The Jets host the Colts tonight, but fans from both teams have likely steeled themselves against any thoughts of their team playing for a championship at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas in February. That’s not to say that it won’t be a good competitive game, and it never hurts Texans fans to keep a keen eye on an AFC South competitor that is fighting for a division title.
Indy still has a legitimate shot at winning the AFC South, but they are a shell of the team that once pushed deep into the playoffs. Andrew Luck will do his part through the final stretch of the season, but the Colts are not ready to threaten the AFC’s top performing teams like the Patriots or Raiders. Just last week, Indy was humiliated 28-7 at home by the Steelers (6-5).
The New York Jets put up a valiant effort against the Patriots last week, only to lose in the end 22-17 to seal their fate for the 2016 campaign. Draft talk should dominate the airwaves and blogs dedicated to this team for the remainder of the year.
