The sixth week of the 2017 NFL season is almost over as only one game is missing: Tonight's matchup between AFC South rivals Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans. Entering the contest, both teams are 2-3 and are trying to tie the 3-3 Jacksonville Jaguars and the 3-3 Houston Texans for the best record in the division.

Patriots rooting guide: Despite playing in the same conference, New England has virtually no ties to tonight's AFC South matchup. The rooting interest could therefore simply be determined by looking at the Colts and Titans from a top-to-bottom talent perspective. And while neither team appears should be considered a juggernaut, the Titans are arguably the better of the two squads. From that point of view, the Colts could be seen as a better rooting interest (and also because they have a 9 to 3 edge in former Patriots on the roster). But, “go entertaining football” is probably the best battle cry for tonight.
