The Colts are launching their "Light the Town Blue" campaign this week to give their fans and local businesses the opportunity to show their support all week, ramping up to Saturday's playoff game.

Thursday from 10 am until 2 pm, it's Light the Town Blue Community Day at the Children's Museum.  That event includes free blue glow necklaces and Colts playoff posters for the first 3,000 and special appearances with Blue and the Colts cheerleaders among a lot of other fun activities.

On Friday, there's a pep rally at Circle Centre Mall from 11:30 am to 1 pm where you can register to win tickets to Saturday's game.  There's a virtual pep rally at 6 pm hosted by the 1070/107.5 The Fan.

In addition to all of that, the Colts have teamed up with Meijer stores to give away free blue light bulbs starting at 10 am Monday morning at 18 locations throughout central Indiana.

 

The NFL also announced its schedule for the Divisional Round. Seattle host at 4:35 p.m. Saturday with New England hosting at game at 8:15 p.m.  Carolina hosts at 1:05 p.m. next Sunday and Denver will host at 4:40 p.m.

Sunday, the Colts wrapped up the AFC's fourth seed in the playoffs with a home win over the Jaguars.

Andrew Luck threw for 282 yards and one touchdown, Robert Mathis reclaimed the NFL sacks lead and Adam Vinatieri joined the 2,000-point club as the Colts routed Jacksonville 30-10.

The AFC South champs have now won three straight, matching their longest streak of the season. Indy (11-5) finished with a 6-0 mark against division foes and has outscored its last three opponents 78-20.

Jacksonville (4-12) lost its third straight.

Luck was 26 of 37 and became the first player in league history to top 8,000 yards in his first two NFL seasons. Mathis retook the sacks lead in the first half and added another in the second half, giving him 19½, and Vinatieri moved into fifth on the career scoring list with 2,006 points, passing George Blanda and Matt Stover.

It was never close. Indy built a 17-0 lead and never let the Jags get close.
