Week 6 brought the Tennessee Titans and the Indianapolis Colts together for the second time in six weeks. Their first game of the season was a blowout win for the Colts. The Titans and their rookie sensation wide receiver Higgins came into this game with a mission. That mission was to get him the ball and win the game. The first part of that mission was a success as Higgins ended the game with 210 yards, 3 touchdowns on 13 receptions. As successful as Higgins was, he can’t play defense and the Colts won the game 52-34.
Quarterback Brissett had his best game of the season and continues to be the gear that makes this Colts offense move. Brissett would end the game 9/10 for 319 yards and 5 touchdowns. His almost perfect play in this game is the main reason why the Colts won the game. Running back Hines shared carries with Pumphrey, running for 62 yards and a touchdown on 9 carries. Pumphrey would be just as efficient as he ran for 56 yards on 9 carries. Brissetts touchdowns were spread to three different receivers, Campbell, Hines, and Hilton. Campbell would end the game 3 receptions for 155 yards and 2 touchdowns. Hilton only call 2 receptions but took both of his receptions for touchdowns. Hines had a resepctable day through the air catching 4 receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown.
The Colts defense gave up a lot of points and yards this game, however, those yards came after being up for most of the game. The defense had a lot of success in different areas of their game, sacking the Titans Quarterback Fromm 5 times and intercepting him 3 times. They also, added a forced fumble from Linebacker Walker. Most of the sacks came from Defensive end Sheard, who had 3 sacks. Middle linebacker Leonard brought in 2 interceptions, while Cornerback Wilson brought in the other interception. The defense continues to play their part, by getting off to a fast start, making teams have to play from behind.
With this win the Colts are now 5-1 overall, 4-0 in the division. The 2 games left versus the much improved Jacksonville Jaguars could very well be the deciding factor for the division crown. They have upcoming games against the improved Packers and the undefeated Lions, then their bye week comes. If they can get wins out of those two games, going into their bye week at 7-1, they will be sitting pretty going into the second half of the season.
