AFC South Divisional Round up: Colts get some help
The Colts lost on Sunday to Philadelphia 20-16. That brought them down in the divisional race, but they got some help from the other teams to keep themselves close.
The Colts lost a close one on Sunday. The fact that they had the game won and couldn’t close hurts. But the team got some help from the other teams in the division, so they didn’t fall back too far in the race for the divisional crown.
Houston fell to 0-3 on the season after losing to the Giants. This team is in complete disarray right now and cannot get anything going. Deshaun Watson has struggled in the early going, and the defense hasn’t been good enough either. This is one team the Colts might not need to worry about down the stretch, although they do play them next week.
The Jaguars lost an ugly game to the Titans 9-6. The Jaguars looked like they were a juggernaut after they knocked off the Patriots in week 2. But they couldn’t even beat a team in their division using two different quarterbacks. They fall to 2-1. But they should be 3-1 after playing the Jets next week.
Meanwhile, Tennessee now has back-to-back wins over AFC South opponents. They now sit at 2-1 and are in first place in the South via tiebreaker. They are still a mess with injuries though so they can be handled later in the year. They face Philly next week.
Overall, the Colts got lucky they got this much help from the rest of the division. The team typically doesn’t get a ton of help. But they are standing in third place at 1-2. If they can beat Houston next week, they will be in much better shape.
