Eye on the Prize: AFC South Standings after Week Nine

Posted by Kevin Bowen on November 5, 2013 – 7:53 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 Nine:

Colts 27, Texans 24

-The Texans jumped out to a 21-3 halftime lead behind the prolific night of Andre Johnson. The Pro Bowl wide receiver had nine catches for 229 receiving yards and three touchdowns. New starting quarterback Case Keenum threw for 350 yards in his first home start. However, Houston could not make the necessary stops in the second half and dropped its sixth straight game. Houston will hit the road next week before three straight home games.

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

Titans 28, Rams 21

-In a back-and-forth road contest, the Titans made the plays in the final quarter to even their record at 4-4. Pro Bowl running back Chris Johnson had perhaps his best game of 2013 with 150 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Starting quarterback Jake Locker threw two interceptions but it was a 45-yard completion to Kendall Wright that set-up the game-winning score by Johnson. The Titans will play host to Jacksonville on Sunday before staying at home against the Colts a week from Thursday.

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

Bye Week

-The Jaguars will come off a bye week and hit the road to take on the Tennessee Titans this weekend.

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