Eye on the Prize: Week Seven AFC South Standings

Posted by Kevin Bowen on October 16, 2013 – 9:00 am

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 after Week Six:

Rams 38, Texans 16

-The downward spiral for the Texans continued in a blowout home loss to the Rams. A 17-6 halftime deficit quickly turned ugly as the Rams scored touchdowns in all three phases during the third quarter. Houston quarterback Matt Schaub was benched for T.J. Yates. However, Yates threw a pair of interceptions, including one that was returned 98 yards for a touchdown. Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster did rush for 141 yards on 20 carries.

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

Seahawks 20, Titans 13

-Tennessee hung tough into the fourth quarter in one of the toughest road environments in the NFL. The Titans lone touchdown came on a 77-yard blocked field goal returned for a touchdown at the end of the first half. Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick made his first start in place of Jake Locker and threw two interceptions. Running back Chris Johnson was held to 33 rushing yards on 12 carries. The tough stretch for the Titans continues next week with San Francisco coming to Nashville.

NEXT GAME: San Francisco, Sunday at 4:05 p.m. EST

Broncos 35, Jaguars 19

-In a game where no one gave the Jaguars a chance, Jacksonville was down just 21-19 midway through the third quarter. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew rushed for 71 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Chad Henne threw for 303 yards and the Jaguars have found a go-to target in Justin Blackmon. Henne and Blackmon hooked up 14 times for 190 receiving yards. Next up for Jacksonville is a pair of NFC West home games.

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

    Don’t wanna jinks a team but it sometimes takes only one injury to turn a season around for the worst. Praying that all players remain safe.
