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.

FO Audibles week 15

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.
