Colts DT DeForest Buckner on 24-0 loss to Jaguars: 'That s*** was embarrassing'
The Indianapolis Colts lost 24-0 on Sunday, getting absolutely dismantled by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

He said after the game that despite this "pathetic" loss to the Jags, he believes the Colts have the players and coaches to be successful.wftv.com
