(NASHVILLE) — Andrew Luck and Donald Brown combined to rush for three touchdowns as the Indianapolis Colts rallied from a 14-point deficit to edge the Tennessee Titans 30-27 on Thursday night.
The Colts (7-3) have been outscored 35-0 in the first quarters of their last three games. They were able to put together a strong second half to ensure they would not suffer a second straight loss.
“At the end of the day winning is what matters,” Luck said after throwing for 232 yards in the win. “We were fortunate in this game to survive our mistakes and have a chance to win….But we know that’s got to be fixed.”
Tight end Coby Fleener caught a career-high eight passes for 107 yards to help the Colts rebound from a 38-8 home loss to the Rams last week.
Chris Johnson rushed for 86 yards and two scores, but the Titans (4-6) lost for the fifth time in six games.
“We’ve got to find that winning formula, whatever it is,” Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick said. “We have to find a way to pull these games out at the end. It’s a tough locker room in there right now. That’s two in a row that kind of slipped away from us. Two big ones, two costly ones for us.”
