The Texans can still win in the playoffs, but there is no real evidence to support the claim, says Jerome Solomon of the Houston Chronicle.
Gary Kubiak has to at least consider a quarterback change after a tough game for T.J. Yates in the loss at Indianapolis, says Solomon.
Was that a great win for the Colts or rotten Luck, asks Bob Kravitz of the Indianapolis Star. It could help the Colts move out of the No. 1 draft slot and have ramifications for next year and maybe 15 years.
Reggie Wayne had been advising Dan Orlovsky just to throw it left, and that’s what the quarterback did at the crucial moment, says Mike Chappell of the Star.
The Jaguars are looking for a third consecutive game with a special teams touchdown, says Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union.
Mike Thomas passed his concussion test and has been cleared to play, says Tania Ganguli of the T-U.
The Titans are doing so poorly on first down that they are in second-and-long 60 percent of the time, writes John Glennon on The Tennessean.
Though he was limited in Thursday’s practice, Chris Johnson is expected to play though a sprained ankle Saturday against Jacksonville, says Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
