There are some interesting early games today that will have some influence on the Colts regardless of the outcome tonight.

The Titans travel to Houston to try to steal a win on the road. Fans in Indianapolis should be rooting for a Texans win to keep both teams at 2-2.

Similarly, Jacksonville is traveling to East Rutherford, New Jersey to take on a Jets come coming off of its first win. If New York can pull off the upset, it could keep all three AFC South teams either in striking distance (if the Colts lose) or it could tie the Colts for the lead in the AFC South standings heading into a match-up next week with the 49ers.

If you’re looking more for quality football than games with division implications, the old rivalry between the Los Angeles Rams and Dallas Cowboys will resurface today with both teams starting 2-1. Detroit and Minnesota could also be a competitive game.

Finally, the game to watch at 4 PM EDT today is Denver and Oakland as both teams are 2-1, are in the same conference, and are projected playoff teams in the AFC. Which, by the way, is going to be all the more difficult with the Chiefs starting the season on fire.
