Week 12: at Indianapolis Colts
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. The Jaguars transitioned from Chad Henne to Blake Bortles during their Week 3 game against the Colts - at that time, Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson were still sharing work (9/32/0 rushing with 2/31/0 receiving for Gerhart; 8/33/0 rushing for Robinson). Of course, as the season progressed Robinson moved up the depth chart and is now the lead guy on the team entering Week 12. He's ran for 15/60/2 (with 2/10/0 receiving) vs. Dallas and 17/94/1 (with 2/10/0 receiving) at Cincinnati during his last two games.
The Colts' rush D is 17th in the NFL averaging 112.7 yards allowed per game, but they are next-to-last in the league with 12 rushing scores handed out to date. New England cranked out 44/246/4 rushing at Indianapolis last week, while the Giants posted 20/89/1 rushing vs. this group two games ago.
At Indianapolis, this looks like a neutral matchup for Robinson and company. Teams tend to get behind Indianapolis quickly and then rely on their passing game to close the gap when they are facing Luck and company.
