The AFC South has plenty to prove in the quarterback department. If it wasn’t for Andrew Luck, this could be one of the worst quarterback divisions in the history of the NFL. That’s why 2014 will be interesting in a division that is the Indianapolis Colts’ to lose.
Ryan Fitzpatrick has changed locations from Tennessee to Houston. He’s expected to be the starter week one. With a new coach, new quarterbacks and No.1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney, Ryan Fitzpatrick will be looked upon to lead Houston back to the playoffs.
Chad Henne is quietly trying to turn around the Jacksonville Jaguars. The veteran QB has a real chance to hold off Blake Bortles as long as Jacksonville keeps winning. If Jacksonville gets off to a slow start, it’s likely that Chad Henne will be benched in favor of the rookie.
Jake Locker is also coming back to a potentially volatile situation. He only played in seven games last season, as injuries curtailed his third season. If Locker is able to stay on the field, Tennessee will have no problems going in another direction, but Jake should be the go to guy week one.
Andrew Luck has solidified himself as a top notch quarterback in the NFL. Hands down, he is the man in the AFC South. The battle for the other three spots could be up for grabs, but reality will set in once the real season starts.
Here are the AFC South Quarterback rankings.
