Dolfans who didn’t see enough of Andrew Luck in Sunday’s 433-yard strafing get to see more of him four days later with Thursday night’s NFL Week 10 lid-lifter. You know how the prime-time stage tends to infuse electricity in a host stadium? Make an exception with woeful Jacksonville, which has an 0-4 home record and has been outscored 126-34 in those games. The Jags’ only win came Sept. 23 vs. these Colts, 22-17, but imagining a sweep of this AFC South series is tough. Maurice Jones-Drew bludgeoned Indy for 377 rush-yards in past two meetings, but MJD is out injured, and this miserable Jax offense won’t outscore Luck and Reggie Wayne. Colts have won seven straight Thursday games. Make it eight.
