The Tennessee Titans travel to Indianapolis where they will hope to keep the momentum rolling against the Colts. The Titans just dispatched the Patriots by a score of 34-10 and are feeling good. Mike Vrabel handed Bill Belichick his second loss to a former member of coaching his staff. The other one came against Matt Patricia and the Lions on Monday Night Football earlier in the season. And just like that game, the Patriots had no effort on the field against the Titans.
It looked like they were brought their D game instead of their A. However, no one would say that the Lions are a good team, so the win for the Titans may be a blindfold over bias Titans’ fans. The Titans moved to 5-4 and the Patriots are 7-3, so settle down over there Dion Lewis. What the Titans should be focusing on is using this game as a springboard to a playoff run. Forget about the Pats, it’s time to focus on the Colts.
With the win, the Titans have won two games straight. Their other win a 28-14 win over the Cowboys, so they do have some momentum. The Titans are on the fringe of being a playoff team and are trying to do some catching up after losing three games in a row.
They can erase that losing streak with their third win over the Titans. Tennessee will have to do it on the road in Indianapolis against the Colts. Andrew Luck has been streaking, and looks to be over the last few weeks and over the shoulder injury. The Colts are winners of three straight games after downing the Bills, Raiders, and Jaguars. They defeated the Jaguars, 29-26, last week and will be back in their own barn again for Week 11. Head below for our free Titans vs. Colts pick.

Titans vs. Colts Pick:
Andrew Luck tossed 3 touchdowns against the Jaguars to add to his total of 26 touchdown passes. Luck has been locked in a rhythm, with 14 touchdowns and 1 interception in his previous three games. His QB rating is just shy of 100 with a chance to hop above it against the Titans. The Colts made it a point to improve their offensive line while Luck was on the mend with his shoulder.
They’re 9th in the NFL with 379.8 yards per game and 6th with 29 points per game. At home that number goes up to 30.75 points per game. Along with improving their offensive line, the defense has taken big steps forward. Are they great? Certainly not great, but they’ve shown some progress. Indianapolis are 23rd in the NFL with an average of 376.2 yards allowed per game.
The Titans have excelled under Vrabel defensively. The former standout linebacker has turned the Titans into a strong defensive team. They are 6th in the NFL with 328 yards allowed per game. After holding the Patriots to only 10 points last week, they should be taken seriously by the rest of the league. With the Titans, it always goes back to Mariota, though. He was sharp with 2 touchdown passes and no mistakes against the Pats, but Mariota is too hit and miss for my liking.
Mariota has thrown 7 touchdowns and 5 interceptions this season. He has regressed since a stellar 2016-17 season which saw him pass for 26 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. The following season, Mariota hit for 13 touchdowns and 15 interceptions. He’s been a bit better, but not worth the money he is reportedly demanding. After such a big win and heading on the road to Indianapolis, I don’t know if I can trust Mariota and the Tennessee offense. Dion Lewis was still talking about the Patriots a couple of days ago. Look for the Colts to jump on the radar with their fourth win a row on Sunday.
