The Tennessee Titans travel to Lucas Oil Field in Indianapolis this Sunday to try the Colts. Both AFC South teams have shown promise, but neither has got it all figured out yet. Both teams are at 1-2 right now, and one will be at .500 after this match up, and the other will still be left scratching their head again. The game kicks off on CBS at 1:00 PM EST, or you can watch it online via one of the live stream links provided below (free for subscribers).
Last week, Indianapolis Colts' quarterback Andrew Luck had his best outing of the season. He was 31-39 for 370 yards and 4 touchdowns. He spread the ball around the offense, too, with Ahmad Bradshaw, Hakeem Nicks, Coby Allen, and Dwayne Allen all bringing in touchdowns. The Colt ended up throttling the Jacksonville Jaguars 44-17, and if Luck has another game like he did last week, they could hit 40 points again. Luck leads the lead with 9 touchdown passes so far.
On Defense, the biggest challenge this week will be stopping the run. Jake Locker has been decent, but the real threat from the Tennessee offense comes from the running game. If the Colts defensive front can control the Tennessee offensive line, then the Colts have a great shot at winning. Opposing teams have had success using the backs in passing plays against the Colts, so look for the titans to try and use running back Dexter McCluster in that way. If the Colt's D can shut down McCluster, then they may have this one in the bag.
The Titans will definitely try and run McCluster and Shonn Greene at the Colts this weekend, and they are hoping for a turnover free day from Locker, if he is able to play. He has not practiced yet this week, but if he can go, and If he can spread the ball around a bit, and get Greene and McCluster involved, the Titans could have a great day on Sunday. Charlie Whitehurst will get the start if Locker can't go.
On Defense, the Titans will need to blitz and pressure Luck, without giving up an underneath play, or wide open receivers . They will also need to shut down Trent Richardson and the Colts' running game. It will be hard to contain the run, and disrupt Luck, but if the Titans are going to win, they will need to do just that.
The game will be televised on CBS, but you can watch it via live stream via NFL Sunday Ticket. If you would like to tune in on the Radio, the Titans broadcast on WGOW AM 1150, and the Colts are on WFNI AM 1170.
