Colts vs. Titans: Takeaways from Indianapolis' Comeback Win Over Tennessee

Just like they have all season, the Indianapolis Colts followed up a poor loss with a rebound win over the Tennessee Titans. The win wasn't pretty, and the Colts had to comeback from a 14-point deficit, but does it come any other way for Indianapolis? 

The Colts fell behind 14-0 before getting on the board on an Adam Vinatieri field goal. They would cut it down to 17-6 after the teams traded field goals before the half.

Something clicked at halftime, however, and the Colts offense came to life, scoring a touchdown on the opening drive of the second half as running back Donald Brown found a seam around the left end. After a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, the Colts scored again, this time a phenomenal scramble by quarterback Andrew Luck from 11 yards out. 

The momentum was all Indianapolis from there. The Colts went on to score another field goal in the third before a game-icing drive ended in another Brown touchdown run.

The Colts now leave Tennessee with a 30-27 win and a three-game lead in the division. 

Indianapolis continues to show that as a young team with deficiencies, it'll have its down moments. But, with a quarterback like Luck and a few weapons with high upside, it'll have its highs as well.
