The 2-3 Indianapolis Colts travel to Tennessee to take on the 2-3 Titans in this week’s Monday night matchup with each team coming off very different weeks. Tennessee was beaten 16-10 on the road by the Miami Dolphins. They played without injured quarterback Marcus Mariotta who was inactive from a hamstring injury suffered in week 4. His status for this game is questionable. If he is not cleared to play, his replacement would be Matt Cassell, who took his place last week. Indianapolis blew a 16-10 halftime lead but held on with a 26-23 overtime home victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Receiver Krishnan Hogan hurt his leg on a kickoff return and had to be carried off the field and has been placed on injured reserve.

The Titans only produced 210 yards of offense against Miami and was 2 for 13 on third down conversions. Matt Cassell really struggled finishing with a quarterback rating of 18.5. He completed 21 of 32 passes for 141 yards, 1 touchdown, 0 interceptions and 1 lost fumble. Jonnu Smith was his favorite target with 5 catches for 21 yards. Demarco Murray led the running game with 58 yards on 14 carries. Out of 13 third downs, they converted on just 2. Defensively, they played well limiting the Dolphins to just 192 yards of total offense including just 92 in the air. They forced 2 turnovers and had 6 tackles for losses. On the season, the Titans defense has allowed an average of 28 points and 357 yards per game.

Indianapolis gained 475 yards of offense last week as they had both the passing and running games working. Jacoby Brisset completed 22 of his 34 passes for 314 yards, 0 touchdowns and 1 interception. His favorite target was T.Y. Hilton who had a monster game with 7 catches for 177 yards. They also gained 159 yards and scored 2 touchdowns on 35 carries. Marlon Mack led the team with 91 yards and a touchdown on 9 carries. Defensively, they allowed San Francisco to gain 419 yards of offense and weren’t able to produce a turnover. They sacked Brian Hoyer twice and had five tackles for losses.

At 2-3 both teams are only 1 game out of first place in a very winnable AFC South. Andrew Luck has already been ruled out for this game and his return will have to wait at least another week. Tennessee has home field advantage and with Mariotta’s status still up in the air, there is no spread at press time. If he plays the Titans can be expected to be 7-point favorites. With an extra day of rest this week the team is optimistic he will be able to play. The Colts have gone 3-2 against the spread this season covering in all 3 of their home games. In their 2 road games, both losses, they were outscored 92-27. Tennessee is 2-3 against the spread this season including 1-1 at home.
