Colts rout Jaguars

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

The Colts (3-1) weren't all that good, especially early in the first half, but they were plenty good against one of the worst teams in the league.

Indianapolis led 20-3 at halftime – Jacksonville (0-4) 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 that 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 had outgained the Jaguars 363-70 at that point.
