Tennessee TitansWatch out for Andrew Luck to tear up the middle of this struggling Titans defense, who lead the league in points against. On a side note, Donald Brown is reported to be back which would be a significant boost for the Colts offense. With that being said, I expect this game to be very close and the defense that makes less mistakes will be the victor. Take the Colts this week, They will not lose by 4 points.Atlanta Falcons +1 v. Philadelphia EaglesFalcons +1 this week? This has to be a trap game right? One who bets may tend to believe such a thing but that’s only if they have not seen Mike Vick place this year. Man, what an embarrassment he has been. Yes, he can run, but can he hold on to the ball? NO. Yes, Michael has a strong passing arm, but does ...

Colts 19, Titans 13 (OT)

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- This is why the Indianapolis Colts drafted Andrew Luck with the top overall pick in April.

Colts Building a Dynamic Running Attack

There has been no more disappointing area for the Colts offense over the past six years than its inability to rush the football. For some time the ground game was defended as efficient in short-yardage and as a "change of pace" from the Peyton Manning-led passing attack, dismissing its effectiveness as a true offensive weapon -- because it wasn't. Suffer no delusions...

He's #Chuckstrong. Are you? (Colts Instagram Account) 4-3, second place in the AFC South.  I'll be honest, I wasn't so sure this could happen.  3-3 with a minute left in the half sounds like a defensive struggle with big, game changing plays from both defenses.  What actually transpired was two teams moving the ball well through the air, with both quarterbacks averaging...

Point is...
