The Indianapolis Colts dealt the Jacksonville Jaguars their fourth loss of the season Sunday, walloping the winless Jaguars 37-3.

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck threw for 257 yards and two touchdowns. On the ground, the Colts galloped for 140 yards, behind 65 yards from running back Donald Brown and 60 yards and a touchdown from Trent Richardson.

The Jaguars got on the board first on a Josh Scobee field goal in the first quarter. The Colts took over from there.

In the second quarter, cornerback Darius Butler picked off a Blaine Gabbert pass and returned it 41 yards for a touchdown. Richardson scampered into the end zone from one yard out. The two touchdowns were bookended by Adam Vinatieri field goals, and the Colts went into halftime up 20-3.

Less than three minutes into the second half, Luck hit tight end Coby Fleener for a 31-yard touchdown pass. Luck added his second touchdown pass when wide receiver Reggie Wayne caught a 5-yard pass in the end zone.

The Colts defense forced Jaguars quarterback Gabbert into throwing three interceptions and were able to sack Gabbert four times. The defensive charge was led by linebacker Robert Mathis who finished with five tackles and three sacks.

The Jaguars (0-4) have been outscored 129-31 on the season. They will face the St. Louis Rams in Week 5. The Colts (3-1) will prepare for a tough matchup against the Seattle Seahawks.
