The Packers will have an impact on this division as they will meet all four teams from the AFC South. It won’t be an easy challenge as they’ll come up against some great running backs including Derrick Henry, David Johnson, Leonard Fournette, and rookie Jonathan Williams.
The Tennessee Titans were one of the biggest surprises of the season in 2019, eliminating both the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens on the road in the playoffs, reaching as far as the AFC Championship Game. Henry was the NFL rushing champion and an All-Pro for the first time.
Despite the Titans’ success last season, I’m going with the Houston Texans to win the AFC South for the third straight year, and the fifth time in six years. They did lose DeAndre Hopkins, but Johnson can get back to his best this season, and the Texans still have a strong receiving corps with Brandin Cooks, Kenny Stills, Will Fuller, and Randall Cobb.
The Indianapolis Colts missed out on the postseason with a 7-9 record. Despite adding Philip Rivers in the offseason, I see them finishing on the same record again this year and finishing third in the division. The Jacksonville Jaguars, meanwhile, will be in contention for the first overall pick.
