NFL Thursday Night- Week 14: Colts @ Titans

Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans Thurs. Dec. 9th 2010 8:20pm EST

As Super Bowl favorites coming into this one of the regular season, four-time NFL MVP quarterback Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts couldn’t wait to get this year started as they were still feeling the sting of getting beaten by the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints last February.

Unfortunately, the season got off to a rough start as the Indianapolis Colts loss to their division rivals Houston Texans in week one and whether or not this team was a legitimate Super Bowl title contender was questionable at best.

Every single season the Houston Texans seem to give Peyton Manning and company a run for their money as they matchup with the Indianapolis Colts as good as any team in the league, but it was quite a surprise to see the team that almost went undefeated last season get beaten in the first game of the year.

Even though the loss to the Houston Texans was hard to swallow for Jim Caldwell and his squad, the Indianapolis Colts were able to bounce back with a convincing 38-14 win over arguably one of the best teams in the NFL and the New York Giants.

Despite the win over the Giants being seemingly just what the Colts needed to get back on track, Indianapolis suffered injury after injury and have failed to play consistently well throughout the entire season.

In Week 13, the Indianapolis Colts played host to one of the most disappointing teams in the league and the Dallas Cowboys, but in the Jason Garrett era, America’s Team has come to life and become a force to be reckoned with once again this season.

Needless to say, despite being the underdogs as they have been over most of the season, the Dallas Cowboys were able to give the Indianapolis Colts a run for their money from start to finish and eventually took this game into overtime where they came out with a 38-35 victory.

This loss to the Cowboys was just another indication of how banged up this Colts team really is right now and how desperate they are for a win as they are sitting in second place in the AFC South division with a disappointing 6-6 record.

Coming into Thursday night’s matchup against division rival Tennessee Titans, the Indianapolis Colts will have a perfect opportunity get back on track as they will be facing a team that is has fallen to pieces over the last few weeks of the season and have lost five straight coming into this matchup.

Not only is the Titans offense one of the worst in the league right now as they are 31st in passing yards, but their defense is a much better as they can’t seem to stop anybody from lighting up the scoreboard.

With Peyton Manning coming to town and the Indianapolis Colts in desperate need of a win to get back in contention for the AFC South division title, the Tennessee Titans will be in serious trouble on Thursday night as they will almost certainly get blown out by convincing margin.
