The Titans (7-5) snapped a three-game losing streak in the series, winning for only the third time in the past 17 meetings.

Colts: Vinatieri missed a 55-yarder that sailed wide right and a 53-yarder that was blocked in the first half.

Henry kicked himself for his early game fumble, which set up an early field goal by the Titans.

It looked like the Colts might regain the lead in the fourth quarter, but Dane Cruikshank blocked Adam Vinatieri's field goal attempt.

What did kill the game for the Colts were the special teams as a whole.

For as well as the Colts played in the first half, they came away with only 10 points after starting two of their five possessions inside Titans territory and one on their own 41. Hilton, tight end Eric Ebron and running back Marlon Mack. Derrick Henry carried 26 times for 149 yards and one touchdown, becoming the first runner to top the 100-yard mark against Indy in 30 games. They did force two turnovers and should have forced a third, but the refs continue to be garbage in this league.

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. The Colts finished with six sacks.

QB Breakdown: Brissett went from looking he'd have a strong bounce-back from his worst performance of the season against Houston in Week 12 (129 yards passing) to being part of the problem. Tannehill was efficient, completing 17 of 22 passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns. Brissett fired deep down the middle of the field where Ryan was waiting to put the game on ice for the Titans. He tied his career high with seven overthrown passes, three of which were intended for Doyle.
