How the AFC South teams stack up against the other teams in the league.
Team Off. Rush Pass 3rd down Pts. Def. Rush Pass 3rd down Pts.
HOU 17 19t 16 12 9t 8 11 9 3t 1t
IND 15 25 7 27t 20 27 19 30 12t 30
JAX 16 15 17 6t 16t 23 23 19t 3t 20
TEN 23t 31 15 15t 29t 24t 30 13 25t 27
Obviously the numbers can and will move a lot week-to-week early in the season.
The best things here are that Houston is tied with Tampa Bay in scoring defense and that Houston and Jacksonville were excellent on third-down defense.
The worst things here are the Titans picking up where they left off and ranking 31st in rushing offense. Also not good: The Colts' scoring defense and the Titans' run defense
It's only 1 week, but looks like the winner of our game, will be the team who can move the chains on 3rd down.
Whelp I think you called it. 0% on 3rd downs will definitely kill a drive...
