It may not have been pretty, but in the end, a win is a win, and anytime the Titans beat the Colts, it’s a reason to smile.
Sunday the Titans did what they needed to do, as Nate Washington scored twice, on a catch and a run, and the Titans took care of business with a 27-10 win at LP Field.
The Titans recover to 4-3 on the year, and recover after they were pounded 41-7 by the Houston Texans a week ago. They also break an ugly two-game losing streak.
The Titans lead 3-0 after a Rob Bironas 51-yard field goal in the first quarter, and early in the second the special teams came through with a big play.
Tennessee rushed Indy punter Pat McAfee, and got to it before it left the end zone. Jason McCourty picked it out of the air for the touchdown, and the Titans lead 10-0.
Washington scored on a three-yard run right before half, as the Titans took a 20-0 lead into the locker room. Matt Hasselbeck had a good day, going 23-for-33 for 224 yards with a TD and no picks.
Javon Ringer led the run game with 60 yards on 14 carries, while again Chris Johnson did little, as he put up just 30 yards on 14 carries for the Titans.
Curtis Painter went 26-for-49 for Indy for 250 yards with no touchdowns and two picks. The QB led the team with 79 yards on the ground as well.
The Titans are at home next Sunday to play rookie Andy Dalton and the Bengals.
