The Jacksonville Jaguars defense shut down the Indianapolis Colts in a 17-7 win in the first round of the B/R GOAT Madden Sim Tournament.  

Wide receiver Allen Robinson II and running back Fred Taylor scored Jacksonville's touchdowns.

Colts quarterback Peyton Manning found his favorite target, wide receiver Marvin Harrison, with a 15-yard score with six seconds remaining.

The tournament features each franchise's best historical players, grouped together on all-time teams and placed into a 32-team bracket to decide which NFL franchise features the top collection of talent.

The tournament will have games daily through April 10 before the April 13 championship. All games are on B/R's Twitch.

Recap

The Jaguars appeared to hand momentum on a silver platter to the Colts with this failed fake field-goal attempt:

But the Colts could not take advantage.

Both sides nearly went into halftime scoreless before Robinson hauled in an eight-yard touchdown pass late in the second quarter:

The Jags got a second-half field goal to go up 10-0 before Taylor put this one away thanks to a 39-yard scamper for the score:

Manning's touchdown to Harrison closed the scoring, albeit too late to salvage any chance at winning:

Jacksonville will advance to the second round to play the winner of the Tennessee Titans vs. Houston Texans matchup. That one will take place on Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on Twitch.
