AFC South Roundup: Colts stay alive in South
The AFC South landscape shifted slightly on Sunday. The Texans are no longer unbeatable, and the Colts got a little closer to the top.
There was a lot of action all over the league on Sunday. In the AFC South, the two top teams met. The Colts and Texans squared off and the result of that game showed the division is not quite sewn up yet. There is still some football left to play.
The Colts beat the Texans 24-21 and inched a little closer in the divisional standings. They are still down 2 games with 3 to play, so their chances of catching Houston are unlikely. But they delayed the division from being clinched nonetheless. They have Dallas next in Lucas Oil Stadium.
Houston meanwhile is still the top dog in the AFC South. They are still in the lead and will more than likely win the division. In fact, they can clinch if they win next week and the Colts and Titans both lose. They get the Jets next week, so that should be a win.
Tennessee won as well. They beat the Jaguars 30-9 on Thursday night football. They are trying to keep their slim divisional hopes alive, as well as their chances for the second wild-card spot. With that beating of Jacksonville, they help their cause. They play the Giants next week.
Jacksonville continues their slide meanwhile. That win against the Colts a couple of weeks ago seems to just be a blip on the radar. They did not look good at all against the Titans. They are by far the worst team in the league, and they have the Redskins up next.
While the division should go to Houston, nothing is locked up yet. So there are still three teams left in the race at the end of the year.
