Joshua: Chris Johnson has had some rough outings against Indianapolis. This season, the Titans brought in Shonn Greene, a running back had a career game against the 2012 Colts. He had 32 carries for 161 yards with three touchdowns. Which one of these running backs poses the biggest threat against the Colts defense in this matchup? The speedy Johnson or the powerful Greene?

J.M.: As a member of the New York Jets last season, Greene helped to give the Colts their most lopsided loss of the season. In 2013, the Colts haven’t been too bad against the run. Although, in the past few weeks, the Colts have let wideouts like Eric Decker, Andre Johnson, and Tavon Austin look like super heros. I’d almost expect the Titans to exploit the passing game, even with a reserve quarterback.
