Each week Colts.com will take a look at the rest of the AFC South and review the previous weekend’s games.
Titans 37, Dolphins 3
-The Titans head into their bye week fresh off their most dominating performance of the year. With quarterback Jake Locker back as the starting quarterback, the Titans struck quickly with a pair of first quarter touchdowns. Tennessee linebacker Colin McCarthy added to the scoring with a 49-yard interception return for a touchdown early in the second quarter to make the score 21-0. Titans running back Chris Johnson had 126 yards and a touchdown as Locker threw for two touchdowns. Tennessee forced four turnovers, including three interceptions of Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill.
NEXT GAME: @Jacksonville, 11/25 at 1:00 EST
Colts 27, Jaguars 10
-Looking for a season sweep of the Colts, the Jaguars were stymied by a strong Indianapolis defense. The Colts had four sacks on the evening, forced three turnovers and held Jacksonville to just one-of-10 on third down. Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert left the contest in the second half with a shoulder injury and backup Chad Henne came on in relief to lead Jacksonville on its lone touchdown drive of the evening. Henne found wide receiver Cecil Shorts III for a four-yard touchdown catch with just under 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter to cut the lead to 24-10, but the Colts carved out six-minute drive on the next possession that ended with an Adam Vinatieri 41-yard field goal.
NEXT GAME: @Houston, Sunday at 1:00 EST
Texans 13, Bears 6
-Thanks to a stout defensive performance, the Texans defeated the Bears during a downpour throughout much of the game in the Windy City. Houston’s defense forced four turnovers as Bears quarterback Jay Cutler did not return to the game after halftime due to a concussion. Houston running back Arian Foster had 29 carries for 102 yards and his two-yard touchdown reception late in the first half was the lone touchdown for either team on the evening. Houston will now have two games in four days starting on Sunday as the Texans have a Thanksgiving matchup with the Lions.
NEXT GAME: Jacksonville, Sunday at 1:00 EST.
