With the Broncos' overtime victory over the Bengals last night, the first of the ten (10!) dominoes needed by the Indianapolis Colts to win the AFC South fell. Here are the remaining nine (9!) things that must happen for the Colts to overtake the Texans for the AFC South and a playoff berth.

Should any one of these nine (9!) things fail to materialize, including but not limited to the Texans beating the Jaguars on Sunday at NRG Stadium, the Colts are eliminated from playoff contention. Thus, while the Broncos' victory last night does increase the Colts' odds of winning the AFC South, things remain bleak for Indianapolis.
Frankly, I think John Harris put it best for Texans fans everywhere after the Bengals didn't come through last night:

Beat the Jaguars on Sunday and end this absurdity.
