Default Texans lead AFC South after week 1

I thing the texans could be leading the AFC South after week one with a little luck, a tough defense, and a manning showdown.

First off, Giants and colts colts lose
I am picking the Giants to win this game. I know it goes against conventional wisdom but upsets happen every year in season openers and this is my pick this year. I'll admit-this is a rose-colored view that incudes us getting all the breaks and the bad guys getting screwed but i think it is possible -very possible. I do actually have a few good reasons to think the giants can upset to throw in with the wishful thinking.

1-The giants have homefield advantage, for what it's worth.
2-Amani Toomer, Plaxico burress, Jeremy shockey, and tiki barber are all good reasons to think there is a chance.
3- Questionable blitz pickup with new Indy running backs.
4- giants/eli has more to prove
5- 11/5 isn't bad

Titans- Jets Titans lose (barely)

Ugly ugly ugly



Jacksonville-Dallas jacksonville loses


Dispite a sloppy showing by the o-line and mediocre running, Dallas will dominate with 2 tight end sets, screen passes and downfield acrobatics.Jacksonville will be short on defensive personnel this sunday also-
Injuries and arrests.

Houston-Iggles texans win!

Texans will run run run. Our defense is the one that will be the talk of the game. demeco,peek,and mario will all have a big day.
20-17 Texans


houston 1 0
tennesee 0 1
Indianapolis 0 1
Jacksonville 0 1

It looks like freeney and a few others could be out. The colts are looking thin on the d-line for this sunday.

I expect the Giants to run, run ,run

The Giants D should be one of the best this season. I hope they send the Colts home with their tail between their legs.

I think, another realm of possibility will be that The Titans and The Texans start off 1-0. Putting them in a tie to in the division. In which case, I wouldn't mind so much!

i dont think the colts are gonna lose on sunday, and the titans i think will beat the jets, and McNabb is a real good QB and has been really good this preseason, but i think the texas will win
so i think the texans, colts and titans will be all 1-0

I think Indy is a very overrated team this year. They have lost a lot and have been very fortunate the last couple of years with respect to injuries. Manning does not like pressure. He is going to miss one of the best running back - pass protectors in the league. When pressured Manning is no different than any other QB in the league, he makes mistakes plus he gets emmotional. Upset his pyschy and you win the game. He likes to intimmidate the officials, the opposition and his coaches, but when he doesn't get his way he is easily beaten.

you said the giants v. colts with a giants victory was THE upset of opening day?! The Texans beating the Eagles isn't an upset?

Actually, I think the Texans beating the Eagles would mostly be an upset to the Eagles Fans. If you can believe the experts it will be a close game.

a former 2 -14 team beating a team that should've gone to the playoffs last year is an upset in my book.
