How the AFC South can be won

December, 26, 2010
Here’s what you need to know about the AFC South title, which will be decided next Sunday.

The Indianapolis Colts are 9-6 and the Jacksonville Jaguars are 8-7.
  • If the Colts win against the Tennessee Titans at Lucas Oil Stadium, they win the division as they’ll win 10 games and the Jaguars can only win nine.
  • If the Jaguars lose at Houston, the Colts win the division because they’ll already have nine wins and the Jaguars will only have won eight.
  • If the Colts lose to the Titans and the Jaguars win at Houston, they’d both be 9-7 and the Jaguars would win the division because they’d have a better division record, 4-2 versus 3-3.

Both games are scheduled for 1 p.m. ET starts. But it's possible the Colts-Titans game could get flexed into the night slot.
