The last meeting of the Jaguars and Colts is normally a hot ticket.  It generally  is a game with big implications, big emotions and a nice warmer weather escape  for Colts fans.  This year it may be blacked out. The Jaguars were granted a 24-hour extension by the NFL today to avoid a television blackout for Sunday’s season finale against the Indianapolis Colts.
