AFC South Week 12 NFL Power Rankings

Keeping track of the Texans and their AFC South brethren in silly arbitrary rankings of power? That sounds like fun! We’ll update in real time:

Pro Football Talk:
10) Colts (8)
15) Jaguars (19)
18) Titans (17)
24) Texans (22)

PFT plays it safe with small falls and rises. That's probably appropriate with the unsure AFC South.

NFL Fanhouse:
9) Colts (7)
14) Jaguars (15)
18) Titans (18)
22) Texans (20)

Another cautious, no real change power rankings from FanHouse. It's almost identical to PFT's to be honest.

9) Colts (5)
13) Jaguars (17)
19) Titans (15)
20) Texans (20)

CBS hammers Indy and Tennessee for losing, and awards Jacksonville for surviving their turnover-fest against Cleveland.

9) Colts (6)
14) Jaguars (17)
18) Titans (16)
24) Texans (19)

A last-second loss at the AFC East division leaders is worth more than a loss to a middling NFC East team and a subsequent meltdown. That makes a lot of sense.

Takeaways:
1) The Jaguars have finally leaped past the Titans, but there are a lot of comments expressing doubt about their ability to maintain this. No one believes in Jacksonville.
2) Despite the Titans completely coming apart at the seams, no one really dropped them. That's a lot of make-believe belief in Rusty Smith.
3) The Texans continue free-falling after another last minute loss. Heartbreaking as it is, I don't see how losing to a 7-2 team at home by 3 is worth the drops some of these rankings gave. I express my doubt at these rankings and the rankers, but I know #kubiakbelievesinyou.
4) They're all very similar. Did everyone copy each other?
