Indianapolis Colts vs Tennessee Titans Live

It is incredible to see a young team come together so quickly after a horrible start. A successful run to the playoffs would make this Colts team the third in history to do so after starting a season 1-5. This will be the biggest stage most of the young players have ever been on in the NFL. It will be the first playoff level game that Frank Reich, Nick Sirianni, and Matt Ebeflus will coach in their respective positions.

If the Colts can do anything close to what they did in Week 11, Indianapolis should come out on top. Marcus Mariota was unable to finish that game and he is expected to miss this one.

Derrick Henry wasn’t carving up defenses earlier this season but he hasn’t faced a run defense as good as the Colts during his recent streak either. The Washington Redskins are 17th, the Jacksonville Jaguars are 18th and the New York Giants are 23rd. The Colts are 8th against the run and just held Saquon Barkley to 43 yards on 21 carries, after they held Ezekiel Elliott to 87 rushing yards in a shutout.

The Titans have the 7th ranked defense in total yards allowed, 6th in passing yards allowed and 14th in rushing yards allowed. They also won’t have their best defensive lineman, as Jurrell Casey has been placed on injured reserve. That clear advantage for the Colts is somewhat neutralized because starting center Ryan Kelly will not play for Indianapolis.

In many respects, this game should be a match-up of strength against strength. The Colts have the 7th most productive offense in the NFL but the Titans have one of the best overall defenses. The Colts run defense is strong and the Titans like to run the ball. They are division rivals who are very familiar with one another. The Colts have an offensive minded head coach in Frank Reich, while the Titans have a defensive minded head coach in Mike Vrabel.

This game has all of the elements that point to an exciting and prime time worthy match-up. Let’s take a look at the keys to a Colts victory.
