AFC South Projections

Posted on Updated on

Houston Texans–  The Texans are one of the NFL’s best teams.  They have a dominant run game with Arian Foster and Ben Tate.  To go along with a dominant run game, they a good passing game.  The Texans have the best wide receiver in the NFL in Andre Johnson.  On defense the Texans can stop the run and have a formidable pass rush.  The Texans have all the ingredients to make the Super Bowl and they are my pick to win the super bowl in 2013.

Prediction 13-3

Tennessee Titans – The Titans are one of the teams that could surprise a lot of people this year.  Their running game will be rejuvenated this year and Chris Johnson will once again be an elite NFL running back.  They have a great young wide receiving core with Kenney Britt, Kendall Wright, and Damian Williams.  Their young wide receiving core should help second year quarterback Jake Locker be successful.  On the defensive side of the ball the only concern I have is how they will replace pro bowl cornerback Cortland Finnegan who signed a contract with the St. Louis Rams.

Prediction 11-5

Indianapolis Colts – The Colts are in a complete rebuild mode right now.  They lost the greatest player in franchise history in Peyton Manning.  However, the Colts just drafted Andrew Luck the top quarterback in the 2012 NFL draft.  They then went on to draft two tight ends to give in Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allan.   The Colts offense will probably be pretty stagnant next year do to all the youth they have on the field.  The Colts defense will be much worse then there offense this year.  They are switching  to a 3-4 defense and don’t have the best personnel for this defense.  However, the colts could have a good pass rush it depends on how well Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis adjust to playing OLB.

Prediction 4-12

Jacksonville Jaguars – The Jaguars have the worst starting quarterback in the NFL right now in Blaine Gabbert.  Blaine, the second year quarterback from Missouri, looks scared in the pocket, which stops him from making accurate throws.  The only positive on their offense is their ability to run the ball with Maurcie Jones Drew. The Jacksonville defense was the 9thbest defense in the NFL this past year.  The defense will have to keep them in games and for them to win they will need to hold the opposing team to under 10 points.

Prediction 4-12
