The Jaguars know they have to win on Sunday to keep their playoff hopes alive and more news for your Thursday afternoon.
Jaguars taking â€œmust-winâ€� approach to Colts
Mired in a four-game losing streak and being 0-2 in the AFC South, they came to this conclusion: They must win at division rival Indianapolis (3-5) on Sunday.
Itâ€™s essentially a playoff atmosphere for Jacksonville (3-5) in early November.
â€œThis is a thousand percent a must-win,â€� linebacker Myles Jack said Wednesday. â€œNo. 1, itâ€™s a conference game that weâ€™ve got to win. And then weâ€™re on a four-game losing streak, so we canâ€™t lose another game.â€�

Bouye initially suffered the injury against the Houston Texans on Oct. 21 and missed the teamâ€™s game in London against the Philadelphia Eagles the following week.

The Jaguars are down, but not out.
