The AFC South may have one of the most intriguing division races in the NFL this year.

In fact, the veteran Texans and rising Colts will likely draw attention all year-long.

The Texans have made it to the divisional round of the playoffs in two straight seasons, defeating the Bengals in the Wild Card round both times to get that far. However, losses to the Ravens and a bit of a beating at the hands of New England last year have some fans doubting their ability to be one of the AFC’s true Super Bowl contenders.

I’m not saying I’m one of them though. The Texans have a great defense, and a running game that could be considered the best in not only the division, but the entire conference.

They’re just missing that one extra playoff win. Maybe this year will see that problem resolved?
