AFC South: Houston (7-1)

Pleasant: With how strongly he finished last season, we knew defensive end J.J. Watt would be good in 2012. But not this good. Watt is a frontrunner for both NFL Defensive Player of the Year and even Most Valuable Player honors with 10.5 sacks and 10 tipped passes, four of which have gotten intercepted for the AFC East-leading Texans.

Unpleasant: The Texans gave up too soon on kickoff returner Trindon Holliday when his preseason success didn’t translate quickly enough to the regular season. Now with Denver, Holliday’s world-class speed was on display last Sunday during a franchise-record 105-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against Cincinnati. As for the Texans, they rank 32nd in kickoff return average at 17.8 yards. - Alex Marvez (AP Photo/Dave Einsel)
