The bye week is always tough. There are plenty of NFL games, good NFL games, to watch, but it just isn't the same. It is a little better though with the Titans sitting at 5-0 for the bye week. The Titans were off today, but there was a lot going on in the division.
The Indianapolis Colts proved today that they are not done with a 31-3 beatdown of the Baltimore Ravens. Most of us here were heaping all kinds of praise on the Ravens' defense after the way they played against the Titans last week, but Peyton Manning shredded them today for 271 yards and 3 touchdowns.
The Houston Texans got their first win of the season over what is proving to be a tough Miami Dolphins team 29-28. The Texans have played better than their record, and while I don't believe they are a playoff team, I think they are going to be close at the end of the season.
The Jacksonville Jaguars traveled to Denver and knocked them off 24-17. Don't look now, but the Jags have won 3 of their last 4 and are back to .500. A lot of people have written them off a couple of different times already this season, but they are a good team that will probably end up winning 9 or 10 games.
Boo all of the teams in the division winning, but they are all still looking up at our 5-0 Titans. The Titans did gain some "strength of schedule" points today with all of their prior opponents winning except for the Ravens Ravens and the Bengals.
Enjoy the rest of the bye week. I will be keeping an eye on the Sunday night game, but I really hate both teams so I hope it ends in a 0-0 tie.
