It's not always pretty, but the Colts are the masters of the fourth-quarter comeback this season.Indianapolis did it again on Sunday, coming back late to top the Tennessee Titans 27-23. Andrew Luck surpassed Vince Young & Ben Roethlisberger (5) en route to his sixth fourth-quarter comeback on the season, the most by a rookie quarterback since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970. Luck also topped his predecessor Peyton Manning for the most yards by a rookie in Colts history. With fellow Offensive Rookie of the Year candidate RGIII's injury status up in the air, Luck can swoop in & claim the award with a few more strong performances.With recovering coach Chuck Pagano once again in attendance, the Colts moved within one win of getting back to the postseason after a forgettable 2-14 campaign last year. Indy (9-4) outscored the Titans 20-3 in the second half after being outscored 20-7 by Tennessee in the first half. For the Titans (4-9), they're preparing for their fourth straight season without a playoff appearance.There were a lot of positives & negatives to take away from both teams, but there can only be one Hero and one Zero of the game:Hero: Cornerback Cassius Vaughn, Indianapolis ColtsVaughn gave the Colts their first lead of the game in the third quarter when he returned a Jake Locker interception three yards into the endzone. The third year cornerback out of Mississippi also led the team with eight solo tackles & three passes defended. In Vontae Davis' absence, Vaughn has filled in adequately, totaling 17 tackles & five passes defended in his last two games.Zero: Running back Chris Johnson, Tennessee TitansAlthough CJ2K eclipsed 1,000 yards rushing for the fifth straight season on Sunday, he did so in a mediocre performance, rushing for 44 yards on 19 carries. Johnson has rushed for 175 yards on 53 carries in his last three games, averaging 3.3 yards per carry. Inconsistency from Johnson & the Titans' offensive line have plagued Tennessee for the better part of the last two years. For the Titans to get back to their winning ways, they must re-establish the consistent running game that made Johnson a household name back in 2009 when he amassed 2,006 yards on the ground.
