Colts & Titans Are Polar Opposites

Indianapolis and Tennessee have arrived at this destination by assembling equations that are completely different.

The Titans are doing it with offense. Tennessee is the NFL’s #7 scoring offense (29 points per game) and #6 rushing offense (147.6 yards per game). Indy is 15th in scoring offense (26 PPG) and 22nd in rushing offense (107.4 YPG).

Defensively, though, the Colts are the bomb. They are the league leaders, allowing 290 YPG. Indianapolis is the NFL’s #3 scoring defense (20 PPG), pass defense (206.4 YPG) and rush defense (83.6 YPG).

Tennessee ranks 25th in total defense (394.1 YPG). The Titans are 27th overall at stopping the pass (275 YPG).

Secure That Ball

When the Colts go south, the journey is generally accompanied by, or perhaps the better term would be fueled by, turnovers.

In four games this season, Indy has turned over the ball at least twice. The Colts are 1-3 in those games.

The Philip Rivers decision doesn’t appear to be working. He’s thrown six of his interceptions this season in those four games. Four of those interceptions led directly to opposition points. Two touchdowns in last Sunday’s 24-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens – the margin of victory on the scoreboard – came the result of Colts turnovers.

This doesn’t bode well facing Tennessee. For all their defensive woes, the Titans are among the NFL’s best ball hawks.

They’re tied for third in the NFL with 14 takeaways. Tennessee is also second in the NFL with nine picks. In Sunday’s win over the Chicago Bears, the Titans forced two turnovers, included a 63-yard fumble return TD by newcomer Desmond King.

Injury Report

The Colts may have some good news on the injury front that would boost their inconsistent offense. Wide receiver TY Hilton (groin), who missed the loss to the Ravens, has gone through two full practices this week and has been upgraded to probable for Thursday.

The Indy offense is missing running back Marlon Mack (Achilles) and receiver Parris Campbell (knee), both on IR. Tight end Jack Doyle (concussion) is listed as doubtful.

For the Titans, WR Adam Humphries (concussion) and right tackle Dennis Kelly (knee) are questionable.

Trend Spotting

The road team has won three in a row and four of the last five Colts-Titans meetings. They’ve split their last six games. Prior to that, Indy posted a 10-game win streak over Tennessee.

The Colts are 13-4 against the spread in their last 17 against the Titans. Indianapolis is 7-1 straight up in the last eight at Tennessee.

Considering Indy’s offensive struggles, combined with the tenacity of the Colts defense, a low-scoring game seems likely. In the last five Colts-Titans games, the losing team has never scored more than 17 points.

Best Bet: Under 48.5 (-110), 1 unit.
