After winning on Sunday, the Colts are now in second place in the AFC South. Here is how the rest of the division looks right now.
The Colts needed a win on Sunday to put themselves back in the divisional race. They did just that, destroying the Titans 38-10. In doing so, they moved themselves up to second in the AFC South. They now play the Dolphins at home in a battle of .500 teams.
Tennessee meanwhile falls to 5-5 and are the most fickle team in the league to figure out. They now sit at 5-5 as well, and now don’t have the tiebreaker over the Colts for second place. They play Houston on Monday Night Football next week.
Speaking of Houston, they survived the Redskins on Sunday. They won 23-21 and hold a two game lead over the Colts in the division. They have won seven straight games, but haven’t looked super impressive doing it. They play Tennessee on Monday night.
Jacksonville choked away their game against the Steelers, losing 20-16 at the end of the game. They were leading 16-0 in the 3rd quarter and let Pittsburgh score 20 unanswered to win. They are last in the division, and play Buffalo on Sunday.
Being only two games away, the Colts have an opportunity. The problem is they only have six games left to play, so they are running out of time to make up that difference. They are tied for the second wild card spot however.
If the Colts keep winning games, they might catch Houston. They need help, but anything could happen. Playing like they are right now, they are very hard to beat. They truly are playing like one of the best teams in the league.
