The Indianapolis Colts had a chance to show everyone on Sunday night that they were good. They knew how to hold a lead and they were ready to take the AFC South torch and run with it for the remainder of the season. But the way the Colts’ season has been — that didn’t happen. Indianapolis blew the lead and lost in overtime to the Houston Texans and now somehow have to comeback and win on the road against a surging Tennessee Titans team.

Sure, the Titans haven’t beaten anyone that great. But wins can do something to a team. Give them some confidence and let’s see how far this team can go. Marcus Mariota is a fun quarterback to watch and is only getting better. He’s building a better rapport with his team and having a running back tandem like DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry helps too. They could catch the Colts on a bad week and get over .500 with a win in Nashville.

Injury Report

  • NT Zach Kerr (ankle) — Out
  • WR Donte Moncrief (shoulder) — Out

The Colts haven’t won a game on the road. Andrew Luck’s primary receivers are banged up and he will be without Allen and Moncrief for this game. It’s unlikely the Colts pull this one out unless Frank Gore starts running over people like its 2005. Titans 17, Colts 7.
