INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Jonathan Taylor rushed for a franchise-record 253 yards and two scores, Philip Rivers threw for another touchdown and the Indianapolis Colts clinched a playoff spot with a 28-14 victory over Jacksonville.

Indy started Sunday needing one of Baltimore, Cleveland, Miami or Tennessee to lose to have a chance at earning one of seven spots in the AFC field.

The door opened when Buffalo blew out the Dolphins 56-26 and the Colts took full advantage by scoring the first 20 points against the reeling Jaguars before closing it out with Taylor's 45-yard TD run with 3:35 to play.
