The AFC South After 6 Weeks
It may not have gone exactly as planned, but the Jacksonville Jaguars were able to find a way to win on Sunday over the NFC North's Chicago Bears. Winning in Soldier Field isn't easy; winning anywhere in this league isn't easy. The Jags seem to be headed in the right direction now with a win at Wembley Stadium last week and now at Soldier Field. Tally another W for the Jags post London play. Maybe it really does help them win ball games...[10.17.16 - The 7th Report - Episode 39 by The 7th Report]
The Houston Texans sit alone atop the AFC South after this weekends play. But things could get shaken up after this weekend as the Indianapolis Colts travel to Nashville to take on the 3-3 Tennessee Titans. The Houston Texans look to take on Brock Osweiler's former team in the Denver Broncos. Do you think he will receive a warm "Welcome home" - I don't think so either. The Jacksonville Jaguars are headed home to play the famous "OAKLAND RAIDAAAAS". A team that has started off hotter than anticipated but fell this past weekend to the Kansas City Chiefs. The matchup against the Oakland Raiders is extremely interesting to me- both teams are eerily similar. Both teams have formidable, young, and talented quarterbacks. Both teams had big name free agent's sign on defense this past offseason. Both have dynamic offenses especially at the QB and WR positions. Both teams selected highly talented, athletic defensive backs with their first picks in the 2016 draft (Jalen Ramsey & Karl Joseph).
As we look to Sunday to see more shifts in the AFC South division race, one cannot be certain as to which team it will favor. I picked the Jacksonville Jaguars to win this division at 9-7 so you know it's going to be a tight one. Let's hope they can pull one out this weekend, and get a W.
