The Houston Texans lost in Week 1 to the Kansas City Chiefs, leading them to the bottom of the AFC South standings.

The first week of the 2020 NFL season didn’t go as well as many would have liked for the Houston Texans, but after the first week of the 2020 NFL season the standings show the Texans tied for last place in the AFC South with the Indianapolis Colts.

The Texans lost to maybe the best team in all of the NFL with their 34-20 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday night. The Colts on the other hand, they lost to one of the potentially worst teams in the league, the Jacksonville Jaguars, by a 27-20 score in one of the biggest surprises of Week 1.

The Tennessee Titans played in the final game of the first NFL weekend, and they had to battle to the very last play to defeat the Denver Broncos on the road, winning with a field goal with 17 seconds left in the game at 16-14 on Monday Night Football.

The biggest aspect of the Houston Texans loss was their inability to stop the rushing game of the Chiefs allowing rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire to rush for 138 yards and one touchdown on 25 carries.

As for the Colts losing to the Jaguars, Indianapolis is being picked as the favorites to win the division, and even with the hiccup of the Week 1 loss to the Jaguars, the Colts are a team to watch.

The rookies for the Colts stood out in the loss with Parris Campbell catching six passes for 71 yards, while Jonathan Taylor also had six receptions for 67 yards. Taylor also rushed for 22 yards on nine carries. For the Jaguars, Gardner Minchew led the Jaguars to the win with a 19-of-20 performance for 173 yards passing with three touchdowns and no interceptions. He also rushed for 19 yards on five carries.

Next week for the AFC South, the Jaguars will play at the Titans, the Colts will host the Minnesota Vikings, and the Houston Texans are hosting the Baltimore Ravens.
