Week 14: Titans(35) @ Colts(32) Titans sweep Colts with huge playoff implications Rookie WR Purcell was Vinces favorite target, catching 6 for over 100 yards. The Titans traveled the short distance this week to Indy to play the colts in the return game with heavy playoff implications. The Titans are on a 4 game winning streak and are 7-2 in the last 9 games, and are vying for a wildcard spot that two division rivals hold. The colts, leading the wildcard race in the AFC, and are looking to keep there game lead over the titans and the texans. The first quarter was all colts with big play after big play for TDs. Colts WR Bowe hauled in one catch for 61 yards and the score and rookie RB Girley jumped over a defender and ran 68 yards for the score. CJ was unable to get any room, inside or out, as the colts defended brilliantly against the run. The titans only score of the quarter was when Young found 2nd year WR Jimmy Manning in between zones and nailed him along the sideline. After throwing Bob Sanders to the ground, he sailed in for the TD. The score at the end of the first quarter was 14-7 colts. Good defense was played by both defenses to start the quarter, but the titans bad luck would finally start to lift midway though the 2nd quarter. Third string RB Ringer was accidentally subbed in and bounced a missed tackle outside for the tieing score. The colts only points of the quarter came after the 2 minute warning. Kicker Araujo boomed one from 49 yards to put the colts up 3. The titans got the ball with 100 seconds left and drove down the field, burning all there timeouts, before getting greedy and running out of time to end the half without a FG with a score of 14-17 colts. The second half started with the titans getting the ball and driving it all the way to the colts 10 yard line before vince young would find Veteran WR Britt on the slant pattern. Vince delivered the ball on a rope, and Britt broke a tackle at the goal line to make the score 21-17 titans. Defense again would prevail as the titans were not forcing things with the lead and the colts were forcing things but didnt turn the ball over to set up another titan score. The titans ended the 3rd quarter with the ball and a 4 point lead. After a punt by the colts to start the 4th quarter, The titans got the ball in what looked to be run the clock mode. CJ had other intentions and ran 80 yards untouched for the score on a power run call on the first play of that drive. Down by 11 points, Coach Mustang and the colts looked to get alot more pass happy and risky. Less than a minute after getting the ball, the Colts answered with a TD to slot WR butler to bring the score to 28-24. Coach Ox got the ball on the next procession and took advantage of the heavy blitzs that mustang was calling to slow down the run and force the TO. Great roll out passes by Vince had the titans on the colts 10 yard line and on 3rd down, Vince ran out of options as the line parted like the red sea and he ran right up the middle to the goal line for the first down. On the next play, a sneak gave Vince the rightful TD and extended the lead again to 11. Ginn would return the ensuing kickoff 105 yards for the score but it was too late. After a failed onside attempt, with the titans gaining good yards on the ground to keep the clock running, prevented the colts from getting the ball back and vince young took the victory formation for the great rivalry win.

GL the rest of the season, Its probably going to be me and you as the wildcards in the AFC now. At least i wont get matched up with you first round this time and get destroyed like last season's playoffs.
