Playoffs Start Sunday
If the Jaguars win, they need to win only one of their last two against Washington and Houston to clinch the division title.
If the Colts win, they would win the division title by beating Oakland and Tennessee in their final two games.
The Jaguars haven't won a division title since 1999 when they went to the AFC title game.
They'd also host the first playoff game since the 1999 AFC title game if they win their division
"It was a big win, but next week will be bigger," said defensive tackle Terrance Knighton after they beat the Raiders. "You can't sit back and hope Indy loses. We've got to take it. To be the champs, you've got to beat the champs."
Linebacker Kirk Morrison said, "Everybody keeps saying Indy, Indy. What about us? What about the Jacksonville Jaguars? What about us going out and executing and holding everything we want in our own hands? Not worrying about they do, but worrying about what we do. We know what's at stake."
The Jaguars showed they are a resilient team as they scored the winning points in the final two minutes for the fourth time this year and won a game despite giving up more than 30 points for the first time in team history.
"We believe we're a team of destiny," Knighton said.
Maurice Jones-Drew scored the game-winner on a 30-yard run with 1:34 left in the game after Deji Karim returned a kickoff 65 yards.
The Jaguars also won two games at the buzzer on Josh Scobee's 59-yard field goal against Indianapolis and on a Hail Mary pass against Houston, and they beat Cleveland on Jones-Drew's one-yard run with 1:16 left.
Sunday's win was a see-saw game as the Raiders led 17-7 at halftime only to see the Jaguars charge back to take a 31-24 lead before the Raiders tied it 31-31 on Darren McFadden's 36-yard touchdown run with 1:53 remaining. McFadden also went 67 yards for a touchdown with a short pass in the first period and a 51-yard touchdown run in the third period.
After the Jaguars took the lead in the final two minutes, the Raiders got to the Jaguars' 23 as time ran out.
