Jacksonville Jaguars snap losing streak at Lucas Oil Stadium with 31-21 win over Colts

INDIANAPOLIS — The Jacksonville Jaguars put an end to their five-game losing streak at Lucas Oil Stadium, defeating the Indianapolis Colts 31-21. Tank Bigsby and Travis Etienne Jr. were the stars of the show, each scoring crucial touchdowns in the final quarter to seal the win.

Rookie quarterback Anthony Richardson had a promising but ultimately disappointing debut for the Colts, throwing a critical interception that led to Etienne’s game-ending touchdown.

Tank Bigsby and Travis Etienne Jr. – A Dynamic Duo

Tank Bigsby had a rollercoaster of a game, making a rookie mistake that nearly cost the Jaguars. However, he redeemed himself with a 1-yard touchdown run that gave Jacksonville the lead with just over five minutes left in the game.

Travis Etienne Jr. capitalized on Richardson’s interception, running 26 yards for a touchdown that put the game out of reach for the Colts.

Richardson’s Debut: A Mixed Bag

Anthony Richardson, the third-youngest quarterback to start a season opener in NFL history, had a solid but flawed debut. He completed 24 of 37 passes for 223 yards and a touchdown but threw a costly interception that led to Jacksonville’s game-sealing touchdown.

Richardson also led the Colts in rushing but had to leave the game due to a knee injury.

Ridley’s Return to the Gridiron

Calvin Ridley made a notable return, catching eight passes for 101 yards and a touchdown. Ridley had been out of action since October 2021, missing the entire 2022 season due to a suspension for violating the league’s gambling policy. His performance indicates that he could be a key asset for the Jaguars moving forward.
