The Titans are 3-0 since that embarrassing loss to the Jets, beating the Jaguars, Bills and Chiefs to improve to 5-2. Back to back statements were made, as Tennessee re-announced their intentions to battle for the AFC’s top seed.
Next up is a trip to Indianapolis for the second meeting with the Colts. After starting 0-3, the Colts have battled back to 3-4 to stay alive in the AFC South battle. Needless to say, this is a big one for them with the division leading Titans in town.
Indianapolis is coming off of an impressive road win at San Francisco on Sunday night, and now return home to catch the Titans riding high. It’s pretty clear that Vegas expects a letdown from Tennessee, as this line opened favoring the Colts by 3.5. On Monday, the line flipped and favored the Titans, but now it has settled back at Colts -1.5.
The total sits at 51 points.
The Titans are still banged up, most notably at receiver where Julio Jones and A.J. Brown are still battling back. Jones didn’t practice on Thursday, while Brown was limited. Harold Landry was added to the injury report as well, joining Bud Dupree. Left tackle Taylor Lewan has returned to practice this week.
Derrick Henry will once again carry the load on Sunday, looking to extend his rushing yards lead. He faces the Colts’ 14th-ranked run defense.
Tennessee got the better of the Colts in week four, winning a bit of an ugly game 25-16. Carson Wentz was far from healthy from that one, so the Tennessee defense might face a stiffer challenge this time around.
Do you side with Vegas here? Or can the Titans push through and grab another divisional road win?
