Luck Will Be Put To The Test In This GameThe Sportsman
This game will have a little of everything as the Colts will try to repeat their success from last week but the Titans do have a great defense so I’m interested in seeing just how Luck intends on moving the ball. Titans QB Jake Locker has been a pleasant surprise for this team so far; he moves the ball well and does not make tight throws that in double coverage. As a result of that they are not the high scoring offense they were once known for but they seem much more consistent.

I expect Tennessee to really run the ball against a questionable Colts secondary that has been shaky to say the least. This team really needs set things up for their receivers on offense, they need to make the small passes and get the ball moving, Locker needs to make better decisions in the red zone, they cannot depend on their running game as Greene is known for his fumbling issues.
The Colts finally got their first win of the season and what a win it was… Luck so far has thrown for just under 1000 yards and 9 touchdowns, four in the last game a lone. They seem to be sharing the ball very well but I would like to see a little more consistency in Reggie Wayne’s game, he looks like he is getting to the ball but his yardage after the point of contact need to improve. Their running game will be key if they want to get out of this game with the win and playing at home will be a big help.
I expect a slow game here, both defenses will come out kicking, the Colts have a great pass rush and I think that the Titans have just enough to keep both Richardson and Wayne under their eye, so if the Colts want to take this one they will have no choice but to keep the ball moving between offensive players, including a few of their rookies. I have the Colts winning this game 15 to 9.
