Eye on the Prize: AFC South Standings Week One

Posted by Kevin Bowen on September 10, 2013 – 12:47 pm

Each week Colts.com will take a look at the rest of the AFC South and review the previous weekend’s games.

Here is a look at the AFC South after Week One:

Titans 16, Steelers 9

-The Titans defense was dominant all Sunday long, not allowing a point until 1:23 left in the fourth quarter. Defensively, Tennessee sacked Pittsburgh quarterback Ben Roethlisberger five times and picked him off once. Tennessee’s scoring came from three Rob Bironas field goals and a three-yard touchdown run by Jackie Battle. The Titans out-rushed the Steelers 112-to-32 and held the ball for nine minutes longer than the home team.

NEXT GAME: @Houston, Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST

Chiefs 24, Jaguars 2

-The Jaguars got off to a fast start on Sunday afternoon with a safety but after that it was a struggle. Quarterback Blaine Gabbert struggled with a 16-of-35, 121-yard, two-interception afternoon. Backup quarterback Chad Henne replaced Gabbert following an interception returned for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter. Maurice Jones-Drew was held to just 45 rushing yards on 15 carries and the Jacksonville offensive line allowed six sacks on the afternoon.

NEXT GAME: @Oakland, Sunday at 4:25 p.m. EST

Texans 31, Chargers 28

-Down 28-7 late in the third quarter, Houston looked to be staring at an 0-1 record to start the season. That would quickly change though as Matt Schaub threw two touchdowns in a little over five minutes and outside linebacker Brian Cushing had a pick six of Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. That tied the score at 28 with over 9 minutes left in the fourth quarter. Houston would then complete the comeback with kicker Randy Bullock converting a 41-yard field goal as the clock struck triple zeros in San Diego.

NEXT GAME: Tennessee, Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST
