AFC Notes: Colts, Urban Meyer, Jaguars, Texans, Titans



Jaguars HC Urban Meyer spoke to the media in a press conference on Monday, saying that he believes the division is still within the team’s reach.

“The reality is the AFC South is within striking distance,” Meyer said, via John Oehser of “This team is a much different team than it was Week One. In a tough environment [in Cincinnati], to go up and play like our players played … I was very proud of them. The team’s a much better team than it was Week One. We just have to keep improving. The reality is when you turn on the videotape from Week One to Week Four it’s a markedly improved team. If we continue to make strides — which young team, new systems, you would expect that. I see it clear as day.”
