AFC South: Jerome Boger

Luis Deloureiro adds third-down efficiency to passer rating.

Handicapping wild-card contenders including Jacksonville and Houston with Clark Judge.

Houston Texans

Gary Kubiak defended his end-of-game strategy, said Eugene Wilson will miss time, said he’s sticking with Kris Brown and explained why he went with Chris Brown, from John McClain.

McClain tells Texans fans to be careful what they wish for.

Respectable is no longer good enough, says Richard Justice.

Brian Cushing denied tweeting complaints about the officiating in the Titans game, says McClain.

A replay of McClain’s chat.

Indianapolis Colts

By winning four consecutive games in the same season by a total margin of 10 points or fewer, the Colts have done something that’s never been done before, says Chappell.

Clint Session and Eric Foster have helped set the tone for the excellent defense, says Phillip B. Wilson.

Does Peyton Manning get too much respect from opposing coaches? John Oehser examines the question in two pieces: Part I and Part II.

Oehser reviews Polian on the radio. Peaking isn’t an issue; Anything that’s said or written is absolutely meaningless to the team; Joseph Addai is having a terrific year; Though what’s written or said about the team is absolutely meaningless, he was gratified that he didn’t see anything about the Colts being a finesse team after the win in Baltimore.

Yes, Manning has been this good before, says Deshawn Zombie.

The Colts waived Mike Hart and re-signed John Thomas, says Mike Chappell.

Jacksonville Jaguars

The Jaguars are about civic pride.

Can you feel the planets aligning for the Jaguars, asks Gene Frenette.

Rashean Mathis is out for San Francisco, meaning Tyron Brackenridge likely keeps a bigger role, says Vito Stellino.

A Q&A with Ernest Wilford from Michael C. Wright.

The Jaguars waived Adam Seward and signed Lamar Myles and James Wyche to their practice squad.

Why the Bills were able to slow the Jaguars’ run game, from Vic Ketchman.

The Jags’ identity and future are still unclear, says Gil Samson.

A late look: Richard Collier is at peace, says Jason Cole.

Tennessee Titans

Vince Young ran like a rookie again, says Jim Wyatt.

A different Young is steering the Titans on a different course, says David Climer.

Young is rewarding Bud Adams’ faith, says Alex Marvez.

David Barron provides an explanation of the Young-Jerome Boger high five.

Jeff Fisher rated Nick Harper’s return as solid, say Gary Estwick and Jim Wyatt.

The Titans had little intention of returning a punt in Houston, says Terry McCormick. How ambitious.
Matt Schaub doesn’t think the Texans blew it, but he’s being kind. He had a sleepless night. He and all of Houston. His interview with KILT in Houston.

Gary Brackett’s interception of Joe Flacco came on a familiar play, one he saw the week before from the Patriots. His interview with 1070 The Fan.

David Garrard visited with Colin Cowherd. He talked about what makes a good NFL quarterback and said he likes overtime as it is.

I think Vince Young’s high five with referee Jerome Boger was completely innocent. Young’s a very touchy feely guy, he likes to pat people on the butt and put his arm around shoulders. I mentioned in my column Monday night he did the first with another official and the second with Jeff Fisher during the course of the game. During stoppages of play, players often have good-natured conversations with officials. Are they buttering them up? Sometimes, sure. Other times they may be having a laugh over something not at all game-related. They could have been high-fiving the weather.
