Mariota averaged 7.4 yards per pass and had a 59.1 percent completion rate.
The Titans won due to their ability to create big plays: two blocked field goals (one that went for a touchdown), two interceptions, Henry had a couple of huge runs and Kalif Raymond caught his first National Football League touchdown on a 40-yard bomb in the fourth quarter. For the Tennessee Titans, it's their star running back Derrick Henry, who showed up on Wednesday's injury report with a hamstring injury. Indianapolis clearly missed T.Y. Hilton, who sat out with a calf injury. Including Tennessee's field goal return for a touchdown, 17 of the Titans' 31 points came off of turnovers. The Titans are still riding that wave of momentum they created three weeks ago, when they blocked Harrison Butker's field-goal attempt to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in Nashville.
But Vinatieri's misses weren't the Colts' only problem.
The Colts are a ideal 7-0 against the spread in their last seven matchups versus AFC South opponents and are 40-19 against the spread in their last 59 games coming off a loss. The Colts (6-6) play three of their final four games of the season on the road, including a Monday Night contest at New Orleans.
The Titans are just 3-13 against the spread in their last 16 games versus the Colts and are 1-7 against the number in their last eight games played at Lucas Oil Stadium. He has not missed a game since his rookie season. The two division rivals meet on Sunday in Indianapolis with identical 6-5 records in what could be an elimination game for the loser. Two of his field goals were blocked, and Vinatieri missed his first try of the day from 55 yards. Two plays later, Brissett sailed a pass intended for Zach Pascal, and it was picked off by Logan Ryan.
-Harold Landry was sensational for the Titans once again after notching his ninth sack of the season and bringing the pressure that led to one of two Brissett picks. The good? Tannehill completed 77 percent of his passes and had two passing touchdowns, with his biggest completion coming on a 40-yard bomb to Kalif Raymond that was the dagger in the fourth quarter.
