Five standouts from Titans' 31-17 win over Colts

Colts' playoff hopes barely holding on after fourth-quarter meltdown - Indianapolis Colts Blog- ESPN

But this day was different. With the victory, the Titans now sit on a three-game winning streak.

The special teams, especially the field goal kicking unit - has been the Colts' Achilles heel all season. They need to win against the Colts secondary.

Trailing by 10 and facing fourth and one in the third quarter, Mike Vrabel knew his team needed a spark. The defense let Derrick Henry run wild on them to the tune of 149 yards and a touchdown.

Henry had a disastrous start to the game, fumbling on the very first play from scrimmage to set up a Colts touchdown. Only two of the Colts' 12 games have been decided by more than seven points. "We have to keep coming and keep understanding the impact he can have throughout the rest of the game, and he certainly did".

He's now 16-of-23 on field goals this year, and just 21-of-27 on extra points (he hit one of those today). "Either way, whether (a 10-6 record) gets us in or not, our approach doesn't change", Reich said. Tannehill made it official a couple plays later, but Brissett sealed the Colts' fate Sunday with that throw. Sunday marked the first time that Vinatieri had multiple kicks blocked in a game. "Every time we're on field goal block we go out there and give it our all because we believe we can get to every field goal". "Just trusting it - great schemes, guys getting open and guys getting plays", Brissett said of the gameplan against the Titans. In the past, this is a game the Titans would have surrendered to their division rival even though the deck was heavily stacked against the Colts because of their injuries. Instead, the 46-year-old kicker missed the first one wide right and had the second blocked after kicking it low and left. The special teams were absolute trash the entire game, and have been all season. "We went for the dagger there and we were able to make the play".

But then the second half happened, and the Titans bounced back in a big way with some huge plays in order to overcome their demons and finally hand the Colts a loss.

But that's where we are. Losing 4 of 5 isn't going to get you into the playoffs.

Now they have. And they carry the confidence that comes from it into a critical stretch run with their AFC South title and playoff hopes very much intact.
