We have arrived at the halfway point of the NFL season. Here’s a brief rundown of who are contenders, outsiders and are planning for next season.
1. Indianapolis Colts
Even with a less than ideal quarterback situation last year, they were still competitive and now adding QB Philip Rivers should improve those odds.
2. Tennessee Titans
They kept QB Ryan Tannehill and RB Derrick Henry while adding Jadeveon Clowney for the defense. Not a bad offseason.
3. Houston Texans
It would seem that Bill O’Brien is safely entrenched as the Head Coach/GM in Houston barring a catastrophic collapse.
4. Jacksonville Jaguars
To think it was only 3 seasons ago that they were one game away from their first Super Bowl appearance.
Defense Is Their Calling Card
There has been an ongoing theme with the San Francisco 49ers this season and that has been their dominant defense.
