Keys To The Game

For Indianapolis

2. Can the offensive line block Robert Mathis?

My Prediction

The Colts score first on a touchdown pass to T.Y. Hilton from Andrwew Luck for a 7 point lead. The Colts defense stops the Titans on their first drive and on their second drive the Colts score another touchdown. The Titans come back and on their next drive score a touchdown to close the gap to 7. In the 2nd quarter the Colts score another touchdown to take a 21-7 lead. The Titans add a field goal on their next drive to make the score 21-10. Neither team scores the rest of the half so the the Colts have an 11 point lead at halftime. The 3rd quarter starts with a touchdown for the Titans to cut the lead to 4. The Colts then answer back with a touchdown of their own. The Titans then add a field goal to cut the lead to 8. In the 4th quarter the Colts score a touchdown to increase their lead to 15. The Titans come right back and score a touchdown. Instead of kicking the extra point the Titans go for 2 and make it to cut the lead to 7 with 3 minutes left. The Colts take 2 minutes ff the clock and then kick a field goal for a 10 point lead. The lead is to big to overcome in the final minute for the Titans.

Final Score

Colts: 38
Titans: 28
