    It's way too early but lets play process of elimination , excluding the South for now.

    No Chance @ Playoffs :
    1 Jets
    2 Browns
    3 Bengals
    4 Chargers

    The last 2 obviously still have an outside chance while those first 2 are in full blown rebuild mode.

    Moving on to the South ...

    5 Colts (if Luck doesn't make it back before week-6 you can almost count them out)
    6 Jaguars (Bortles is not a playoff QB)

    Surprisingly out of those 2 teams I give the Jags a better hope to win the South.

    Going back outside the division

    7 Bills (simply because they haven't gone since 99 so prove it first - disfunctional on top of that)

    So by my count that's roughly 7 teams that have an outside shot at making the playoffs.

    The Contenders :

    1 Patriots
    2 Raiders

    Both are heavy favorites for the AFC Title Game

    3 Denver
    4 Kansas City
    5 Pittsburgh

    All 3 teams have looked solid and arnt going anywhere anytime soon

    6 Baltimore
    7 Tennessee
    8 Miami
    9 Houston

    These 4 are most likely clumped on the outside looking in but the Titans have the advantage out of these 3 simply because they don't have the Steelers or Patriots to leap frog - Houstons defense alone will keep them deep into the race as usual.

    If you go by this model, it's win the division or bust.

    The wild card teams look to be the AFC West - no one would be surprised if 3 teams come out of that division.

    Anyone else have something completely different?

    Houston defense isn't as good as you think it is. They are staring 1- 7 to start the season square in the face. They have no WRs and their secondary and LB corps stink. Watt isn't even close to what he was. He has one move and gets thrown around quite a bit now. The Texans had their run. They didn't take advantage of the bad South and now they are about to have to do a complete rebuild. THe Texans will fight the Colts for the basement. Both bad managed teams.

    Not a chance. You obviously don't follow the team very closely.

    Yeah I'm with that - regardless of winning the division because - duh we have to win it - let's see them beat the Colts for a change ... no Luck no more excuses ! They can't be that much in the Titans head!!
