This is definitely not a two-team race. This is a very strong division that's filled with good, young talent. The Jacksonville Jaguars have the potential to make a run like the Carolina Panthers did last year with a good offense and a strong defense. Also, the Houston Texans have a talented quarterback in David Carr with another year under his belt and a good running back in Domanick Davis. Those two teams won't allow the AFC South to become a two-team division.

This could be the toughest division in the league. Jacksonville and Houston are going to be the two surprise teams in the NFL this season. The Jaguars are a strong team that fought hard last year. With another year of experience under their belt, they will be quite dangerous. The Texans are another team with good pieces in place to make a possible playoff run. Both teams will give the Colts and Titans their money's worth this season.
