Colts at Titans: Best and Worst Moments


The Indianapolis Colts swept the AFC South for the second consecutive season by beating the Tennessee Titans today. It was a meaningless game for the Colts, as they already had their playoff seeding locked up, but there were still many good highlights during this game rather than bad moments.

To me, the best moment of the game came on an 80 yard catch by Reggie Wayne which was his longest reception of his amazing career. Wayne made a nice adjustment on the play and it was a difficult catch, which is great to see with how much Wayne has struggled recently.

Andrew Luck also broke Peyton Manning’s record for most passing yards in a single season in Colts franchise history. Luck finished the season with 4,671 passing yards.

On the next play, Luck threw a touchdown pass to TE Jack Doyle giving him 40 touchdown passes for the season. Luck became only the eighth quarterback in NFL history to throw for 40 touchdown passes or more. Only Dan Marino has thrown for more touchdowns in his first three seasons in the NFL.

The worst moment of the game, in my opinion, came when Adam Vinatieri missed a 46-yard field goal attempt, his first miss of the season. Vinatieri was looking to become the fifth kicker ever to complete a perfect season, only the third with a minimum of 20 attempts. He was 28-28 coming into the game and made a 23-yard field goal earlier in the game before his first miss.

Vinatieri had a streak of 35 field goals in a row dating back to last season.

The Colts were playing a game that didn’t mean much to them against a team that more than likely didn’t want to win for draft pick purposes so there’s not a lot to take from this game. The Colts will play the Cincinnati Bengals in Indianapolis next weekend in their first round playoff matchup.
