The Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts meet Sunday in NFL action at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Tennessee Titans look for their seventh victory of the season to keep pace in the AFC South. The Tennessee Titans have lost three of their last four road games. Marcus Mariota is completing 62.6 percent of his passes for 2,089 yards, eight touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Mariota has four touchdown passes and six interceptions in his last three games. Rishard Matthews and Delanie Walker have combined for 1,176 receiving yards and three touchdowns Eric Decker has 31 receptions. The Tennessee Titans ground game is averaging 117.5 yards per contest, and DeMarco Murray leads the way with 443 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Tennessee is allowing 25.3 points and 330.4 yards per game. Wesley Woodyard leads the Tennessee Titans with 82 tackles, Derrick Morgan has six sacks and Kevin Byard has six interceptions.
The Indianapolis Colts need a feel good victory here after losing five of their last seven games. The Indianapolis Colts have split their last four home games. Jacoby Brissett is completing 60.9 percent of his passes for 2,172 yards, nine touchdowns and five interceptions. Brissett has six touchdown passes and two interceptions in his last three games. T.Y. Hilton and Jack Doyle have combined for 1,175 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Donte Moncrief has 20 receptions. The Indianapolis Colts ground game is averaging 95.9 yards per contest, and Frank Gore leads the way with 509 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Indianapolis is allowing 28 points and 385.8 yards per game. Jonathan Bostic leads the Indianapolis Colts with 72 tackles, Jabaal Sheard has 4.5 sacks and Malik Hooker has three interceptions.
The Titans are 7-21 ATS in their last 28 road games, 14-36-3 ATS in their last 53 vs. AFC South and 17-42-4 ATS in their last 63 games overall. The Colts are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a bye week and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. AFC South. The Titans are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 meetings in Indianapolis, 2-10 ATS in their last 12 meetings and the favorite is 8-2 ATS in their last 10 meetings.
I'm not sure how you can watch the Tennessee Titans play last Thursday against the Pittsburgh Steelers and lay points on the road here. Mariota has been in full struggle mode since returning from the injury and the Titans just aren't playing consistent ball overall. In the Titans last four road games, they were blown out by the Steelers, needed overtime to beat the Browns, lost to the Texans and los to the Dolphins. The Colts aren't winning games, but their last two losses have been decided by a combined four points and three of their last six losses overall have been decided by three or less points. As long as Brissett is cleared to play due to a concussion, I'll take the Colts and the points at home, as this is a game they can win outright. I'm just not going to lay chalk with the Titans and assume they can flip this switch.
