Game Day Recap: Titans Victorious Over Colts And Worried About Henry

The Titans had to dig out of a 14-0 hole early in the game after quarterback Carson Wentz methodically walked the Colts 82 yards down the field for a score on the first series of the game, only to get the ball back into his hands a few plays later when Ryan Tannehill was intercepted. On a first and goal Wentz found WR Michael Pittman again for back to back scores.

Although the Colts kept Darrick Henry bottled up, Tannehill rebounded, moving the chains with the help of TE Jeff Swaim, ultimately targeting him in the end zone. Swaim delivered with a catch for a touchdown. From there it was game on with the Titans and Colts trading blows and scores.

Wide receiver A.J. Brown had another big game with 10 receptions, one going for 56 yards and a touchdown. He finished the game with 155 passing yards. Undrafted free agent WR Nick Westbrook-Ikhine continues to have a solid season, coming up with big catches when the Titans need them most. Tannehill found him too in the end zone with a perfectly timed 5 yard slant pass for a touchdown.

Derrick Henry rushed for just 68 yards, but moved the chains on some critical third downs with bruising short distance running, this despite an injury. He limped to the sideline briefly, returning with a taped foot. He finished the game but his toughness may cost him the season. Henry is awaiting the results of an MRI for a suspected Jones fracture.

On the defensive side, the Titans were opportunistic and resilient, overcoming some costly mistakes. Once again, the linebacking crew led by Harold Landry and Bud Dupree, played strong, pressuring Wentz and assisting the D-line who held Colts RB Jonathan Taylor to 16 carries of 70 yards.

Defensive back Elijah Molden intercepted Wentz inside the 5 yard line, scoring a touchdown. And safety Kevin Byard saved the game in OT with an interception, redeeming himself after a costly passing interference penalty set the Colts up for a score. Byard intercepted Wentz at the 46 yard line returning the ball to the 32, setting Randy Bullock up for a kick. Bullock delivered on a 46 yarder, right down the middle of the uprights, putting the Titans up 34-31 ending the game.
