The Colts continue their three game home stand as the Titans come to town for a divisional clash. Here is what you need to know about the game right now.
Both the Colts and the Titans are chasing Houston in the division standings. But both know that a win on Sunday would go a long way to helping their cause. That is what makes this game on Sunday so important.
Not only are their divisional implications, but the wild card could be in effect as well. The Titans are in the hunt for that too. The Colts would love nothing more than to extend their winning streak to four against this divisional opponent. It would be a big win for them.
The Titans come in very confident after they waxed the Patriots last week. Having beaten a team like that as badly as they did, they will expect to come into Indy and win. But they are playing a hot team. The Colts are also full of confidence and should be ready.
The key to the game will be the Titans offense. They have struggled most of the year behind Marcus Mariota. But last week they played very well. If Mariota returns to how he was playing for most of the season, this could be a long day for Tennessee.
To that effect, the same can be said for the Colts defense. If they don’t get any pass rush, they could be in for a long day. Their pass rush has been an area of concern the last couple of games. It needs to drastically improve if they want to win this week.
It should be a great battle between two divisional rivals. It should be a well played game by both sides, and the coaching will be great in it as well.
