If the Jacksonville Jaguars are able to rally Sunday and pull an upset, they’ll pull even with the Titans for the most wins against the Colts since divisional realignment in 2002.
The Titans have beaten Indy five times, with the 2007 win at Indianapolis coming in a game irrelevant to the Colts' playoff standing. Jacksonville’s topped the Colts four times. New England has three victories.
Jim Caldwell pledged this week the Colts would not get caught up in the Jaguars’ recent struggles, losses by a combined score of 66-16.
“I think it has a lot to do with our mindset,” Caldwell said. “I think it has a lot to do with veterans that have been around, that certainly communicate the message to the young guys, as well. Coaches, we tell them all the time, I mean there is not an opponent that we take lightly, and I think sometimes they may find ways to tune you out as a coach.
“But the thing about it though, I think that is where you get reinforcement from the guys that are playing the game with them, that helps get that message out. We know we’re going to face a very, very tough and difficult challenge with this team.”
