Despite the fact that the Jacksonville Jaguars fell to the New York Giants 24-20 on Sunday, the Jaguars were able to hold on to first place in the AFC South. Thanks to the San Diego Chargers running over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday Night Football, both teams sit tied at 6-5 again. The Jaguars still hold a head-to-head advantage with their victory over the Colts earlier in the year. The Houston Texans also beat the Tennessee Titans, putting both teams at 5-6.

Clearly this season, only one team in the AFC South is going to make the playoffs and it's going to be the division winner. The Jaguars face a vital game this weekend when they travel up to Nashville to face the Tennessee Titans. With a win over the Titans the Jaguars can tighten their grip on the AFC South division lead, but it won't be easy. Despite the fact that the Titans fell to the Texans 20-0, the Jaguars likely won't be facing rookie quarterback Rusty Smith on Sunday, but Kerry Collins who beat the Jaguars on Monday Night Football. If the Jaguars want to make the playoffs this season, it's going to have to be by winning the division. The quickest way to win the division is to defeat your division opponents.
