SALT LAKE CITY – Former Utah Utes and current Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Devin Lloyd recorded his first career interception in a win over the Indianapolis Colts.

The Jaguars hosted the Colts at TIAA Bank Field on Sunday, September 18.

With 4:33 left in the fourth quarter, the Jaguars defensive front put pressure on Colts quarterback Matt Ryan before deflecting a pass.

The ball sailed across the middle of the field and into the arms of Lloyd. The linebacker returned the ball 13 yards.

It was Lloyd’s first career interception and it came in his second game.

At the time of Lloyd’s pick, the Jaguars owned a 24-0 lead.

Jacksonville held on for the 24-point win. The Jaguars haven’t lost to the Colts at home since 2014.

Lloyd finished the game with a team-high six total tackles, three solo tackles, three pass breakups, and an interception. Last week in Lloyd’s first NFL game, he had 11 total tackles and eight solo tackles.

With the win over Indianapolis, Jacksonville improved to a 1-1 record this season,

The Jaguars’ next game is on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday, September 25 at 2:05 p.m. (MDT).
