Colts vs. Titans stay rating, updates, highlights from ‘Thursday Night time Soccer’ sport
A pair of AFC South heavyweights will square off on “Thursday Night Football” as the Titans host the Colts to begin Week 10 of the 2020 NFL season.
This will be Philip Rivers’ first game in the prime-time spotlight with Indianapolis. The veteran quarterback has been so-so this year and has definitely shown signs of age at 38. The Colts (5-3) haven’t needed him to be stellar, though, just solid enough to put up some points, take care of the ball and let the defense do the heavy lifting. Indianapolis’ defense allows 290 yards per game, fewest in the NFL, and is third in scoring defense at 20 points allowed per game.
Similar to Rivers, Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill doesn’t have the flashiest passing yardage numbers, but he has thrown 19 touchdowns with just three interceptions. He leads an effective offense built around running back Derrick Henry. In eight games, Henry has rushed for 843 yards (105.4 per game) and eight touchdowns. He’s a big reason why the Titans (6-2) lead the AFC South despite having a middle-of-the-pack defense (13th in yards allowed, 16th in points allowed).
