How the AFC South can be won

Here’s what you need to know about the AFC South title, which will be decided next Sunday.

The Indianapolis Colts are 9-6 and the Jacksonville Jaguars are 8-7.

  • If the Colts win against the Tennessee Titans at Lucas Oil Stadium, they win the division as they’ll win 10 games and the Jaguars can only win nine.

  • If the Jaguars lose at Houston, the Colts win the division because they’ll already have nine wins and the Jaguars will only have won eight.

  • If the Colts lose to the Titans and the Jaguars win at Houston, they’d both be 9-7 and the Jaguars would win the division because they’d have a better division record, 4-2 versus 3-3.

Both games are scheduled for 1 p.m. ET starts. But it's possible the Colts-Titans game could get flexed into the night slot.
