Blake Bortles debuts in Jaguars' 44-17 loss to Colts

JACKSONVILLE, Florida -- Andrew Luck threw four touchdown passes -- three of them in a lopsided first half -- and the Indianapolis Colts dominated the Jacksonville Jaguars 44-17 on Sunday for their first win of the season.

It was a home opener to forget for the Jaguars (0-3), who trailed 30-0 at the break and benched quarterback Chad Henne.

The only positive for Jacksonville was getting rookie Blake Bortles on the field. The third overall pick in May's NFL draft played the entire second half, finishing with two touchdown passes and two interceptions. He completed 14 of 24 passes for 223 yards, including fourth-quarter scores to Allen Hurns and Cecil Shorts III.

Those were among the few highlights for the Jaguars.

Indianapolis (1-2) made plays from start to finish. Luck completed 31 of 39 passes for 370 yards.
