There were three major takeaways from the Tennessee Titans’ Week 13 victory over the Indianapolis Colts.
The Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts came into Sunday’s matchup with matching 6-5 records. The importance of this game for both teams was obvious from the respective standpoints of both the AFC South and the wild card race.
However, everyone who follows this rivalry knows that this game is much bigger than win-loss records, especially from the Titans’ perspective.
The Colts came into this game winning 19 of the last 22 matchups, including a 19-17 victory inside Nissan Stadium during their Week 2 contest. This game meant much more for Tennessee than just going to 7-5 from a morale standpoint, and laying a dud in this game could have potentially been a dagger in the season.
The Titans started shaky early on but the team pulled it together in all three phases in order to eventually cruise their way to a comfortable 31-17 victory over their arch-nemesis from Indianapolis.
With all that being said, these are three of the main things I took away following the Titans’ 14-point victory over the Colts.
