The Tennessee Titans had a rough Sunday, even without playing a game.
With all three of their division rivals winning this week, the Tennessee Titans currently sit in last place in the AFC South.
- Houston Texans (2-1)
- Indianapolis Colts (2-1)
- Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2)
- Tennessee Titans (1-2)
As for the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts: both won their respective games on Sunday and are ahead of the Jags and Titans, with Houston owning the early first place tiebreaker.
Houston found itself down by 10 going into the second half against the Los Angeles Chargers after a slow start on the road.
Deshaun Watson then once again showed why he’s the best quarterback in the division and the Texans offense flipped the switch in the second half, outscoring LA 20-3 en route to a 27-20 victory.
More impressively, Houston showed some toughness on defense and limited Philip Rivers and the Chargers offense to just a field goal in the final two quarters. The Texans now sit at 2-1, and could be 3-0 if not for a last-second loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 1.
Another AFC South team that earned an impressive win was the Colts.
A week after the Atlanta Falcons got a huge win over the Philadelphia Eagles, the Colts welcomed them to Indy and got off to a fast start, jumping out to a 20-3 lead. You had to figure the Falcons’ high-powered offense would make this one a game, and that they did after dropping 21 points on the Colts in the final two quarters.
But Jacoby Brissett had himself a great game, throwing for over 300 yards and two touchdowns, and the Colts were able to fend off Matt Ryan and the Falcons for a 27-24 victory.
The Colts and Texans will meet for the first time this season in Week 7 in Indianapolis, which could determine who the true class of the AFC South is at that point in the season if both squads can continue on their current paths.
It was a brutal Week 3 for the Titans overall. Not only did they drop their divisional game with the Jags, they also fell behind the rest of the division and were the lone AFC South team to lose.
Tennessee will have its work cut out for it moving forward with what is shaping up to be a very tough division.
