Week 8: Colts vs Titans, Open Thread

The Tennessee Titans come to Lucas Oil Sunday for a huge divisional matchup against the Indianapolis Colts.

Currently sitting at 3-4, a win would boost the Colts’ chances at making the playoffs. A loss, on the other hand, would put the Titans ahead by two games within the division and makes a playoff push much more difficult.

Unlike in their Week 3 matchup, things are much different this time around. Quarterback Carson Wentz is completely healthy and has been playing some of the best football of his career over the last month. The same goes for Indianapolis’ offensive line, who’ll have all five starters playing in a game for the first time all season.

On the other side, Titans’ running back Derrick Henry has been tough to stifle in each of his meetings with the Colts. In his last six starts against Indy, Henry has rushed for nearly 120 yards. It won’t be easy slowing the NFL’s leading rusher down Sunday, but the Colts can’t let Henry take over the game.

There’s a lot at stake for both teams, but the Colts desperately need to find a way to win on their home turf Sunday in order to keep pace for the AFC South title this season.
