I'm not even entirely sure what to make of that game. The Texans led throughout, at times in a fashion dominant enough that you felt like the Colts couldn't win, yet it was still exhausting to watch.

That said, BACK-TO-BACK AFC SOUTH CHAMPS, BABY! Only the Colts can say that they've ever achieved that in this division. Your Texans also have as many AFC South titles as the Tennessee Titans. So, you know, suck on that, Music City Methdealers.

Your Texans, for all their problems (most of which can be traced to Joe Marciano's existence) held Tim's false idol, Andrew Luck, to 13-27 for 186 and 2TD. Ignoring the 61-yard TD, on which the Texans' secondary went full Frank Bush, Luck was 12-26 for 125 and a score. Even with that play, when you see that they sacked Luck five times, that's hardly a game that makes me think that Luck is the second coming of Peyton Manning.

Speaking of sacks, Justin James Watt finished the day with three, and I suspect he'll (rightly) have 3.5 after the film is reviewed. Three and a half would give him 20 on the season, meaning he has two games to get 3 to break the single-season record. His current line -- 19.5 sacks, 31 TFL, 15 PD -- is otherworldly, and the sack total is tied for 9th all-time in NFL history.

Also great? Andre Lamont Johnson. Much respect. And Arian Foster ain't shabby.

So...yeah. Use this thread to discuss how awesome it is to, once again, be AFC South Champs, plus any other topics that you deem worthy of your use of pixels.

Scoreboard, y'all.
