The Jaguars still lag behind the Colts in the AFC South.
The Colts could have made a statement in Week 8 with a win over the Tennessee Titans. Instead, they showed they’re the second-best team in the division. Indy is currently 3-5 and has some pretty good talent, so why does the team with the horseshoe on the helmet have a losing record ahead of Week 9? There are several reasons but a big one is the play of Carson Wentz.
Wentz has at times made some great throws but he’s also made several questionable decisions. Against the Titans, the Colts quarterback threw a pick-6 and later had a pass intercepted in overtime. He’s not the reason only Indianapolis lost but he also had the chance to help them win the game and came empty-handed.
Both the Colts’ defense and the offense rank 14th in the league. Right now, Indy looks like a middle-of-the-pack team. Good enough to win eight or nine games but not nearly enough to go toe to toe with better squads. On the bright side, not everything is gloom and doom for them. They had won three of their last four games prior to Week 8. If you had to choose one team in the AFC South that could compete with the Titans for the division title, it would probably be the Colts.
