The Tennessee Titans are in business in the AFC South standings and have a commanding lead after defeating their division rival, the Indianapolis, for a second time this season in Week 8.

Tennessee put itself in a 14-0 hole early on, but the Titans were ultimately able to overcome that, penalties, and turnovers to notch a 34-31 overtime victory over the Colts.

And, with the win, the Titans now have a three-game lead over the Colts for first place, and have the head-to-head tie-breaker, which means Indy must finish one game better than Tennessee to win the AFC South.

Bottom line: it would take an epic collapse on the Titans’ part to cough this up. Here’s a look at where things stand after Week 8:

1. Tennessee Titans (6-2)

2. Indianapolis Colts (3-5)

3. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-6)

4. Houston Texans (1-7)

Not only are the Titans sitting pretty in the AFC South, they also have the top spot in the conference altogether thanks to a little help from the New York Jets, who defeated the Cincinnati Bengals, 34-31.

In Week 9, Tennessee will travel to Los Angeles to take on the 7-1 Rams on “Sunday Night Football.” The Colts will get the pesky Jets, while the Jaguars will face the Buffalo Bills and the Texans get the Miami Dolphins.
