The AFC South is a cruel and bizarre mistress. Teams that should be winning by a clear margin are stagnating. Those who should be stagnating are seemingly managing to subsist to a degree in which they can achieve a lofty standing atop the division. To think we are only a season removed from the days in which the AFC South was the NFL’s trashcan to a day in which three teams are looking to ascend to what was hoped to be a strong division. Fun times.
The Texans have recovered from a 0-3 start to claw their way back to 3-3. The Jaguars started strongly with two wins that included a pasting of the New England Patriots in Foxborough. Blake Bortles, however, imploded and Leonard Fournette has not played for a few weeks, so Jacksonville’s offense is about as effective as the ocean is for quenching a thirst.
