T.Y. Hilton #13 of the Indianapolis Colts celebrates after catching a pass in overtime during the game between the Indianapolis Colts and the San Francisco 49ers at Lucas Oil Stadium on October 8, 2017 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

That was the case Sunday, with the Jaguars pulling away for a one-sided victory despite rookie running back Leonard Fournette missing the first game of his National Football League career.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are tied for first place in the AFC South heading into their bye week.

Lee scored 9.2 FanDuel points and registered 5.79 Receiving Net Expected Points, per numberFire live. "The O-line just got to play better", Hilton said Sunday.

Jacksonville continued its domination in the third quarter, increasing its lead to 27-0 on running back T.J. Yeldon's 58-yard touchdown run to cap a six-play, 91-yard drive.

"Not at all. I mean, we were winning our matchups".

Hilton had two catches for 27 yards on Sunday.

"So, we wanted to take a chance and throw it down the field".

Seven games in, the Jaguars know they have a stud at tailback (Fournette) and a lights-out defense (first shutout since 2006 and a franchise record-tying 10 sacks).

Currently, the Colts need Hilton now more than ever, and it's time for him to start acting more like a leader in the locker room and take a page out of Luck's book because pointing fingers will only flood a rapidly sinking Colts ship faster.

Hilton said he talked to coach Chuck Pagano but declined to say what the conversation entailed. "Once we get the O-line going and back in rhythm, we will be fine". "They came in here and played their tails off". The Jaguars entered the game ranked eighth in scoring at 26.0 points a game.

It will provide the Jaguars with that opportunity because the off week may allow Fournette, center Brandon Linder (out three consecutive games with an illness) and left tackle Cam Robinson (left ankle injury on Sunday) to return to action. They won the turnover battle with the Jaguars, but only once drove as deep as the Jags 30 yard line. They outgained the Colts by 286 yards. "No", he said, "but we recognize this is a time where we gotta band together as a team, not separate". To have this win, a dominant win like this, guys are going to be relaxed, laughing.
