Finally we get to a division that Red pays attention to – not that it matters. This is the division of “Why do these towns have NFL teams anyway?”
Houston Texans – Red was shocked to witness in person the offensive onslaught that Deshaun Watson led against the Titans in October. That 57-14 ass whipping was as impressive an offensive show that Red has ever seen in a regular season NFL game. It made Red a believer. Red was also sadly present the next week when JJ Watt and Red favorite Whitney Mercilus went down in the space of about 57 seconds. Losing Watson, Watt and Mercilus was the death knell for the Texans season. Barring similarly crippling injuries this season, the Texans should be good enough to secure a playoff spot this year. A lot rides on that first game in New England. A win or even a credible loss will put this team on the right track. Texans are 10-6 and in.
Jacksonville Jaguars – Lots of pundits are writing off the Jaguars as one-hit wonders and shitting on journeyman QB Blake Bortles. BB may be mediocre but the rest of this team has enough talent to cover up the cracks. Jaguars are also 10-6 and lose tiebreaker to the Texans.
Tennesee Titans – Red wants to believe. Red also wants a job where you don’t have to show up and the money just sort of rolls in. Titans are 8-8 material.
Indianapolis Colts – The Colts are just an Andrew Luck away from mediocrity. They have no offensive line, one decent receiver, running backs???, defense???, coaching???. Colts are 6-10.
