A Look at the Rest of the AFC South: Week 8


Colts’ fans, while our attention will be turned to Lucas Oil Stadium tomorrow for the game with the Niners, the rest of the AFC South will be in action in other parts of the country.

Let’s take a look at how those teams could fare this week:

1:00 PM ET (CBS): Houston Texans at Buffalo Bills

The Texans are second in the AFC South right now, and will be heading to Indy next weekend. And while the Bills are atrocious, this one won’t be easy for the Texans. This is the kind of game the Bills have to win, and they’ve sort of hit a hot stretch here lately, winning two in a row.

I would expect the Bills to be fired up, and take down a red hot Texans’ team. This won’t be good for Houston, as they need all the wins they can get in order to keep up with the undefeated Colts.

Prediction: Bills 20, Texans 17

4:05 PM ET (CBS): Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans

The Jaguars are 3-3 and are technically still in the AFC South race, while the Titans have yet to win a game this season. I’ll be keeping an eye on this game, but not because I think it’ll have any impact on the Colts. I’d just like to see how Vince Young will fare in his first start of the season.

Honestly, the Titans have to win sooner or later, right? Jacksonville’s secondary is horrendous, but I’m not sure the Titans can take advantage of that. They’ll still find a way to win though, and might actually see a defensive resurgence…..at least for one week.

Prediction: Titans 23, Jaguars 13
