Jaguars are in first place in the AFC South

With the Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, and Houston Texans all losing on Sunday, the Jacksonville Jaguars are in first place in the AFC South. Just off the top of my head, I cannot remember the last time the Jaguars were in first place in the AFC South heading into Thanksgiving Day weekend. Have they ever, since the inception of the AFC South?

Both the Jaguars and the Colts sit at 6-4, but the Jaguars hold the head-to-head tie breaker against the Colts after beating them on a Josh Scobee 59-yard field goal. The Jaguars are finally beating teams they should beat on a consistent basis and the other teams in the division are struggling. The Texans just find ways to lose. The Titans are apparently done with Vince Young and I'm not sure how far a Kerry Collins led team can go. The Colts are still good, but attrition is taking it's toll on their offense and defense.

How long can the Jaguars hold on to first place?
