AFC South links: Saturday picks Manning

Houston Texans

One of the biggest challenges facing new defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is fixing the Texans' secondary, writes Nick Scurfield.

Indianapolis Colts

Indianapolis is right in the crosshairs of the NFL's labor battle, writes Dan Parr.

Wide receiver Austin Collie "feels good" and is showing no ill effects of last year's concussions, writes Mike Chappell in the Indy Star.

Colts center Jeff Saturday landed at No. 59 on the NFL Network's Top 100 players of 2011 list. He took that opportunity to lobby for his quarterback Peyton Manning over New England's Tom Brady. “Listen, nothing against (Tom) Brady, obviously I got a ton of respect for him, but man, Peyton, he’s a different level,” Saturday said. “With as many MVPs as he’s had, the guy shows up each and every week ready to play and his numbers support it.”

Jacksonville Jaguars

Former Jaguars tight end Ernest Wilford has settled a charge of resisting arrest. He pleaded no contest and was ordered to pay $303 in court costs.

Tennessee Titans

Titans receiver Damian Williams wants to be on the field more in his second NFL season, writes Jim Wyatt.
