    So, last year, during the regular season, against teams that ended the season over 500, the teams that were in the championship game shook out like this:
    Saints: 83%
    Patriots: 71%
    Rams: 63%
    Chiefs: 43%

    We were at 50%.

    Loving the context... so where does that .289 fall "over that period"?

    I count only 7 games with teams over 500.
    This was our record.
    3/4 .429

    Teams over 500 by year:

    2014 - 8 Games, 2 Wins, 6 Losses, .250
    2015 - 5 Games, 2 Wins, 3 Losses, .400
    2016 - 8 Games, 3 Wins, 5 Losses, .375
    2017 - 10 Games, 1 Win, 9 Losses, .100
    2018 - 7 Games, 3 Wins, 4 Losses, .429

    And just as a sidenote to stay on topic the Texans, Colts & Titans are all 2-2. The Jaguars are playing right now so we could end up with all 4 teams being 2-2.

    Jags came back to win. AFC South bipolar teams. None of these teams are consistent or legitimately competitive.

    In others league news. TB put up 55 points to beat LA.

    The Texans were at 43% .... 3-4.


    I think the bigger thing is comparing anyone to the Pats. They are a unicorn …. cant compare any team in the history of the league to them over a 17 year stretch.

    Interesting that the Chiefs were also 3-4 against those .500+ teams. This year all the teams they have faced so far are .500 or better and they are 4-0.
    Each team the Texans have played are also at least .500 and they are 2-2 …. .500.

    Today's loss was disappointing , I think the better "team" lost …. outcoached again.
    Watson had an off day , the OL was terrible again …. Tunsil may have had his worst game as a Texan , sure is looking like a huge overpay there - at least to this point.

    The defense was pretty darn good …. Mercilus may play his way outa Houston's price range if he keeps this up.

    Well, the good is that out of the division we have by far the easiest week 5 matchup. However, given that the Chiefs are on deck any division lead may be short-lived.

    We are 1-0 in the division. How about the others? I'd say watch out for Jacksonville. We won't win on their field. They will surprise many.

    No problem. The Texans are good at being the best of the worst in the AFC South and making the playoffs. It's just what happens after that seems to be the problem.

    The AFC south is far from the worst, in fact it maybe the most balanced division because it doesn't have one or two teams that completely dominate it. East Pats have feasted on a weak division for a decade now, West was fairly competitive when Rivers was younger and pre-Mahomes but now its pretty much just the Chiefs and North has the Bengals and the Browns so its just been a trade off each year between the Steelers and Ravens as to who is going to win that one. South has had Texans and Colts trading blows but even the hags and the tits haven't been as bad as fins, browns, jets or bengals.

    Before week 4 began

    Texans 2-1
    Colts 2-1
    Jaguars 1-2
    Titans 1-2

    The AFC South Division standings

    Texans 1-0
    Jaguars 1-1
    Colts 1-0
    Titans 0-2

    After week 4

    Texans 2-2
    Titans 2-2
    Jaguars 2-2
    Colts 2-2

    The division standings didn't change since there wasn't a division game.

    Falcons at Texans
    The Texans should win this one, but with O'Brien at the helm, it's going to be a rough one. Texans should be 3-2 after this one.

    Jaguars at Panthers
    The Jaguars defense should help them big in this game and their shiny new quarterback, Gardner Minshew, will lead this offense right past the Jaguars. Jaguars could be 3-2 after this one.

    Bill at Titans
    The Bills are looking very good. The Titans are inconsistent. Since this game is in Tennessee the Titans get a slight edge. They might be able to pull this one off, but the Bills could go in there and torch them. It's a toss up. Let's just say the Bills win. After this game, the Titans could be 2-3.

    Colts at Chiefs
    The Chiefs will torch the Colts. After this one, the colts will be 2-3.

    After week 5 this is how the records could look.

    Texans 3-2
    Jaguars 3-2
    Titans 2-3
    Colts 2-3

    Since there are no division games this week, the division record will remain the same.

    After the Texans annihilated the Falcons, the Colts shocked the Chiefs, the Jaguars surprisingly lost to the Panthers and the Titans suffered a loss to the Bills , here is what the division looks like going into week 6.

    Texans 3-2
    Colts 3-2
    Jaguars 2-3
    Titans 2-3

    Since there were no division games this week, the AFC South looks the same.

    Texans 1-0
    Colts 1-0
    Jaguars 1-1
    Titans 0-2

    Texans at Chiefs
    With the Texans going into Arrow Head Stadium against the Chiefs, this is going to to be a Watson fireworks show. The Colts gave the league the blue print for defeating the Chiefs and the Texans will expound on that. The Texans go up to 4-2 after this one.

    The Colts get the week off so their record will remain at 3-2.

    Saints at Jaguars
    The Saints will go marchin' through the Jaguars. After this one, the Jaguars could be sitting at 2-4.

    Titans at Broncos
    The Titans will be going into Mile High against a reeling Broncos team that isn't very good. The Titans very well could come out of this one on top with a record of 3-3

    So after week 6, this is what the AFC South could look like.

    Texans 4-2
    Colts 3-2
    Titans 3-3
    Jaguars 2-4

    The AFC South again aren't playing any division games so the division record will remain the same.

    Yep,

    The AFC North/East are much worse divisions than the AFC South. There are no gimme's in he AFC South unlike those other divisions.

    People who think the AFC South is weak either 1. Dont know what they're talking about 2. Trying to use this to discredit what BOB has/will done/will do.

    There are plenty of reasons to not like BOB but using the division as a reason for wanting him gone isn't correct. Finally the long standing issues with the team on the OL have been taken care of and there's some depth at the skill positions. The Texans are only going to get better as they get more experience. The defense is lacking in depth particularly in the secondary and they need to stay healthy.
