AFC South roundup: Colts don’t lose ground
Even though the Colts lost yet again on Thursday night, they didn’t lose any ground in the AFC South standings. Here is how each team in the division did.
The Colts are dead last in the AFC South right now. They are the only team with only one win. Everyone is ahead of them by at least one game. But they didn’t lose ground from the top of the division this weekend, and that is something to hold on to for the team.
Tennessee lost in an ugly game against the Bills. They lost 13-12, and neither team looked good. Both offenses sputtered badly, only putting up a combined 441 total yards. There was only one touchdown scored all game long. The titans fall to 3-2 and face the Ravens next week.
Jacksonville also lost on Sunday, getting pummeled by the Chiefs 30-14. That too was an ugly offensive game for the Jaguars, as Blake Bortles had 4 turnovers. The Jags have all of a sudden looked vulnerable, as they fall to 3-2 as well. They play in Dallas next week.
The only team to win from the division was the Texans. They beat Dallas in overtime last night 19-16. It was a defensive battle for most of the game. The win against the Colts seems to have sparked the Texans, as now they have won two straight and are 2-3. They play the Bills next week.
The good news is the Colts didn’t fall behind any further than what they were in the divisional standings. They can think about that as they prepare to face the Jets next week. They know that if they can put a run together, they are still in the divisional race.
It’s clear the AFC South isn’t as good as we thought it would be this season. That might be a good thing for the Colts.
