2013 Scoreboard: Colts 2, Texans 0; Jaguars 2, Texans 0.
The Colts and Jaguars are getting considerably better in 2014 and the Texans are still maintaining the Status Quo.
That remains to be seen. We've all seen players that excel on one team, leave for a "sweet" F/A payday and then fail miserably with the new squad.
