Titans top Colts 31-17
(INDIANAPOLIS) – Dane Cruikshank and Tye Smith teamed up to make a game-changing play Sunday. Cruikshank raced through an inside gap to block a potential tiebreaking field goal late in the fourth quarter and Smith returned it 63 yards for the go-ahead touchdown to send the Titans past Indianapolis 31-17. By snapping a three-game losing streak against the Colts, Tennessee (7-5) moved one game in front of its AFC South rival, evened the season series and has the same number of division losses as Indy. All of those could factor into tiebreaking scenarios. Derrick Henry had 26 carries for 149 yards and scored on a 13 yard TD run on fourth down to cut the deficit to 17-14 in the third quarter. Ryan Tannehill wound up 17 of 22 with 182 yards and two TD's, sealing the victory with a 40 yard TD strike to Kalif Raymond, and improved to 5-1 since replacing Marcus Mariota as the Titans starting quarterback. Indy (6-6), meanwhile, continues to struggle. The Colts have lost four of five, falling from first in the division to third and they hit the road for three of their final four games and with their injury-depleted offense finding points increasingly scarce. Jacoby Brissett was 25 of 40 with 319 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions and he couldn't generate any points over the final 25 minutes while Adam Vinatieri missed three field goals in all.
