Before his injury Sunday, Jacob Lacey was showing the kind of skills that earned him a starting spot for the first seven weeks. Paul Kuharsky writes that after struggling through the middle part of the season Lacey's return to form was key for the Colts win:

The Colts will have to win their last two games the same way they tried to win their first 14 -- without Peyton Manning.
The Indianapolis Colts' magic number for clinching the first pick in the 2012 draft remains two after the Colts (1-13) beat Tennessee and both the Minnesota Vikings (2-12) and the St. Louis Rams (2-12) lost Sunday.
Colts tight end Dallas Clark is out for Sunday's game against the Tennessee Titans with a neck injury. Clark missed four games after injuring his lower left leg, then played last week against Baltimore. Jacob Tamme will start in his place. Colts linebacker Philip Wheeler is out with a foot injury and Ernie Sims will replace him.
