The Houston Texans, Indianapolis Colts, Tennessee Titans, and Jacksonville Jaguars run the gamut of failures and successes for NFL teams. The AFC South has never been the premier division in the NFL, but there were times when three of the four were either going to the playoffs or at least competing for those spots.
Through four weeks it appears that just two of the four AFC South teams are in the running for a playoff spot. Both the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts appear to be leaps and bounds ahead of the Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars. This is especially big for the Texans, who are rebounding after an abysmal 2-14 campaign last season and currently lead the division at 3-1.
The Titans and Jaguars, meanwhile are floundering. They are a combined 1-7 and are struggling to show basic competencies, like tackling and have yet to put together the offensive side of the ball. The Titans had a great first game of the season but have fallen back to earth, putting up just 17 points or less in the last three outings. The Jaguars are struggling to even reach 17 points at a relevant point of a football game, instead amassing most of their meager 44 total points through four games.
