Atlanta Falcons Matchups: AFC South Opponents

1 of 5

The Atlanta Falcons will go up against each team from the AFC South in 2015, which means they will face the Andrew Luck-led Colts, J.J. Watt-inspired Texans as well as the rebuilding Jaguars and Titans.

Outside of Indianapolis, the division has struggled in recent years. The Colts have been runaway winners the past two seasons, with the Texans finishing closest in 2014 with a 9-7 record.

Let’s take a look at each contest between the Falcons and the AFC South. How will Atlanta’s new-look defense cope with Luck and the Colts? How will the high-octane offense move the football against the Texans’ tough defense?

Will Blake Bortles improve in 2015 and make the Jaguars competitive? He needs to be protected for that to happen, after the offensive line allowed 71 sacks last term.

Can Marcus Mariota inspire the Titans? They have only recorded a winning season once since 2008, and hope they have finally found their quarterback to build the franchise around.

Let’s begin.
