    Jaguars stand alone on top of the AFC South With the victory against the New York Giants on Sunday , the Jacksonville Jaguars find themselves in sole possession of first place in the AFC South. Every other team lost on Sunday, some in more brutal fashion than others. Let’s take a spin around the AFC South.Titans 20, Dolphins 27A brutal game that I hope no one stayed for in it’s duration. There were multiple hours-long weather delays and in total I think it lasted around nine hours. Could you imagine? Not only that, the Titans were ravaged with injuries, while also playing terribly. Tight end Delanie Walker saw his season end with a nasty ankle injury, Taylor Lewan was brutally knocked unconscious and left the game and Marcus Mariota is either very hurt or got benched after not being able to hit the ocean from the beach.Texans 20, Patriots 27Meanwhile in Foxboro , the Texans didn’t look anything close to the “surprise” dark horse team a lot of experts had them pegged as. While I’m still a big fan of Deshaun Watson as a quarterback, he was under duress and beat up all day. The Patriots, who aren’t really a great team rushing the passer, were in the backfield all game and the Texans lost their starting right tackle making an already suspect offensive line worse. Couple that with the defense not playing all that well and J.J. Watt kind of looking like just a guy, it could be a long season for Houston.Bengals 34, Colts 23The Colts were only surprising because I did not expect Andrew Luck to ever play again as well as he did, considering his injuries. Unfortunately for the Colts Authentic Austin Seferian-Jenkins Jersey , he might get knocked out again this year because they’re offensive line and roster in general are flat out terrible. The Colts couldn’t run the ball, struggled to stop the run and needed Luck to throw the ball 53 times to even be close!If I’m going to making a hyperbolic opinion off of Week 1, I think it would be that there’s a big gap between the Jaguars and the rest of the division right now. The Jacksonville Jaguars have decided to go back to quarterback Blake Bortles for the finale against the Houston Texans, announcing on Wednesday that he would make the start. It’s not too much of a surprise, given how ineffective the offense remained after he was benched in favor of Cody Kessler.Kessler was pulled from the game on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, where after the opening touchdown drive, the offense went nonexistent. Bortles was inserted into the game and ran a few read option plays and led the team to a go-ahead field goal , and the game was later cemented for the Jaguars with a Telvin Smith pick-six.Bortles was benched after the Jaguars lost to the Buffalo Bills a few weeks ago and most figured that was the last we would see of Bortles as a Jaguars player barring injury. While Kessler didn’t necessarily get injured, it was clear with the state of the Jaguars offense as it is right now, he was just going to get hit repeatedly when dropping back to pass. Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone intimated as much in his post game press conference when he explained why he went back to Bortles. That same line of thought went into his decision for this Sunday against the Texans as he said that Bortles’ mobility was a big reason he’ll be the starter for the season finale.
