Tennessee TitansThe Titans visited Indianapolis last week and needed extra hours to secure a 34-31 victory over the Colts (3-5) and extend their lead in the division standings. The Colts are three games behind in second place, followed by the Jacksonville Jaguars (1-6) and Houston Texans (1-7).

In the final two minutes of the fourth quarter, rookie cornerback Elijah Molden gave the Titans a seven-point lead with an interception return for a touchdown. However, the Colts scored with 22 seconds left to tie the score 31-31 and force overtime. In the extra period, Titans safety Kevin Byard recorded his fourth interception of the season to set the offense in place for Randy Bullock’s winning 44-yard field goal.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill helped bring the team back from an early 14-0 deficit. He completed three touchdown passes, underscored by a 57-yard pass to wide receiver AJ Brown. Tannehill was credited with his 12th NFL winning streak since joining the Titans in 2019, while Brown set a new career high with 155 receiving yards on 10 catches (a tied career high) .
