Houston Texans—Houston suffered through a 4-12 season finishing in last place in the AFC South division. Texans found their quarterback of the future in Deshaun Watson. He was excellent under center completing 61.8% of his passes for 1699 yards with 19 touchdowns and 8 picks. He was lost in week eight with a knee injury. Watson is expected to return healthy. Pass rusher JJ Watt has been hampered by injuries the past two seasons. Houston fell to 32nd and last in the NFL in scoring defense allowing 27.2 points per game.

Jacksonville Jaguars—Jacksonville were the division winners finishing with a 10-6 record. They won two playoff games last year beating Buffalo 10-3 at home in a defensive struggle in the wildcard round. Jaguars had the Steelers number last year and drew them in the divisional round and beat Pittsburgh 45-42. Jacksonville was competitive in the AFC Championship Game against New England losing 24-20 on a late Patriots touchdown. Jaguars were the number two defense in the NFL holding teams to 286 yards and 16.8 points per game. Quarterback Blake Bortles has been maligned by mistakes in his career but maybe the confidence gained in 2017 and the backing of the number one rushing attack can propel Bortles to a higher efficiency rating.

Tennessee Titans—Tennessee finished at 9-7 and by surprise to many made the playoffs as a wildcard team. They traveled to Kansas City as an 8 ½ point underdog and beat the Chiefs in the AFC Wildcard 22-21 with a huge second half comeback. The following week was a 35-14 road defeat at New England in the divisional round. The Titans offense sputtered last year as they sat 23rd in the league. Titans were good against the run but 25th in the league in defending the pass.

Indianapolis Colts—It was a down season for the Colts as they finished with a mark of 4-12. There was a coaching change as former Buffalo Bills backup quarterback Frank Reich takes over. The health of quarterback Andrew Luck is the key to the success of this team. He has been hampered by a shoulder injury due to lack of protection from his offensive line during his playing career. Reports are optimistic for a return in Week 1, but this is a story to follow thoroughly in the preseason. Indianapolis has been weak for years on defense and saw no improvement in 2017 with 30th ranking in overall and scoring defense.
