While the Titans lead the division based on a loss to them by the Jags, both teams are 3-1 and if Jacksonville can pull of a win vs KC, that will give the rest of the AFC pause. The AFCS Week 5 Injury Report – Wednesday doesn’t look good for a few teams.
Thursday Colts (1-3) vs Patriots* (2-2) 8:20 FOX
Not sure how the Colts can play competitively with this injury report. Who knows, they may just figure this is a loss and save their guys for more games down the road. Sit them now and be healthy for the games vs the AFCS.
While the Patriots* are somewhat beat up, too one is listed out and the game is in Foxboro. David vs Goliath for sure.
Sunday Titans (3-1) vs Bills (1-3) 1:00 CBS
Titans look good, since they’re playing the Bills and a rookie QB, Woodyard and Vaccaro a little banged up most likely won’t make a difference.
Buffalo has an issue on defense and while Mariota isn’t 100%, he has enough to tear up a weakened secondary.
Sunday 1:00 Jaguars (3-1) vs Chiefs (4-0) CBS
This is the game of the week. Not a great time for Jax to have three OL and two running backs on this list. Week 3 Bortles was without 3 of his starting OL and we saw what happened. Last week, he got them back (not counting Cam) and he lit up the place against a tough Jets defense. Hayden being out is a concern, too but Patmon did alright.
The Chiefs look disgustingly healthy, being that way after playing a tough Denver defense is remarkable. Going to be a tough game.
Sunday 8:20 NBC Cowboys (2-2) vs Texans (1-3)
The ratings should be high for this game, high for yawns. Sean Lee is a concern as is maybe Lawrence who terrorized Stafford last week.
Not sure who’s in worse shape, Houston or Indy. The Cowboys aren’t much, but against the Texan’s injury report, they could win this road game.
