NFL: Colts on a roll

Indy blows out lowly Jacksonville on the road

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Indianapolis Colts got away with a sluggish start.

It certainly helped that they were playing one of the worst teams in the league.

Andrew Luck threw two touchdown passes, Trent Richardson ran for a score and the Colts became the latest to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars by double digits, 37-3 Sunday.

The Colts (3-1) were a little sloppy in the first half — Luck threw interceptions on his first two drives and missed several open receivers — but it was hardly enough to made a difference against the Jaguars (0-4).

“It wasn’t an ideal start,” Luck said. “It was more of a terrible start to the game offensively for us. ... We sort of woke up in the second half. Those two scoring drives were big for us. That is what we needed.”

Indianapolis led 20-3 at halftime — Jacksonville has been outscored 75-8 in the first half this season — and made it a laugher with consecutive touchdown drives in the third quarter.

Luck found Coby Fleener for a 31-yard score, a play in which even Fleener was surprised he was so wide open, and then connected with Reggie Wayne in the back of the end zone from 5 yards.

That made it 34-3 and sent many of the Jaguars faithful heading to the exits.

The Colts outgained the Jaguars 363-70 at that point.

Luck completed 22 of 36 passes for 260 yards, with two TDs and an interception. His other pick was negated by an offside penalty.

“The sky is the limit,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. “Listening to him and talking to him, he did get off to a slow start, but he is an even-keeled guy. ... He is one of those guys who can put things behind him and move on. Talent combined with that kind of mindset, the sky is the limit.”

Wayne finished with five catches for 100 yards. Richardson ran 20 times for 60 yards. Fleener caught five passes for 77 yards.

Defensively, Robert Mathis had three sacks and cornerback Vontae Davis intercepted a pass and tipped another one that teammate Darius Butler caught and returned 41 yards for a score and a 10-3 lead.
