Quick Take: Young QBs square off in Indy and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing:Maurice Jones-Drew showed up, but Blaine Gabbert has been up-and-down and the defense is giving up too many yards. An 0-2 start isn't what new Jaguars owner Shahid Khan was looking for, but here is another winnable game. Colts rookie Andrew Luck passed his way to his first win on Sunday by taking down the Vikings, so he's got that under his belt. He'll try to get No. 2 on Sunday.

What to watch: Gabbert has been Jekyll and Hyde, and even after the preseason optimism about his progress, we don't really know how different he is after last year. If the Colts pressure him -- specifically if Dwight Freeney is playing -- we'll begin to learn a little more. We'll similarly watch Luck, who is trying to prove rookie quarterbacks don't have to get beat around in Year 1.
