Here are the current standings for the AFC South. As we all know, with the Jacksonville Jaguars win over the Tennessee Titans and the Indianapolis Colts loss to the Dallas Cowboys, the Jaguars have moved into sole place in the AFC South with a one game lead on the Colts.

If the playoffs started today, the Jaguars would be the number four seed in the AFC, hosting a Wild Card match-up against the loser (drrr, fixed) of the New England Patriots and New York Jets match-up tonight on Monday Night Football. The Jaguars and the Colts both control their own destiny. If the Colts win out, they'll win the division. If the Jaguars win their next two games, they'll win the division.

We'll cover who you should be rooting for later, but the clear obvious one is the Titans on Thursday Night Football this week against the Colts.
