The Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans are both showing up to a huge matchup shorthanded. The Colts are going to be without Marlon Mack, T.Y. Hilton and Eric Ebron, while the Titans will be without Cameron Wake, Delanie Walker and Tajae Sharpe.
With both teams banged up and looking to their depth for answers, I am going against my head and history and saying that the roster for the Titans is more complete than what the Colts have. While both teams are missing starters and role players on both sides, if you look at the top-5 players on both sides of the ball I just can’t help that think that the Titans would be voted as the team with the edge on all counts.
No matter who is on the field, it always seems to be the Colts walking away with the win over a Tennessee Titans coaching staff that looks poorly prepared and shell shocked in crucial moments. With this game being extremely important to the Titans, I have to think that they will be prepared and that they won’t get caught sleep walking for the 10th season in a row (or whatever this awful streak is at now).
I’m going to get my heart broken again and pick the Titans to win a close game that matters vs the Colts.
Final score prediction: Titans 28, Colts 27
