How the Texans Clinch the South by Drew Dougherty, Houstontexans.com
"The Texans can sew up their fourth AFC South title in the last six years this Saturday.But they’ll need a little help.If the Jaguars beat the Titans next Saturday afternoon, and Houston takes care of the Bengals later that evening, the Texans will be the division champs."
Needing help from the Jaguars? Good luck with that. The thing that you can say about them is that they have not mailed it in. They came to Houston ready to play and they will likely do the same in front of their home crowd for Doug Marrone this Saturday. However, the Titans are on such a roll right now that I don’t think the Jags will be able to slow that running game.

Texans, Vikings and Jets Show Why You Don’t Throw Money at QBs by Jason La Canfora, CBS Sports
"For a division-leading team to have to deal with this drama at this stage of the season isn’t ideal … but in this case it was the only move. In fact, I’m fairly convinced if Savage hadn’t been out with a elbow issue the past few weeks, O’Brien may have made this move sooner. Don’t forget, he yanked Brian Hoyer in the third quarter of Week 1 a year ago."
There have been plenty of people who clamored for Savage in previous weeks. Could Savage have actually come in sooner? Part of me doesn’t think so. Osweiler looked decent during the games against the Raiders and Packers so I think that bought him a little more time. The fact the Texans pulled out the win in Indianapolis no doubt bought him another week. But alas, his time is up.
