Jacksonville Jaguars now favorite to win AFC South -
A lot of things can happen in one day. Apparently, the Jacksonville Jaguars becoming the best team in the AFC South is one of them.

According to ESPN's Football Power Index, the Jaguars' 29-7 victory over the Houston Texans on Sunday, coupled with losses by Tennessee and Indianapolis, means they're now the favorite to win the division. The FPI gives the Jaguars a 54.9 percent chance to win the division and a 63.4 percent chance of making the playoffs.
