The Titans are bound to lose sometime – especially considering they rely on their defense to win every game – but it won’t be tonight. They’ve had some decent success against the Colts over the years and there’s no letdown effect playing on national TV at home. Indy can’t stop the run; Tennessee can run. It seems like a match made in Heaven for the Titans and they shouldn’t have too much of an issue stopping Peyton Manning and the Colts’ high-powered offense, which appears to be less-high powered by the week. Indy struggled last week in Green Bay and while you can’t just revert back to previous weeks because the NFL is so unpredictable, there are some telltale signs that the Colts are in real trouble this season. It’s going to be close and the 4 points should scare you, but Tennessee should muster out at least a 6-point win. We predict the Titans over the Colts 16-10 and also like the under 40.
