Fantasy Football Champs:
The Colts finally claimed their first win of the season with a 27-13 victory over the Titans at Lucas Oil Stadium. Indy is now 1-13 while Tennessee continues to stumble at 7-7.
Quarterback Dan Orlovsky completed 11 of 17 passes for 82 yards, with one touchdown against no interceptions. Donald Brown was the key engineer in the win as he pounded out 161 rushing yards and a touchdown on 16 totes, while Joseph Addai remained a nonfactor with a mere 20 yards on 11 carries. Former stud Reggie Wayne had just three grabs for 33 yards, but did manage to collect a touchdown.

When Donald Brown broke an 80-yard touchdown run against the Titans on Sunday, it marked one of the lone bright spots in a season that has been one of the most depressing in Indianapolis Colts history. The Colts finally picked up their first win of the year on their 14th try, one that also happened to the first of Dan Orlovsky’s career as an NFL starter. Orlovsky even threw a block...
After Sunday's win Dan Orlovsky had exercised some demons:
Three minutes later, Orlovsky deployed the offense in the "victory formation," took a final knee, and ran off the field with the football.
It was his 10th start and 19th appearance in seven NFL seasons. It was his first victory. He wasn't giving away the game ball. Orlovsky played for the 2008 Detroit...
We’re not supposed to root, but it was hard not to root for Dan Orlovsky on Sunday. No one deserves to go down in history as the quarterback of the only two NFL teams that went 0-16. Orlovsky didn’t do a lot of passing in the Colts’ win, but he did make a big block…

Finally, the boarder chipped in. Living free and clear with running back Donald Brown since signing with the Indianapolis Colts as a free agent in late September, quarterback Dan Orlovsky provided a bit of payback Sunday afternoon at Lucas Oil Stadium.
Donald Brown didn't have a carry in the Indianapolis Colts' first four games. He didn't have as many as 10 in any of the first seven games.
Dan Orlovsky threw one touchdown pass and the key block on an 80-yard TD run, leading the Colts to their first win of the season, 27-13 over Tennessee on Sunday.
Since it's Christmas, let's be glad Even if your life's been bad There are presents to be had
In the span of three minutes in the third quarter, the Colts emerged from their long winter's nap. Dan Orlovsky finished off a touchdown drive with his only good throw of the day, but what a throw it was. He dropped the ball into the outstretched hands of Reggie...
Reggie Hayes ponders whose shoulders are feeling the most relief this morning:
Is it Jim Caldwell, the coach who avoids an 0-for-season with the Colts' 27-13 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium? Is it Dan Orlovsky, the quarterback who escapes the extreme indignity of leading two winless teams? Is it Jacob Lacey, the cornerback burned countless times...
Yeah you heard right, hell just froze over! The rapture’s coming people! It’s the end of the world! Seriously, how else could you explain today’s events? The Indianapolis Colts finally won their first game of the season beating the Tennessee Titans. Tim Tebow wasn’t able to deliver his usual fourth-quarter magic as the Denver Broncos suffered their first loss in seven games...
The Indianapolis Colts finally won without Peyton Manning. It just took 14 games and three quarterbacks to get there. Dan Orlovsky threw one touchdown pass, a key block on an 80-yard TD run and the Colts defense held Chris Johnson to 55 yards rushing, to beat Tennessee 27-13 and avoid becoming the second 0-16 team in league history.
The guys don't give the Colts that much credit:
I expected the Titans to win, but gave the Colts a chance if the Titans had trouble moving the ball offensively. It was apparent in the first quarter that Johnson would not have a good game and that the Titans' wideouts would struggle immensely to win in coverage. The Titans gave them good field position with a mediocre punt...
The Indianapolis Colts were winless and appeared to be playing not to lose on Sunday. But Pat Angerer and Donald Brown would have none of it.
