Colts vs Titans: Week 17 Where to Watch
The Indianapolis Colts host the Tennessee Titans with a small chance to make the playoffs.
The Colts just need to beat the Titans…and hope eight other very specific teams win as well on Sunday to make the playoffs. For those who are interested here’s who has to win Sunday:
Jaguars over Texans
Bills over Jets
Dolphins over Patriots
Falcons over Saints
Ravens over Bengals
Broncos over Chargers
Raiders over Chiefs
Steelers over Cleveland
There are more than a few long shots in this mix. And while the team has had to prep for a game, there have been more than a few distractions this week.
Most of this week has featured information flooding out of the Colts Complex like a burst dam. Head coach Chuck Pagano isn’t going to be with the team much longer, and while that isn’t much of a surprise the fact that GM Ryan Grigson could stay really is.
Considering everything we’ve learned about Grigson and his relationship with Pagano (which dates back further than last spring when some of these leaks started), and how Grigson has a history of meddling with things normally left to a head coach, it really is a shock that Jim Irsay is even considering keeping him around.
The Colts also have some question marks on the field, specifically at quarterback. It looks like they will start Josh Freeman, who hasn’t played since 2013 and we’re not entirely sure what to expect.
We also took time away from speculating on the Grigson-Pagano dynamic to look at the matchup this Sunday. Check out our preview of the Futility Bowl featuring the Titans at Colts.
