Colts Outlast Titans 23-20 in Indianapolis

 

Written by The Associated Press

Tennessee TitansIndianapolis, IN – The Indianapolis Colts are back in the playoffs.

And they look like they’re ready to defend their AFC championship, too.

Peyton Manning threw two touchdown passes, the defense limited Chris Johnson to 39 yards rushing and the always-clutch Adam Vinatieri booted a 43-yard field goal as time expired Sunday to give the Colts a 23-20 victory over the Tennessee Titans. They earned their seventh — and most improbable — AFC South title in eight seasons.

“We know what they were up against and how difficult it was and to overcome all that and win the division,” owner Jim Irsay said, “it is extra special.”

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment Services

It was a relatively quiet week in terms of the economic data. Consumer confidence figures for December disappointed. However, what people say and what they do are two separate things (the soft confidence figure is countered by evidence of increased consumer spending). Evaluations of current job availability remained depressed. Holiday sales were reported as “strong,” but heavy snow buried post-Christmas sales in some areas.

Claims for unemployment insurance benefits fell below 400,000 in the Christmas week, but the figures are suspect due to the seasonal adjustment. Still, the trend in claims has been lower over the last few months – still relatively high by historical standards (we need to see the figure moving below 350,000 to be consistent with a “strong” job market), but moving in the right direction. The December Chicago Purchasing Managers survey and the November Pending Home Sales Index rose more than expected, but failed to have much of an impact on the markets. «Read the rest of this article»
