A new hope: After clearing Colts' hurdle, maybe the Titans can really do something big

INDIANAPOLIS – All that hope the Titans sold in the spring and the summer became real here at Lucas Oil Stadium Sunday on the shoulders of a 31-17 win against a nuisance of a team that’s always in the way.

Tennessee avenged an early-season embarrassment to the Colts in Nashville when the Titans botched an end-of-game opportunity. Eleven weeks later the Titans have edged ahead of Indianapolis in the AFC South, 7-5 to 6-6.


With a pair of head-to-head games still to come against Houston, the Titans have control of their fate with a quarter of the season in front of them.

The fight back from 2-4 to 7-5 has been equal parts exhausting and exhilarating for a team that has an odd formula it put on display again as it struggled through the first half with lost fumbles from both Derrick Henry and Ryan Tannehill and was lucky to trail by just 10-7.
