After knocking off the San Francisco 49ers at Candlestick Park in Week 3, the Indianapolis Colts should cruise past the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

The Colts are now 2-1, tied with the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans atop the AFC South. 

Indy is loaded with offensive weapons. Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton and Darrius Heyward-Bey give Andrew Luck a formidable trio of receivers to work with, and his old college roommate Coby Fleener is no slouch at the tight end position. 

And, with the addition of Trent Richardson, offensive coordinator Pep Hamilton finally has the personnel he needs to run a power-based offense that can punish opposing defenses.

On the other side, Jacksonville is a lock to pick in the top five of next year's NFL draft—if not the top pick altogether. The Jaguars have yet to even sniff a win this year, and there isn't much hope of improving the team's winless record this weekend. 

Here's what you need to know about the upcoming game.

Will Blaine Gabbert Spark Jacksonville's Offense?

After missing the past couple of games with a lacerated hand, Gabbert will once again start at quarterback for the Jaguars, as noted by Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union:

During his absence, veteran backup Chad Henne managed to throw for just one touchdown pass while throwing two interceptions, and the Jaguars were beaten badly in both his starts.

Gabbert hasn't exactly been a spark plug when he has played the past few years, and he failed to throw a touchdown in Week 1 while throwing two picks. 

The way Indianapolis' defense shut down Colin Kaepernick and the vaunted 49ers offense last weekend, it's hard to imagine Gabbert will have much success this Sunday.

 

Prediction

The Jaguars don't have the firepower on offense to keep up with Indy's balanced attack.

You should expect a heavy dose of Richardson in the second half, because the Colts will go up large before halftime. 

Gabbert will likely turn the ball over once or twice, which will doom the Jaguars' slim chances. Making matters worse is the fact that Maurice Jones-Drew looks about as explosive this year as Michael Turner did last season for the Atlanta Falcons. 

The Colts will win easily. 

 

Final Score 

Colts win 30-13
