What we learned from Titans Week 13 win over Colts

What we learned from Titans Week 13 win over Colts

The Houston Texans, at 8-4 after a big win over the New England Patriots last night on Sunday Night Football, are in control in the division, while the Titans, with their win over the Colts, are still on the outside looking in as the current No. 7 seed.

Again, the Colts need to be able to count on their kicker to make at least one of his two field goals from 50 yards away, but they certainly did him no favors by making the task so hard.

The score was 17-17 with just over five minutes left in the game.

It looked like the Colts might regain the lead in the fourth quarter, but Dane Cruikshank blocked Adam Vinatieri's field goal attempt.

China factory activity expands in seventh month after 6-month losing streak
An additional 15% in United States tariffs are scheduled to take effect on about $156 billion of Chinese products on December 15. The official August composite PMI, which covers both manufacturing and services activity, dropped to 53.0 from July's 53.1.


The special teams, especially the field goal kicking unit - has been the Colts' Achilles heel all season. Sunday marked the first time that Vinatieri had multiple kicks blocked in a game. He did throw for 319 yards and a touchdown, but threw two bad picks over the middle of the field that resulted in 10 Tennessee points. Indianapolis clearly missed T.Y. Hilton, who sat out with a calf injury. Only two of the Colts' 12 games have been decided by more than seven points.

The Titans will travel to Indianapolis for the second time this season and face the colts in an AFC South matchup. The Colts finished with six sacks. That wasn't the case because the offense messed up a solid defensive effort. He now has 1,140 yards and 11 rushing touchdowns on the season. Brissett's throw sailed high and was picked by Titans safety Kevin Byard. Brissett fired deep down the middle of the field where Ryan was waiting to put the game on ice for the Titans.

Tannehill was 17-of-22 passing for 182 yards and two touchdowns - without an interception.
