    Week 1

    How will this week fair for the AFC South and where will the Texans stand after they finish the 1st week of the NFL regular season? Let's take a look at all 4 teams and their opponents.

    Texans at Saints - The Texans travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints in the Super Dome on Monday Night Football. It will be a loud, raucous atmosphere to play football in. It should be a high scoring, close game. These teams match up pretty evenly on paper. How will they play on the field? We'll see. Should the Texans win, and let's hope they do, they could start the season 1-0

    Jaguars vs Chiefs - The Chiefs will travel to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars in TIAA Bank Field. Nick Foles will be starting opposite Patrick Mahomes. What a mismatch. The Chiefs should win this one running away. The Jaguars likely start 0-1

    Titans at Browns - The Titans travel to Cleveland to take on the Browns at Firstenergy Stadium. This one pits Marcus Mariota against the young phenom Baker Mayfield. The way the Browns went out and bought a team this off season, with the power they have, they should leave the Titans and Mariota in the dust. The Titans will likely start 0-1

    Colts at Chargers - The Colts travel to San Diego to take on the Chargers in Rokit Field At Dignity Health Sports Park. With the retirement of Andrew Luck, the Colts are in the Hands of Jacoby Brissett. He will be facing Phillip Rivers on the other side. Back up vs true starter. Chargers win.
    The Colts will likely be 0-1

    After the 1st week, the AFC South could very well look like this...
    Texans 1-0
    Jaguars 0-1
    Titans 0-1
    Colts 0-1

    The Texans could finish week 1 in first place in the AFC South. Let's see what happens and hope the Texans can come out on top against a very good Saints team.

    Go get it Texans!

    Your reasoning plus my reasoning equals all four AFC South teams starting 0-1. I think that would be hilarious.

    So you have
    Texans 0-1
    Jaguars 0-1
    Titans 1-0
    Colts 1-0
    Could happen but I hope not.

    Out of those games I'll go with the Titans having the best chance to win.

    Everyone else may start 0-1. Reason being I have no confidence in OB outsmarting Sean Payton at his building.

    Realistically I agree Titans have the best shot in first week. I could be wrong but I don't expect much from the colts this season. Luck really screwed them over and even if their new QB is good how comfortable will he be and how well will the line be able to protect him.

    Saints v Texans - We lose mainly b/c we've never started out the season well under BoB, the superdome & lots of new pieces to integrate.

    Chiefs v Jags - This will be telling in terms of how good the Jags are this year. I'm picking the Chiefs b/c I don't think offensively they can keep up with the chiefs offensively.

    Titans v Browns - Think the Browns win this one but its going to be close...probably the game of the week imo. Browns will struggle early but the talent overwhelms the Titans suspect defense in the end.

    Colts v Chargers - Colts might actually win this just b/c of their defense..& it appears Gordon's gonna miss wk. 1..huge blow to that offense. Plus, I just don't think the Chargers are that good...last year was a fluke for them.

    Chargers are supposed to be shopping Gordon for a first+ something else. I guess we could give them our 2035 pick, we still have that one, right?

    Very good chance we're tied for 1st after week 1, at 0-1. Quick, who would have the tie-breaker edge?

    Every AFC south team is an underdog.

    With Luck's retirement we're the crappiest division again

    Texans, because their loss would be out of conference.

    Would be awesome! But, then I remember who the head coach is.

    Aggressive moves/actions by leadership tend to inspire aggressive actions in the troops. I lean to the Texans taking this one in a good exciting game. I believe many, if not most, of those on the team feel now is the time...let's go get it.

    Go Texans!

    You realize if it wasn't for the Pats being there the AFC east would be by far the worst division.

    AFC East, NOrth is Ravens, Steelers, Browns and Bengals, should be a good one. Get what you mean though. They get a free pass every year, but prove they are not a regular season baby killer only

    Beating the Saints at home would go a long way to set the tone for the season. Praying for the best, but kinda expecting the worst here. New Orleans has had a heartbreaking event end each of their last two seasons. Im guessing those guys are going to come out and run roughshod over the NFC. My SB pick is actually New Orleans so lets see how those rootin', tootin', Texan shootin' boys from Kirby handle their buisness this week.

    On the other hand it could go extememly bad and...... (to be continued)

    I was about to say something similar... who cares!? Pats have been feasting on horrible divisions for what, 15 seasons now?
