The Jacksonville Jaguars have now won three games in a row and find themselves with the best record in the AFC South following their dismantling of the Indianapolis Colts in Week 6. Although Indy had success moving the ball on their first drive, the Jags didn't allow them to reach the end zone until the fourth quarter.
In the end, the game wasn't as close as the 37-20 record suggested, and the Colts' losing streak against the Jags as visitors now sits at nine games. But what about the Tennessee Titans and the Houston Texans? How did the rest of the division fare in Week 6? Here's a ranking of the AFC South.
No. 4 AFC South Ranking Post-Week 6: Tennessee Titans (2-4)
The Tennessee Titans thought Ryan Tannehill could bounce back from an underwhelming 2022 campaign but he didn't and could potentially miss time after suffering a high ankle sprain in Week 6.
This wouldn't be an issue if the Titans had a contingency plan in place but neither Will Levis nor Malik Willis seems ready to take reins. The latter filled in for Tannehill when he left the game against the Baltimore Ravens but he held the ball too long and consistently looked overwhelmed.
In retrospect, those training camp reports about Willis making a leap in Year 2 might not have been anything other than offseason hype. That said, it's telling that the Titans could've gone with Levis but opted not to. Maybe he isn't ready, perhaps Willis is the better of the two. Either way, Tennessee doesn't seem to have an answer at quarterback.
To make matters worse, the Titans have benched several underperformers who were expected to have key roles in 2023. Among them are left tackle Andre Dillard and cornerback Kristian Fulton. Add injuries to Teair Tart and Jeffery Simmons on the defensive line and it's hard to see Tennessee getting out of the division cellar anytime soon.
