Although it’s a young division, the AFC South has produced some of the best players in the game.
However, there can be only one G.O.A.T for each team.
Here is every AFC South team’s best player in franchise history.

Indianapolis Colts: Peyton Manning
We’ll start with an easy one.
It’s Peyton Manning. The Sheriff. Was there a doubt?
I honestly don’t need to say anything else. You guys are smart, you don’t need me to explain this one.
Houston Texans: Andre Johnson
Although they’re still a young franchise, the Texans have a couple of options for their G.O.A.T award.
But Andre Johnson was the clear choice here.
In his 12 seasons with the Texans, Johnson set franchise records in almost every receiving category.
Career receptions: (1,012)
Receiving yards: (13,597)
Receiving TDs: (64)
100-yard games: (51)
Along with individual records including:
Most receptions: (14)
Receiving yards: (273)
Receiving TDs: (3)
In 2017, they included him as the inaugural member of the Texans’ Ring of Honor.
Jacksonville Jaguars: Tony Boselli
Like Houston, Jackson is still a young franchise compared to the rest of the league. But they got a future Hall of Famer early on.
Boselli was regarded as one of the best guards during his NFL career. Racking up tons of awards along the way including:
5 straight Pro-Bowls (1997-2001)
3-time First-team All-Pro (1997-1999)
In 2006, he was the first player included in the Jaguars Hall of Fame, and in 2022 he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, becoming the first Jag to be honored in Canton.
Tennessee Titans: Steve McNair
Drafted out of Alcorn State in 1995 by the Houston Oilers, McNair soon became the face of the newly transitioned Tennessee Titans.
While leading the Titans through their most successful five-year stretch, the former first-round draft pick earned the most wins of any Titans/Oilers quarterback and four Pro Bowl selections throughout his career. Along with that, he is the only quarterback in franchise history to lead the Titans to a Super Bowl.
McNair racked up 27,141 passing yards with the Titans (2nd in franchise history) and is the team’s leader in completion percentage with 59.5%. Along with a passer rating of 83.3 that ranks him first in the franchises history.
In 2008, he was inducted into both the Titans and Oilers Hall of fame and Ring of Honor.
