Colts' playoff hopes crumble in 31-17 loss to Titans Indianapolis Star

The Tennessee Titans stole second place in the AFC South on Sunday, when they defeated the Indianapolis Colts, 31-17.

Just what you might expect of a player who was drafted out of tiny Towson University half a decade ago, who'd played in just 24 National Football League games before Sunday, who'd missed all of last season on injured reserve and who'd been waived - less than a month ago - by the Titans before getting re-signed.

Led by the opportunistic play of linebackers Darius Leonard, Anthony Walker and Okereke and the Colts held a Titans offense averaging 28 points per game with Tannehill under center to 17 points in the first three quarters.

If there's anything the Colts have been able to count on as much as beating the Titans, it's Adam Vinatieri. Two of his field goals were blocked, and Vinatieri missed his first try of the day from 55 yards.

The Titans have been rolling as of late, especially since making a change at quarterback, with four wins in their past five games. But he shook it off and finished with 149 rushing yards and a touchdown for the Titans in the team's 31-17 win over the Colts.

There was no bigger miss, which wasn't technically his fault, for Vinatieri than in the fourth quarter. Fast forward two minutes, and the Titans have a 14-point lead. Sunday marked the first time that Vinatieri had multiple kicks blocked in a game.

The special teams, especially the field goal kicking unit - has been the Colts' Achilles heel all season. Their margin of error is so slim because injuries to key players such as receiver T.Y.

Indy's defense kept things competitive for most of the game.

Imagine saying at the beginning of the season that the Titans would finally exercise their demons against the Colts, and it would be thanks to Tannehill, Raymond, Cruikshank and Smith.

Henry entered the contest with a hamstring ailment that had his status somewhat in doubt, but his 11th touchdown scamper of the season has likely quelled any concerns surrounding the matter. One of the those interceptions came deep in Colts' territory, when he tried to force a throw to tight end Jack Doyle instead of throwing the ball away.

Though he was getting hit as he threw, Brissett tossed a floater over the middle of the field that was intercepted by Titans safety Kevin Byard.
