We've had a weekend without our favorite team playing a game. We've had a weekend without a disappointing loss. We've had a weekend without an exhilarating and perhaps even unexpected victory. We've also had a weekend where we were forced to watch what the other teams in the league were doing, thus allowing us to observe our competition a little more closely without the distraction of being focused solely on the home team. Are the Titans really a better team with VY? Are the Jaguars a team on the rise? At 5-4 the Texans could still go either way to finish the final stretch of the season. Which way are they going to finish? Up or down? After the bye week are you more or less optimistic?
