Possible. The AFC South might be the most competitive division in the AFC with three teams going to the playoffs. The Colts (of course), The Jaguars, and the Texans. Titans finish 7-9.

Very possible. They have improved as well.

It's all about injuries and depth. What teams can avoid them and what teams can overcome them?

They can, but Jacksonville will have to slip a little bit. Tennessee cannot be counted on and Indy is still going to be good, but probably not as good as they were. It's also possible to be 9-7 and not go to the playoffs in this conference. If Houston can go 10-6, they'll be in. One thing to remember about this year's Texans isn't the players, but new assistant head coach Alex Gibbs. It is he who will make all the difference with Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson, and rookie Steve Slaton. Gibbs is a genius with implementing his style of the running game, and he'll be working with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in incorporating zone blocking for the linemen. That will be the key to improving the overall offensive execution. It should be fun to watch and they'd better stay healthy this time around.

Definitely possible! They have improved their roster dramatically especially on Defense. If they can at least split their two games with Indy and Jacksonville, they have a shot. I can totally see them win 9 or 10 games and get in.

The Browns and Bungals aren't that smart to cheat.
I'm actually an Eagles fan and yes every team cheats.. Holding is cheating, happens every offensive snap, teams steal signs, cheating is part of the game..

Sounds like you need to wake up and realize cheating is part of the game.. The real task is not getting caught.. Have you ever played sports?

I am awake.. The question is are you? Get your head out of the sand. You're not answering my question, who the hell are you to know who cheats and who doesn't and the extent of it or whatever? Yes, I've played sports at collegiate level even not that it's related to anything we're talking about.

Have your opinion, I'll have mine but don't judge me and come down on me with some lame excuse I've heard too many times. I don't have to think like you. Cheating is cheating is cheating and is cheating period. I'd rather lose with honor and good sportsmanship rather than winning by cheating, that doesn't count in my book.
