Titans Prove to Be a Persistent Bunch
You can’t keep good men down. Mike Vrabel has the Tennessee Titans marching on despite getting beaten up and battered through the season. Tennessee is enduring what has been an injury-filled year with as many as nine starters listed on the injury list or still recovering from an injury. The most notable is Derrick Henry.
The once-unstoppable running back, who has been the team’s catalyst on offense, has not been the same. He is rushing for a career-low 3.6 yards-per-attempt. The offensive line is also a shell of itself with Taylor Lewan out. Ryan Tannehill is still readjusting to his new receivers – none have caught a touchdown yet.
The issues don’t stop on offense as the defense could be without Bud Dupree (hip), while Harold Landry III is out for the year with an ACL injury. As such, the Titans have given up over 390 yards per game. But knowing this team, it will find a way to do enough on both ends to make them worth betting online.
Riding This Rollercoaster of a Colts Season
Colts fans, the ride has not come to an end. Buckle up as you may be in for another “exciting” game. Indianapolis has alternated performances that have everyone scratching their heads. The team opened the season by dumping 517 yards on Houston only to walk away with a tie.
This offense, led by Matt Ryan on his last legs, is struggling to score. Indianapolis has scored the fewest points in the NFL, thanks to getting blanked by the Jaguars. But its defense, which has stayed solid, has carried the team. It pushed Indianapolis over Kansas City.

The Colts’ front seven is doing an admirable job in stuffing their opponents’ running game as it leads the league in yards-per-attempt (2.6) and is third in rushing yards allowed (231). And on their end, Jonathan Taylor remains a potent force with his legs. The Indianapolis Colts will be back in business if Ryan and the passing game can get things going.

Titans vs Colts Prediction
It’s hard to get a read on this game. The one thing we’re sure of is that both teams are struggling on the offensive end. But Indianapolis has more things going for them: the running game, a healthier team, and home advantage.
Fair play, the Titans have been comfortable inside the Lucas Oil Stadium. But Indianapolis is 10-4 as a favorite here since 2020. This game will get rocky at points, but we trust the Colts to be able to handle whatever the Titans throw at them.
