10. Indianapolis Colts (9 - 7)

The Colts kept their playoff hopes alive with the victory over the Raiders, 23 - 20, and will face off against the Houston Texans this weekend. The winner of this game will likely be in the playoffs and have a shot at the division title depending on the outcome of the Jaguars game against the Titans.

9. Houston Texans (9 - 7)

Here is another of the AFC South teams, with three of them, the Colts, Texans, and Jaguars all ranking 8 - 10 in this poll, and all three tied at 9 - 7. The Texans handled the Titans with ease, downing them 26 - 3 and keeping their playoff and division title hopes alive. The Texans also welcomed C.J. Stroud back under center and now look to make that final playoff push.

8. Jacksonville Jaguars (9 - 7)

Here is the final AFC South team, taking our top ranking among the three. After defeating the Carolina Panthers 26 - 0, they maintain their position atop the South division. They are in a win-and-in scenario with their upcoming battle with the Titans. The stakes are high but simple, beat the inferior 5 - 11 Titans team and win the division and the fourth seed of the AFC playoffs. Lose and you might be going home for the offseason.
