NFL experts are split on who will win this Sunday's Jacksonville Jaguars-Indianapolis Colts game.

Disastrous seasons for both the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars will mercifully come to an end on Sunday at EverBank Field.

For the Colts, they flirted with an 0-16 season as they played without franchise quarterback Peyton Manning and can secure the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft with a loss to the Jaguars, who are 4-11, fired head coach Jack Del Rio and have placed over 30 players on injured reserve in the last four months.

Sports Illustrated's Peter King expects the Jaguars to play hard to get Maurice Jones-Drew the NFL rushing title, but expects the Colts to win. Three of the five experts at CBSSports.com have the Jaguars winning (or Colts clinching the No. 1 pick), while Adam Schefter is the lone expert at ESPN to pick the Jaguars.

Mike Florio and Gregg Rosenthal of NBC Sports and Pro Football Talk both pick the Jaguars, with Florio accurately explaining the scenarios:

If the Colts win, they lose. If they lose, they win. So they’ll lose. And win. The question, of course, is what they’ll lose. And what they’ll win.
