In terms of the on-field action, most of the first-team offense played one drive, as did most of the first-team defense. The Titans got 3 points...

Optimism vs. Reality

Since their stunning upset of the Green Bay Packers the Indianapolis Colts have been the subject of intensely positive media attention. Not only was the victory incredibly unlikely and a harbinger of Andrew Luck's future but it also had a bit of mythological heroism to it due to the recent announcement that head coach Chuck Pagano is battling leukemia.
