Colts vs. Jaguars Game

Starting with an all-inclusive, VIP pre-game tailgate and leading to 100-level group seating at one of the highest-rated NFL stadiums in the nation, this will be an unrivaled gameday experience. The Colts take on the Jaguars in Week 10 for their first of two meetings this season. The Jaguars hired former Florida and Ohio State title-winning coach Urban Meyer to pair with No. 1 overall pick Trevor Lawrence. Colts picked up quarterback Carson Wentz in the off-season, and there is a great deal of anticipation to see him back with his former offensive coordinator, Frank Reich. Coming off a split season in 2020, this should be a great match-up!
