Indianapolis 22, Tennessee 14

The Colts about gave this game away, as I figured the Colts would have no problem with the Titans on Sunday. I was wrong on that assumption.

The win not only gave the Colts a three-game lead in the division, but they earned the tiebreaker as well … but let’s be honest, they won’t need to use that tiebreaker this season.

Indianapolis’ offense wasn’t up to their standards Sunday as they depended on kicker Adam Vinatieri to kick five field goals before they scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter.

I don’t really understand why the Colts are struggling like they have, because they have a much better team than the way they’ve played as of late.

Look at Andrew Luck … he was 17-of-32 for 200 yards against the Titans with zero touchdown passes. There should never be a game where a player the caliber of Luck should not throw a TD pass. It can’t happen, especially in Week 13.

This team looks completely different since Reggie Wayne was injured. Don’t believe me? Watch the first offensive drive of the Colts Sunday … awful.

The running game of the Colts is sub-par at best as well. Donald Brown led with 14 rushes for 54 yards and the late TD run. Trent Richardson has been nothing but terrible for the Colts since they traded for him … yesterday, he rushed for 19 yards on five carries as he wasn’t the starter for the Colts. (Remember, the Colts traded a first-round pick for Richardson.)

The Titans were equally as boring on offense Sunday. Ryan Fitzpatrick was 21-of-37 for 201 yards with one TD pass and three interceptions.

Again, this game was nothing special. I figured the Colts would be playing so much better by this time of the season, but as of right now, they haven’t lived up to what I thought they would be.

Still, they are winning and leading the division, and that’s what the NFL is all about.
