Odds To Win AFC South Division: Houston Texans Bound To Repeat?
AFC South Division Odds
Here’s a breakdown of the AFC South division and the odds for four teams of coming out on top in the division during the 2013 NFL season.
As arguably one of the worst teams in the NFL every single year, the Jaguars haven’t improved during the off-season in order to right the ship in Jacksonville. Although a lot of stock is being placed in Blaine Gabbert and Justin Blackmon, the team simply isn’t very good and will have another rough season filled with disappointment.
It wasn’t all that long ago that the Titans were one of the most feared teams in the NFL with a defense that could take over a game. Things have definitely changed in Tennessee since that time with this team potentially on the rise, but nowhere near as talented as the two teams mentioned below.
Jake Locker and Chris Johnson may be ready for breakout seasons in 2013, but I’m not buying it.
Perhaps the biggest surprise of the 2012 NFL season was the Indianapolis Colts making the NFL playoffs. The Colts were lead by a rookie quarterback in Andrew Luck and defied the odds and the shadow of Peyton Manning in order to play exceptionally well and clinch a playoff berth.
Indianapolis may have been bounced early by the eventual Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens, but it was made clear that Luck is the real deal and this team isn’t rebuilding.
Although the Colts had a magical season and made the playoffs, Luck and company couldn’t hold a candle to the Texans.
Houston wasn’t only one of the best offenses in the NFL last season with Arian Foster leading way, but they were also one of the best defensively with J.J. Watt coming off a career year.
No team in this division will challenge the Texans and their attempts to win the division title once again.
