Around the AFC South: Kubiak's best, Titans' worst

Houston Texans

Matt Schaub and his receivers found their rhythm in a 28-17 win over the Bengals.

The Texans' no-name defense is emerging into stars, writes Jerome Solomon in the Houston Chronicle.

They're a defense that was able to slow down the NFL's leading rusher, Cedric Benson.

The Chronicle's Richard Justice thinks the win was Texans coach Gary Kubiak's "finest hour."

Indianapolis Colts

Coming off a bye week, the Colts have several of their injured stars closer to getting back on the field.

At 5-0, the Colts' new regime looks like it's off to a pretty good start.

Jacksonville Jaguars

It wasn't pretty, but the Jags found a way to win against the Rams, writes Jacksonville.com's Michael C. Wright.

Gene Frenette thinks the Jags showed resolve on Sunday.

Receiver Torry Holt came through in this bout against his former team, catching five passes for 101 yards.

The Rams made it easier on Jacksonville by playing conservatively, says Frenette.

Tennessee Titans

The Titans suffered a complete meltdown against New England, writes the Tennessean's Jim Wyatt.

No one in the locker room was pointing fingers at the Patriots running up the score in the 59-0 win.

For the second straight week, Titans quarterback Kerry Collins watched the offense work from the sideline.

Titans owner Bud Adam has no idea why his team is playing so poorly, but has no plans to fire coach Jeff Fisher.

The Tennessean's David Climer has a thought: Maybe this is just the worst Titans team ever.
