Tennessee Titans win on the road in overtime thriller against Colts, 34-31.
The Titans are the hottest team in the AFC and have won their last three consecutive games. With wins against the Bills and the Chiefs in back-to-back games, the Titans prove to be legit Super Bowl contenders. The resiliency from the Titans was the story of the game as Tennessee overcame two interceptions by quarterback Ryan Tannehill and two early touchdowns from Colts wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr.
After trailing 14-0 early in the first quarter, the Titans quickly turned things around in the second quarter. After two touchdown passes from Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill to wide receiver AJ Brown and tight end Geoff Swaim, the Titans tied the score and never looked back. Not all their wins have been easy, but the Titans continue to find ways to win and now have sole possession of the AFC South crown.
The highlight of the Titans offense came from A.J. Brown and Ryan Tannehill. A.J. Brown finished with ten catches for 155 receiving yards, one touchdown, and 15.5 average yards per catch. Ryan Tannehill passed for 265 yards, three touchdowns, and completed 70% of his passes. Cornerbacks Kevin Byard and Elijah Molden each recorded an interception on the afternoon, with Molden securing a pick-six to put the Titans ahead late in the fourth quarter.
Colts quarterback Carson Wentz threw for 231 yards and three touchdowns but threw two crucial interceptions, with one resulting in a score for the Titan's defense. Wide receiver Michael Pittman Jr. caught ten passes for 86 yards and scored two touchdowns in the first quarter. Cornerback Kenny Moore II and defensive lineman Tyquan Lewis each intercepted Ryan Tannehill.
Titans running back Derrick Henry injured his foot in Sunday's victory against the Colts and is expected to undergo season-ending foot surgery. There is currently no official timeline for when Henry will be back in the lineup for Tennessee. Next week, The Titans will head to Los Angeles to face off against the 7-1 Los Angeles Rams, who are also on a four-game winning streak.
