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:
Thanks to Arian Foster, Houston jumped three spots in rushing offense. The Texans are also up two spots in third-down offense and down three spots in rush defense.
Indianapolis lost two spots in total offense, dropped from 19th to 23rd in rushing defense (also thanks to Foster) and slid three spots in third-down defense.
Jacksonville dropped from 30th to 31st in points, from 31st to last in rushing defense and from 25th to 28th in third-down defense.
Tennessee improved from 23rd to 19th in rushing, gained four spots in overall defense, two spots in rush defense and, thanks to Mark Sanchez, seven spots in pass defense.
