When the Tennessee Titans travel up to Indianapolis for the last game of the year on Sunday. Neither team has a lot to play for, the Colts have a 0ne in 3000 chance to make the 2015 playoffs, and the Titans will only lose, if they win.
How would you like to have season tickets at Lucas Oil Stadium for this duzy that has a 1PM eastern kickoff?
The last time these two teams met back in September, the Colts won 35-33 on the strength of a failed two point run by rookie Jalston Fowler at the end of regulation.
With Marcus Mariota and Andrew Luck both under center for their respective teams, it was one of the more exciting games the Titans played all year, and unfortunately, lost on what I felt was a dumb call by former head coach Ken Whisenhunt.
We are unsure at this time as to who we will see at quarterback on either team this time around. It’s unclear if Mariota will be recovered enough from his MCL sprain to make this start, and the situation in Indianapolis is even more murkey.
Andrew Luck wants to make a start before the end of the season, but no one is sure if he will be able to practice, or be cleared to play.
Matt Hasselbeck has started the last six games for head coach Chuck Pagano, but his status remains up in the air as well.
The Colts signed former Tampa Bay quarterback, Josh Freeman yesterday, and used their last roster spot on quarterback, Ryan Lindley.
Freeman is a 2009 first round draft pick who mad 60 starts as a four-year starter in Tampa before being traded to the Minnesota Vikings as a backup. He also did stints in New York with the giants and lastly with the Miami Dolphins.
With former Titans backup, Charlie Whitehurst going down last week in Miami, we will probably see Josh Freeman on Sunday.
The Dolphins cut Freeman prior to the start of the 2015 season. Freeman most recently played with the Brooklyn Bolts of the Fall Experimental Football League (FXFL).

In 61 career NFL games, Freeman is a 57.6 percent passer, throwing for 13,724 yards, 80 touchdowns and 67 interceptions.
I have to agree with my colleague, Paul Colter and his post yesterday “Tennessee Titans: All Rookie Show This Sunday“.
It would be a great time for the Titans to play all of the rookies in the last game. Number one, it gives them some time on the field at NFL speed, and number two, it will give them some tape to refer to for those who will be cut, or traded.
The only person who will benefit from a Titans win in the last game is Mike Mularkey.
The entire NFL community has already projected the dismissal of both, Mike Mularkey and general manager, Ruston Webster, and with Chip Kelly now on the market, that seems to be the next logical step.
I agree with ESPN Titans reporter, Paul Kuharsky that a Marcus Mariota/Chip Kelly reunion in Music City amy not be the best thing for Mariota, or this franchise.
That all sounds like good fodder for next week after “Black Monday”!
It’s hard to preview a game where no one is sure who is going to play, so my advice is to just take this game as it comes.
Maybe the Titans will get lucky and lose another game to secure that number one pick, but that’s why we watch the games.
