The Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts meet Sunday in a AFC South NFL matchup at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Tennessee Titans look for another victory to get a game above a .500 record and remain in the AFC wild card race. The Tennessee Titans have won back-to-back games just once since the 2014 season. Marcus Mariota is completing 64 percent of his passes for 2,482 yards, 21 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Mariota has thrown at least two touchdowns in six straight games. Delanie Walker and Rishard Matthews have combined for 1,054 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns while Tajae Sharpe has 30 receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 146 yards per contest, and DeMarco Murray leads the way with 930 yards and eight touchdowns. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 25.1 points and 361.4 yards per game. Avery Williamson leads the Tennessee Titans with 71 tackles, Brian Orakpo has nine sacks and Jason McCourty has two interceptions.

The Indianapolis Colts look for back-to-back wins for the first time this season to get back to a .500 record. The Indianapolis Colts have split their last 10 home games. Andrew Luck is completing 63.7 percent of his passes for 2,565 yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Luck has two or more touchdown passes in four of his last six games. T.Y. Hilton and Jack Doyle have combined for 1,170 receiving yards and eight touchdowns while Phillip Dorsett has 20 receptions. The Indianapolis Colts ground game is averaging 98 yards per contest, and Frank Gore leads the way with 592 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Indianapolis is allowing 28.4 points and 402.8 yards per game. D'Qwell Jackson leads the Indianapolis Colts with 58 tackles, Erik Walden has seven sacks and Darius Butler has two interceptions.

The Titans are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 road games and 13-36-3 ATS in their last 52 games overall. The Colts are 27-12-1 ATS in their last 40 home games and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Titans are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Indianapolis and 1-9 ATS in their last 10 meetings overall.

The Titans are probably playing their best football of the year but at times that's not saying much. The Indianapolis Colts have been able to win games recently with improved play from Luck and company, and they've had an extra week to prepare for this game. The Titans don't have a history of winning two straight games, as they've done it just once in the last three years. I'll take the Colts and the small line at home.

Pick:
Indianapolis Colts -3
