Jaguars stand firm at the top of the AFC South

NFL: Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans Jim Brown-USA TODAY Sports

The Jacksonville Jaguars hold firm in first place of the AFC South after their impressive victory over the New England Patriots. The rest of the division on Sunday looked... not so impressive. Lets take a spin around the AFC South and see how the rest of the division is shaking out.

Houston Texans 17, Tennessee Titans 20

I went back and watched the 30-minute cut up of this game and buddy,,,,,, I wish I hadn’t. This was an abysmal game to watch and both teams just look bad. The Texans offensive line is awful and Deshaun Watson has no shot most of the time and they can’t run the ball. The Titans started Blaine Gabbert and he competed a pass to himself and for a long stretch of the game had less passing yards than the 66-yard punt fake touchdown the Titans ran. Houston moves to 0-2 and are now a long shot to make the playoffs while the Titans limp to 1-1 and into TIAA Bank next week.

Indianapolis Colts 21, Washington 9

The Colts picked up a nice win on the road and their defense showed up against a timid Alex Smith, but even with the three-score win, I’m still not buying the Colts as a threat this season. Andrew Luck hasn’t been bad, but he hasn’t been great either and is far from what he was a few years ago. He’s completing a bunch of short passes and still turning the ball over. They were able to get pressure on Smith and shut down the Washington run game, but I’m not buying this as some show of the Colts aren’t actually a dumpster of a roster because they definitely are.
