Overshadowed by the departure of the greatest quarterback of all time, the next domino to fall in the NFL free agency period comes by way of Philip Rivers.
Rivers and the Indianapolis Colts have agreed to a reported 1-year deal, which — two days removed from Ryan Tannehill’s agreement with the Titans — gives the three frontrunners in the AFC South a face at quarterback (as the Jaguars sort out their Nick Foles-Gardner Minshew situation).
That also means oddsmakers are able to forecast a more accurate division outlook for the upcoming season — one that now looks a bit brighter for Indy.

Updated Colts Super Bowl, Conference, Division Odds, Win Total
Bringing in Rivers hasn’t made a huge splash for the Colts in the market, but it has been unanimously positive.
They’ve gone from +3300 odds to win the Super Bowl to +3000, and have seen a similar shift of +1500 to +1400 to win the AFC. But the more significant move has come through the division.
The AFC South has not been given an odds-on favorite through the entirety of the offseason, with the Titans, Texans and Colts all inside of 3-1 for the most part. But prior to the Indy’s addition of Rivers, the Titans (+170) were decided favorites over both the Texans and Colts (+210 apiece).
With the 38-year-old under center, however, the Colts have been pushed right to the heels of the Titans, and are now listed at +180.
At PointsBet, the Colts’ win total also has also seen a slight increase, going from 8 up to 8.5.
