The Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts meet Sunday in NFL action at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Tennessee Titans look for a third straight victory to stay in the heart of the AFC playoff race. The Tennessee Titans have split their last four road games. Marcus Mariota is completing 67 percent of his passes for 1,498 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions. Mariota has one touchdown pass in two of his last five games. Corey Davis and Dion Lewis have combined for 846 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Tajae Sharpe has 17 receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 114.4 yards per contest, and Lewis leads the way with 396 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 16.8 points and 328 yards per game. Wesley Woodyard leads the Tennessee Titans with 57 tackles, Jayon Brown has 4.5 sacks and Adoree' Jackson has two interceptions.
The Indianapolis Colts look to build on their three-game winning streak to get back to a .500 record. The Indianapolis Colts have split their last four home games. Andrew Luck is completing 66.3 percent of his passes for 2,472 yards, 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions. Luck has three or more touchdown passes in each of his last six games. Eric Ebron and T.Y. Hilton have combined for 893 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns while Chester Rogers has 32 receptions. The Indianapolis Colts ground game is averaging 113.6 yards per contest, and Marlon Mack leads the way with 410 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, Indianapolis is allowing 26.6 points and 376.2 yards per game. Darius Leonard leads the Indianapolis Colts with 97 tackles, Margus Hunt has four sacks and Kenny Moore II has two interceptions.
The Titans are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 vs. AFC South, 19-42-4 ATS in their last 65 vs. AFC and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Colts are 10-2-1 ATS in their last 13 games in November, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in Week 11 and 2-7-1 ATS in their last 10 vs. AFC South. The Titans are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Indianapolis, 3-10 ATS in their last 13 meetings and the favorite is 9-2 ATS in their last 11 meetings.
The Indianapolis Colts are playing better football, but it all has to do with Luck putting the team on his back and simply outscoring the other team. While it's been just two games, the Tennessee Titans have played incredible football on both sides of the ball and are a team I'm not looking to bet against right now. Mariota has been a difference maker the last couple of weeks and the defense has rushed the passer at a very high level. On the road or not, getting the Titans and a free point seems like a steal.
