Where they stand in key categories
By Paul Kuharsky
Here's our weekly look at where the teams of the AFC South stand in key categories. I generally consider third-down efficiency super important. And points, of course, tend to trump all.
Some movement of note off of Week 3 games:
- The Colts moved from 24th to 14th in offense thanks to 437 yards against the Jaguars, and vaulted from 20th to 10th in third-down offense by converting 10 of 19 against Jacksonville.
- Indy’s rushing defense dropped from 14th to 25th thanks to Maurice Jones-Drew, but the passing defense jumped from 25th to 14th thanks to Blaine Gabbert.
- Jacksonville’s rushing offense moved from 23rd to 10th, also thanks to MJD.
- Out of the passing festival that was Lions-Titans, Tennessee’s passing offense went from 22nd to 10th, and its passing defense dropped from 20th to 30th.
