Most have the Indianapolis Colts slated to win the AFC South in 2014, but are they giving the division away too soon? The AFC South is one of the weaker divisions in the NFL, but multiple changes in the offseason could give other teams a fighting chance. Here are five reasons why the Colts will not win the AFC South in 2014.
Bethea was a solid safety all year long, but he was let go in free agency and now plays for the San Francisco 49ers. Someone has to step up or Indianapolis could struggle against the pass.
The Houston Texans have one of the most talented defensive lines in the NFL. The Tennessee Titans were just one win from the playoffs with an injured starting quarterback. Jacksonville isn’t going to win, but they can dream, right?
With Robert Mathis suspended for the first four games, Indianapolis will be missing their best defensive lineman against the top passing offense of 2013, the top rushing offense of 2013 and a potentially healthy Jake Locker. Andrew Luck can’t do everything on his own.
Tony Romo, Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Ben Roethlisberger are just some of the top quarterbacks that the Colts will face this season. Unless their secondary shows that it can stop elite passers, it’s going to take a miracle for an AFC South title.
Look, it doesn’t matter how the members of the Colts’ offensive line have played in the past. It doesn’t matter what they were able to do last year. It doesn’t matter if they improve. All that matters is giving Andrew Luck time to pick apart the defense; okay isn’t good enough. Remember, Jadeveon Clowney said the only thing he wants to do this season is sack Luck.
