Where they stand in key categories

Here's our weekly look at where the teams of the AFC South stand in key categories. I generally consider third-down efficiency super-important. And points, of course, tend to trump all.

Obviously the numbers can and will move a lot week-to-week early in the season.

The best things here are that Houston is tied with Tampa Bay in scoring defense and that Houston and Jacksonville were excellent on third-down defense.

The worst things here are the Titans picking up where they left off and ranking 31st in rushing offense. Also not good: The Colts' scoring defense and the Titans' run defense.
