The Jaguars have won the last three games between these two AFC South rivals, including this season as well as the 2011 season finale. But Colts quarterback Andrew Luck isn't just some rookie in his third NFL start like he was the last time the Jaguars saw him.

No, Luck is now a full-blown prodigy who has the Colts in the playoff discussion with four wins in the last five games since that loss to the Jaguars. Luck is also coming off a game in which he threw for a rookie-record 433 yards last Sunday in a win over the Miami Dolphins.

Luck's four 300-yard passing games this season have tied Peyton Manning's rookie franchise record, set in 1998.

The difference will be:Can the Jaguars muster any sort of offense? Jacksonville continues to reside at the bottom of the league rankings in every major offensive category.

They are last in yards per game (254.4), last in points per game (14.6), last in passing yards per game (170.4) and 29th in rushing yards per game (84.0). And in what may be the worst bit of bad news in all of it is the Jacksonville defense is also last in the league in sacks with eight.

If they can't rattle Luck or match him touchdown for touchdown, that sets up to be a tough night.
