AFC South Game Snapshots provides their snapshot summary of this weekend's AFC South games and predicts the score of each matchup!

Baltimore Ravens (6-2) at Tennessee Titans (2-6)

1:00 ET

2006 rankings: Ravens: offense 25th (20th rush, 22nd pass); defense 3rd (2nd rush, 13th pass). Titans: offense 28th (12th rush, 29th pass); defense 32nd (31st rush, 14th pass)

The Ravens haven't become more exotic with coach Brian Billick calling the plays the past two games. In fact, they've become more consistent on the ground with RB Jamal Lewis averaging 22.5 carries compared to 16 under deposed offensive coordinator Jim Fassel. The Titans can expect more of the same until their offense proves it can move the ball. Titans rookie QB Vince Young suffered through his worst outing last weekend, and the Ravens have the ability to bring the most complex blitz packages he has seen to date. Baltimore leads the league with 25 takeaways, and Young can't afford to contribute more to the cause with the Titans facing a very small margin for error in order just to be competitive Sunday.

Prediction: Ravens 20-13

Buffalo Bills (3-5) at Indianapolis Colts (8-0)

Kickoff: 1:00 ET

2006 rankings: Bills: offense 30th (22nd rush, 31st pass); defense 18th (19th rush, 19th pass). Colts: offense 2nd (21st rush, 1st pass); defense 20th (32nd rush, 3rd pass)

Without RB Willis McGahee and third WR Josh Reed, the Bills have to find a way to keep the game competitive. With the Colts ranked last in run defense and 31st in third-down defense, the onus falls on RB Anthony Thomas to move the chains and keep the ball out of Peyton Manning's hands as long as possible. The Bills must also get an efficient game from QB J.P. Losman, who has eight touchdown passes in his last six road games. It will be interesting to see how the offensive line that was jumbled two weeks ago holds up against a Colts defense that hasn't generated the same pass rush as recent seasons. The first quarter has been the lowest scoring one for Indianapolis, so it's critical for the Bills to keep it close and give themselves a chance going into the fourth quarter, where the Colts have scored 74 points in eight games. The Colts will be attempting to become the first team in NFL history to start consecutive seasons with a 9-0 record. 

Prediction: Colts 30-20

Houston Texans (2-6) at Jacksonville Jaguars (5-3)

Kickoff: 1:00 ET

The Texans won the first meeting, 27-7, on Oct. 22, but that was in Houston and against Jaguars QB Byron Leftwich. The rematch is on the road, where Houston has lost a team-record 12 consecutive games, and the more mobile David Garrard has taken over for Leftwich. Still, the Jaguars' receivers are inconsistent and this remains a run-first offense. The Texans' first priority is to keep the game close with the Jaguars having won their past two home games by a combined score of 78-7. To do that, Houston must get a strong effort from rookie RB Wali Lundy and cannot afford to lose the turnover battle. QB David Carr did a good job of using his feet when pressured last weekend, but the Texans are still lacking an attack that can keep the team in high-scoring games.

Prediction: Jaguars 30-21
