While the Bengals work on run defense, the Ravens work on figuring out who's supposed to get the handoff. Plus, which depth chart is harder to figure out, the Pittsburgh running backs or the Cleveland receivers? It's one more trip around the AFC North with Ryan Wilson.

The Texans turn to a New Orleans castoff to solve their offensive line problems. The Colts are relying on Wolverines. The Jaguars' offense may be even worse than anyone thought. As for the Titans, Steve McNair may be back and Pacman is an interesting character. Here's the final edition of Four Downs for the AFC South.

The Texans' playoff drive may depend on Derick Armstrong. The Colts made headlines but no roster moves. The Jaguars have a huge hole at running back, but they were wise to not fill it with the Titans' solution, Travis Henry. Plus a look at a strategy working around the nation to extract money from cash-strapped cities.

What other Buffalo running back left town after a season remarkably similar to Travis Henry's 2004? What are the biggest offensive DVOA turnarounds of the past few years, and could Miami possibly match them? Who will fill the holes in the Jets secondary? Aaron attempts to answer these questions in the latest edition of Four Downs.
