Eric Ebron is absolutely owning the Jacksonville Jaguars. The tight end scored a 53-yard touchdown on the opening drive. As it turned out, that was just a sneak preview of what was to come.
The Indianapolis Colts tight end added a second touchdown in the first quarter on, of all things, a sweep.
That's a RUSHING TD for @Ebron85.

He scored a third touchdown early in the second quarter when he was left wide open in the end zone.

Twitter went nuts about both Ebron’s dominance, and the porous play from the once dominant Jacksonville defense.
Eric Ebron is probably worth covering.
His third touchdown of the day (two receiving and one rushing) gives the Colts a 21-7 lead with 9:19 left in the second quarter.

Eric Ebron has 3 TDs.
Guess the Jaguars defense didn't figure things out during the bye week.

Sure, Jaguars. Don't guard Eric Ebron. Fine. #Colts don't care.
His 3rd TD of the day

Memo to Jax. This isn't that difficult. He's the big guy wearing 85. In blue. Eric Ebron.
9:19 of 2nd and Ebron has 53 TD catch, 2 TD run, 12 TD catch.

Logically, we’d expect Ebron to cool down. But the Jaguars’ ineptitude has been defying logic all season.
