 the Colts’ opening day matchup against the Bengals coming on Sunday http://www.indianapoliscoltsteamonline.com/nate-hairston-jersey , it made sense to have a look around the AFC South to get a look at what our divisional foes will be facing in the first four weeks of the season, and how they stack up. Let’s get to it.Tennessee TitansJim Brown-USA TODAY SportsI don’t know what to think about the Titans. For two seasons I’ve predicted that they would be the best team in the AFC South. They seem perched on the edge of relevance, but it took the abysmal performances of the Texans and Colts, as well as a fairly easy schedule to get them to a 9-7 record and a playoff berth. They’ll face a much tougher schedule this season and they cannot afford to falter early. After their week one road trip to Miami, they’ll come home to face Houston, before traveling to Jacksonville. They’ll end the first quarter of the season at home against the defending Super Bowl Champion Eagles. It is very conceivable that they could finish that stretch 1-3 and 2 games back in the division, which would make a tough climb for a pretty balanced, but ultimately unspectacular team.That fast start will be made even tougher by the fact that they have had several valuable contributors to the team, right tackle Jack Conklin, linebacker Brian Orakpo, and rookie first round pick Rashaan Evans, miss all or much of the preseason with injuries. They’ll need to hit the ground running, and injuries can significantly complicate that effort.Houston TexansShanna Lockwood-USA TODAY SportsThe Houston Texans are my pick to win the division. This is a team that was absolutely decimated by injuries last season, and has gotten a lot of serious players back in the offseason. J.J. Watt is back and healthy, and that counts for a lot. We are due for him to stick around for a little bit, and as much as I want to beat the Texans, watching Watt disrupt whole games on his own was really enjoyable, so I’d love to see one more season of him at his peak. Just not against the Colts. Whitney Mercilus is also back, and putting these guys up front to get after the passer means this is a scary defense.Perhaps most importantly for their team, second year passer Deshaun Watson looks to be fully back from his ACL tear. Watson is an electrifying player with game-changing ability, and although he found himself on the right side of a lot of possible turnover situations last season, and benefited from more than a little good fortune with some of his errant throws, overall he showed himself a dangerous playmaker who takes this team and offense to another level.The first quarter of the season looks like one that the Texans can be successful in. They’ll travel to Foxboro for their season opener against New England, and the head to face the Titans in Nashville, before a home game against the Giants. They’ll finish off the first quarter in Indianapolis against the Colts. They will likely be favored in all these games with the exception of the game against New England. However Authentic Quincy Wilson Jersey , getting wins against the Titans and Colts would give them a two-game lift in the division. If they could get out of this stretch 3-1 they would be thrilled.Jacksonville JaguarsDouglas DeFelice-USA TODAY SportsThe Jaguars are certainly a very talented team on the defensive side of the ball. They have got the football cognoscenti firmly behind them as a team that is right in their Super Bowl window and should be equipped to beat just about anyone they face.However, there are several questions that I have about this team that lead me to believe this won’t be quite the year many are expecting for the Jaguars.First, how do they plan to score points? The problem with this team is that they don’t have any real threats in the passing game. The loss of Marquis Lee was a big blow to a thin wide receiver corps, and Blake Bortles is not going to do all that well if he is throwing to All-Pro’s, let alone just a bunch of guys. Leonard Fournette cannot be the only offensive weapon on this team, and I am not sure they have any other reliable ones.Second, this is a team that stayed relatively healthy in the 2017 season. They didn’t lose key players to injury and they didn’t get killed by mistakes from their quarterback. With Watson and Luck both healthy in their division, the chances are high that they’ll find themselves in at least a couple shootouts, which bodes ill for Blake Bortles. You can only hide your quarterback for so long, and expecting another such injury free season for the defense is naive. It is too much to ask your defense to have another performance like 2017, but that is what it will take for this team to win games.The good news for them is that the first month is relatively winnable. They have a road game against the Giants before coming home for three straight against the Patriots, Titans, and Jets. Realistically, there is no reason they can’t come away with 4 wins here and start their season undefeated, but reason tells me they’re likely to lose at least one. Still, a 3-1 start would be something they could be pretty pleased with, so long as the Titans weren’t their one loss. Carson Wentz has been waiting for this moment since he tore up his knee last December.No. 11 will be back under center for the Philadelphia Eagles (1-1) against the Indianapolis Colts (1-1) on Sunday after watching his teammates win the Super Bowl without him in February, and missing the first two games this season."It's been a long time coming," Wentz said. "It's been quite the grind of an offseason. There's a lot of excitement, a lot of built-up almost anxiety over when it was going to be that time, and almost relief finally being cleared to get back out there."Nick Foles, the Super Bowl MVP in Philadelphia's 41-33 win over New England, returns to the sideline to make way for Wentz, who finished third in NFL MVP voting after setting a single-season franchise record with 33 touchdown passes and helping the Eagles go from 7-9 to 13-3.Wentz will wear a brace on his left knee — he tore his ACL and LCL in Week 14 diving into the end zone on a scramble. He doesn't plan to change the way he plays, but understands the importance of avoiding hits."I feel extremely confident moving around Womens Anthony Walker Jersey , on the run," he said. "Even last year, I never said I'm a running quarterback. I never want to be. But I'll find ways to extend time in the pocket and make plays down the field. I don't think that's ever going anywhere."Eagles coach Doug Pederson isn't going to alter his game plan or his philosophy to accommodate a quarterback returning from injury, even if it's the face of the franchise."I'm not going to coach scared. I'm not going to coach paranoid," Pederson said. "I'm not going to go in thinking, 'Oh no, we can't do 'this,' we can't do 'that.' We just have to continue to go play and I (have) to coach that way. That's where the confidence with the team comes, by doing that."Here are some things to know about the Colts-Eagles matchup:REICH'S RETURN:Colts coach Frank Reich was Philadelphia's offensive coordinator the previous two seasons and is one of the most liked guys to come through the team's building. He has a close relationship with Pederson and texted back and forth with him this week."I am as close with Doug as I am with anybody in this profession," Reich said. "I just think the world of him. I think he's a superior coach. He's an incredible coach and an incredible person."The familiarity could give the Colts an advantage."We feel like they know us and we know them, even though we don't see each other every year," Pederson said. "I'm excited to see Frank again. But at the same time we're up on the things that he could make them aware of."FAVORITE TARGETWentz will have Jordan Matthews back in the huddle with him. Matthews was traded to Buffalo last August but signed with the Eagles this week to bolster a depleted receivers corps. He was Wentz's top target in 2016 and the two were close friends off the field."Obviously, with Jordan, I feel good with him," Wentz said. "He was gone only one season. He's picking up things pretty quickly."CAPTAIN ANDREWThe Colts got Andrew Luck back in Week 1 after playing without him for an entire season. Luck is benefiting from Reich's new offense that's designed for quick passes. His completion rate is 71.4 percent, but he does have three picks."I feel I have a lot to improve on and that's exciting," Luck said. "It makes practice fun.BURNED DEEPRyan Fitzpatrick torched Philadelphia's secondary last week in Tampa's 27-21 win, throwing for 402 yards and four TDs, including a pair of 75-yard scores. The Eagles know they have to eliminate the big plays."We were a sloppy defense in that game," defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said. "Our tackling wasn't as good as it normally is, our technique wasn't as good as it normally is. Our pursuit and things like that got a little bit sloppy at times. We need to do a better job."MISSING MANThe Eagles traded up in the second round to select tight end Dallas Goedert and expectations were high after an impressive preseason. But Goedert has only played 34 snaps and has one catch through two games. Considering the Eagles were missing two of their top three receivers last week, it's surprising Goedert wasn't part of the offense."We have a talented player in Dallas, and we need to find more ways to get him involved," offensive coordinator Mike Groh said.
