@bobbythegreat they improved their team last year in the draft I kind of figured they would improve but not that much. The Texans are still the team to beat in this division.

Why Your Team Sucks 2013: Indianapolis Colts Some people are fans of the Indianapolis Colts, but many, many more people are NOT fans of the Indianapolis Colts. This 2013 Deadspin NFL team preview is for and by one of those in the latter group
Las Vegas Odds are that the Indianapolis Colts Will Regress in 2013. The link says it all, as in this article there is a thoroughgoing discussion of why the Colts will not do as well this season as they did last. Loss of free agents and a poor rookie class would be two reasons.
LB Geno Hayes approaching first season with Jaguars as a “reinvention” of sorts. Had he played for Gus Bradley as a head coach before this season, maybe he wouldn’t have been ready to hear what he’s hearing. This idea of competing against yourself, of measuring you against “you?” That’s the core of what Bradley preaches as the Jaguars’ head coach.
This whole “transition-to-the-NFL” thing is going as expected for Luke Joeckel. All signs point to the No. 2 overall selection in the 2013 NFL Draft being very good at RT very quickly.
Some may argue said that the duo of Johnathan Joseph and Kareem Jackson as starting cornerbacks in Houston are the absolute elite of the NFL. Since Joseph has been in Houston, the Texans have earned back-to-back AFC South Division titles and their first two playoff appearances in franchise history.
The 2012 NFL touchdown king, RB Arian Foster suffered a calf injury during OTA’s, and has been rehabbing. Texans head coach Gary Kubiak met with the media after Thursday afternoon’s practice inside the Houston Methodist Training Center, and was optimistic about a return for the Pro Bowl running back.
Defensive line coach Tracy Rocker explains his philosophy about DT’s which is: “Somebody’s got to do the dirty work, and that’s what they’re there to do. It may not get the attention of what others might get, but everybody can’t do that job.”
Fullback Mooney took a fairly unique path to reach professional football. The non-traditional route, however, better equipped him to compete for a spot on the Titans’ practice squad last season. Mooney is a Texas native with the discipline to win.
