Through 3 Quarters

Down four at the end of last quarter, the Indianapolis Colts have taken the lead. Sitting on a score of 27-17, they have looked like the better squad out there today, but there's still one more quarter to play.

What to Know

The Indianapolis Colts and the Tennessee Titans are set to square off in an AFC South matchup at 8:20 p.m. ET Nov. 12 at Nissan Stadium. The teams split their matchups last year, with the Colts winning the first 19-17 on the road and Tennessee taking the second 31-17.

Indianapolis entered their matchup against the Baltimore Ravens last week without any home losses -- but there's a first time for everything. Indianapolis came up short against Baltimore, falling 24-10. QB Philip Rivers had a pretty forgettable game, throwing one interception with only 5.28 yards per passing attempt.

Meanwhile, Tennessee beat the Chicago Bears 24-17 last week. No one had a standout game offensively for the Titans, but they got scores from FS Desmond King, TE Jonnu Smith, and WR A.J. Brown. QB Ryan Tannehill ended up with a passer rating of 142.20.

This next game is expected to be close, with the Colts going off at just a 1-point favorite. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with them, who are 4-4 against the spread.

Indianapolis is now 5-3 while Tennessee sits at 6-2. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Indianapolis enters the contest having picked the ball off 11 times, good for first in the league. But Tennessee enters the game with only three thrown interceptions, good for fourth best in the NFL. We'll see which of these strengths -- offense or defense -- will win out.
