HOUSTON- Houston will have to fight hard to keep their division crown. They improved their secondary by signing Ed Reed and improved their WR's by drafting DeAndre Hopkins Fortunately Houston plays New England and Baltimore, both teams were hit hard in free agency and injuries, winning both of those games should help them get a #1 or #2 seed in the AFC.

INDIANAPOLIS- Indy has their coach Pagano back healthy again but lost Bruce Arians to Arizona. They lost Dwight Freeney and picked up Bjorn Werner. What was surprising last year was that Luck and Fleener did not hook up more often, will they rebuild the chemistry they had at Stanford ? I see Indianapolis taking a step backwards this season with a new Offensive Coordinator and maybe some of the enthusiasm of winning for the sick coach.

TENNESSEE - They have a decent passing game, but are dependent on their star RB Chris Johnson who should be able to put up big numbers against the teams from the AFC West but they also have to play the tough defenses of the NFC West which will lead to Johnson having a so - so season.

JACKSONVILLE - They are still rebuilding and actually had a good draft with some intriguing late round players like Ace Sanders and Dennard Robinson. Which will come first; Jacksonville in a playoff game, or them moving to L.A.?

The AFC South is lucky in that they play the worst division in the NFL, AFC West. THe bad part is they also play the best division in the NFL, the NFC West. The AFC South is probably the second best division in the AFC behind the AFC North.

I want to know why the Tennessee Titans get no love from the press?

Are there any Titans fans out there?
