NOTES: The Tennessee Titans are coming off a huge overtime win against the Baltimore Ravens, scoring 30-24. This team is led by Derrick Henry, one of the best running backs in the NFL. Henry is currently tied third in the NFL in rushing touchdowns with nine. He is also number one in the NFL in total rushing yards with 1079 rushing yards. Ryan Tannehill has also done a serviceable job at quarterback. While he might not be in the tier of other MVP caliber quarterbacks like Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson, he is good enough to get the job done as this team currently sits 7-3. The defense is middle of the line, but also serviceable enough to get the job done. Malcolm Butler is eighth in the league in passes defended with 11 on the season. In their first matchup with Indianapolis, they lost by over 10 points. So this will be a huge game for Tennessee as they look to clinch the division title and avoid competing in the Wild Card.

The Indianapolis Colts have emerged to be one of the most complete teams in the NFL. They currently sit 7-3 and 1st place in the AFC South division. This roster has one of the best offensive lines and defenses in the NFL. It is also worth mentioning that they have one of the most underrated groups of skill position players. While there are no standout players in this group, it is headlined by two rookies who are putting up excellent numbers in recent games. Michael Pittman scored a touchdown last week after putting up 101 yards in the game prior. Jonathon Taylor also contributed with 114 scrimmage yards against Green Bay last week, a game which they won in overtime. They are set to face off against the Tennessee Titans, a team they are neck and neck with. The winner of this upcoming game will likely sneak out as the division champion and earn a lock for the playoffs.
