When Do the Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts Play Next?
Are the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Indianapolis Colts Rivals?
Yes, the Jaguars and Colts are division rivals, both playing in the AFC South. The Jaguars are a relatively new NFL franchise. The Colts and Jaguars have been playing since Jacksonville’s first NFL season in 1995, and have played annually since 2002 when both teams joined the AFC South after the NFL realignment.
Who are the Jacksonville Jaguars’ Biggest Rivals?
The Jaguars’ biggest rivalry is with the Tennessee Titans. Both teams are members of the AFC South and the close proximity between Nashville and Jacksonville have led to a bitter rivalry between the two franchises, despite being one of the more recent rivalries in the NFL.
The Colts are another fierce rival of the Jaguars, even though the series hasn’t been competitive for much of its history. Jacksonville is one of the newest franchises in the NFL, having joined as an expansion team in 1995, the Jaguars’ joining the league coincided with a time when the Colts were a powerhouse in the NFL.
Who are the Indianapolis Colts’ Biggest Rivals?
Throughout their history, but becoming particularly intense during the Peyton Manning era of the franchise, the Colts have maintained two intense rivalries with the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Colts have played both teams several times in franchise history, and have had fierce playoff battles against each team. During much of the ’00s, the Colts were led by quarterback Manning, and the Patriots and Steelers were led by Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger, respectively. These star quarterbacks had their teams in competition for the Super Bowl each year, which led to some memorable games during that time.
In addition to those two rivalries, the Colts are also rivals with their AFC South foes: the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Tennessee Titans, and the Houston Texans.

The Colts and Jaguars have played each other more than 44 times over their storied histories, with the Colts leading the series as of the conclusion of the 2022 NFL season. The two teams have never played in the NFL playoffs.
Notable games include the first matchup between the two teams as AFC South foes in 2002. The Colts would take a 14-7 lead into halftime, but a field goal and touchdown pass from Mark Brunell to Patrick Johnson gave the Jaguars a 17-14 lead in the third quarter. The Colts would answer with two touchdown passes from Peyton Manning—first to Qadry Ismail and then to Marvin Harrison—en route to a 28-25 win.
In 2004, the Colts and Jaguars traded scores in the fourth quarter for four lead changes before Josh Scobee ultimately would put the Jaguars ahead with 38 seconds left with a 53-yard field goal in a 27-24 win.
In 2010, a back and forth contest between the Colts and Jaguars was won by Jacksonville. In the fourth quarter, each team scored three times in the final 2:09 of the game. The Jaguars took a 28-21 lead on a touchdown pass from David Garrard to Maurice Jones-Drew. The Colts responded with Peyton Manning leading a drive capped off with a 1-yard touchdown pass to Austin Collie to tie the game with 48 seconds remaining, but the Jaguars had enough time to set up a 59-yard game winning field goal by Scobee to win 31-28 as time expired.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts History
The Jacksonville Jaguars are one of the newest teams in the NFL, announced as part of the 1995 NFL expansion, which also added the Carolina Panthers. The Jaguars started in the AFC Central, but were moved to the AFC South in 2002 as part of the NFL realignment. The 2002 realignment put the Colts and Jaguars in the same division.
The Colts won the first five games in the rivalry’s history, and the first Jaguars win came in 2003 for a 28-23 win. The ’00s saw the Colts as one of the most dominant franchises in the NFL behind quarterback Peyton Manning, but the Jaguars remained competitive in the series. The longest winning streak for the Jaguars came from 2011 to 2012 where they won three-straight games. The Colts would answer with a six-game winning streak from 2012 to 2015.
In the late 2010s, the two teams saw a reset with the retirement of Colts quarterback, Andrew Luck. The Jaguars found new success behind quarterback Blake Bortles, who led them to an AFC Championship appearance in 2017. The success was short-lived, as the Jaguars hit the reset button and landed the number one overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, which they used to take quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
