Here are three matchups to watch as the Indianapolis Colts come into Everbank Field to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in the season finale.

3. RB Maurice Jones-Drew v. LB Pat Angerer 

It's the last clall. for the Jaguars' 2011 season and the Weavers need to sent off with a bang and what would be better than breaking Fred Taylor's single-season rushing record? Pat Angerer has been a solid player in his young career, but nothing is going to stop Mojo from getting that record.

2. DE Jeremy Mincey v. OT Anthony Castonzo

Mincey had a huge day against the Colts diuring their last matchup, racking up 2.5 sacks and a forced fumble, while leading the charge for a dominating performance by the Jaguars defense.This week, he has a chance to haunt Dan Orlovsky's nightmares as he goes up agains tthe Colts' offensive line, which has been suspect..

1. LT Eugene Monroe v. DE Dwight Freeney

The best way to make a Sunday a good day is to keep yor starting QB off of his back. Eugene Monroe has taken his fair share of criticism, even though he has been a solid player since he was drafted in 2009. Well, unsurprisingly, he has had another solid year. In their first matchup this year,  Monroe held Freeney to 0 sacks , 0 tackles and a single pressure. If Monroe blanks Freeney again, the detractors will have to admit that he is playing at a Pro Bowl level.
