At 5-5, the Tennessee Titans find themselves in second place in the AFC South. The club is nipping on the heels of the division-leading Houston Texans.

Four weeks ago, Chuck Pagano’s team extended Tennessee’s misery in this series and rallied in the closing minutes for a 34-26 victory at Nashville. Colts quarterback Andrew Luck completed 27-of-39 passes for 353 yards and three touchdowns as the Indianapolis offense rolled up 422 yards on Dick LeBeau’s defense.
The fifth-year quarterback did a terrific job spreading the football around. His scoring connections went to running back Frank Gore, wide receiver T.Y. Hilton and tight end Jack Doyle.

The Titans got 107 rushing yards and a touchdown from running back DeMarco Murray. Marcus Mariota added 232 yards through the air and a pair of scores. But it wasn’t enough to prevent yet another loss in this AFC South series.
A win by the Titans would not only keep them in the playoff race but it could mark a turning point for the club, especially if they can finally rid themselves of the albatross in Indianapolis. But that’s been easier said than done and it will take a big effort to notch a road win here.
