Week 15 AFC South Schedule & Picks - Division Title On The Line In Indy

New, 1 comment

Houston Texans (5-8) @ Tennessee Titans (5-8), Noon CT, CBS
The Line: Tennessee -1.5
The First Match-Up: Tennessee 0, Houston 20
The Experts: ESPN has Houston 5-3, CBS is 4-1 Texans, and Yahoo is 3-0 for the good guys as well.

Everyone knows that the media will put the focus on Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan's rematch, but I don't expect punches. I do expect Johnson to have a big day as he'll be focused on embarrassing the smaller Finnegan.

Kerry Collins will be more effective than Rusty Smith, but the Titans offense lacks explosiveness. The Texans should continue playing tough against the run, and Collins' arm won't be enough to win it.

The Pick: Texans 34, Titans 23

Jacksonville Jaguars (8-5) @ Indianapolis Colts (7-6), Noon CT, CBS
The Line: Indianapolis -5
The First Match-Up: Indianapolis 28, Jacksonville 31
The Experts: ESPN has a 4-4 split, CBS is 5-0 Colts, and Yahoo is 2-1 Jaguars.

Peyton Manning rebounded nicely from his 11 interception nightmare, but the key to the game is how will Indianapolis handle Maurice Jones-Drew and Rashad Jennings. Jacksonville's winning because of the dominant run game, and I can't see Indianapolis stopping them. Manning will keep up with the Jaguars, but Jack Del Rio's smart enough to stick with what is working.

The Pick: Jaguars 30, Colts 27
