FPI: Set the draft board in Indy?

Monday night's loss in Nashville might have been a coup de grace for the Colts, whose playoff chances in ESPN's FPI fell under 1 percent for the first time this season. They currently have the third-best chance (4 percent) at getting the No. 1 overall pick next spring.

Brissett couldn't handle second-half blitz

The Titans blitzed the Colts only five times in the first half, and Jacoby Brissett completed all four of his passes against it for 40 yards and a TD, as well a 1-yard scramble. But in the second half, Brissett was blitzed nine times and was pressured on six of those. He didn't handle those extra rushers at all, completing just 2 of 9 passes for 17 yards.

Second-half struggles not an easy fix for Colts

The Colts were terrible in the second half again on Monday. After six weeks of bad performances after halftime, the excuses are getting to be old.

Finally! Titans end 11-game skid to Colts with 36-22 win

Marcus Mariota threw a 53-yard touchdown pass to Taywan Taylor with 5:29 left , and the Tennessee Titans beat the Indianapolis Colts 36-22 on Monday night to snap an 11-game skid tied for the NFL's longest active losing streak against one team.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Really impressed with Titans QB Marcus Mariota tonight. Clearly limited by that hamstring injury, Tennessee took out the boot and sprint passes in the game plan. All pocket throws. And Mariota still finished with 306 yards passing (23-of-32) with one touchdown and one interception.

Play-action with a deep corner route from Titans WR Taywan Taylor on the TD. That's tough on any two-deep coverage if the safety doesn't stay on top of the route. And with no help from the CB underneath, QB Marcus Mariota had a clear window to throw that ball.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

The consistent lack of a pass rush is beating the Colts again. Marcus Mariota, who is shying away from running with the ball, has all the time he needs in the pocket. He threw an easy 58-yard touchdown pass to Taywan Taylor to put Tennessee back up 29-22 with 5:29 left in the game.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Physical drive from the Titans. And smart play-calling inside the deep red zone. Forget the gadget plays. Go straight downhill with DeMarco Murray for the TD to take the lead.

The Colts have taken a bend, but don't break approach on defense so far. They've held the Titans to five field goals tonight. They should be glad about giving up only three points on that last series after Jack Doyle's fumble in Indy's territory.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Jack Doyle just gave the Titans some life. He fumbled after an 11-yard reception in Indy territory. The Titans are in position to tie the game up with a touchdown and extra point. That was Doyle's second fumble of the season.

Colts Rashaan Melvin has come up with two key pass breakups on third down since returning from leaving the game in the first half.

Colts linebacker John Simon, who has been the team's best defensive player this season, just showed off his vertical when he leaped and picked up off Marcus Mariota's pass and returned it for a touchdown. Adam Vinatieri hit the left upright on the extra point. Indy with a 19-9 lead.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

The Colts couldn't have asked for a better first half out of their offensive line. The o-line, which lost guard Jack Mewhort to a season-ending knee injury over the weekend, did not give up a sack in the first 30 minutes of the game. The clean pocket allowed Jacoby Brissett to go 12-of-17 for 119 yards and a touchdown in a half where Indy's defense held the Titans to just three field goals.

Mike Wells ESPN Staff Writer 

Former Colts linebacker Erik Walden finally had an impact on the game. He was called for roughing the passer, which gives Indy the ball first and goal from Titans' 7-yard line
