Nashville, TN – This week’s game will mark the 49th all-time contest between the Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts. The Colts lead the series 32-16.
In the first meeting of 2018, played on November 18th at Lucas Oil Stadium, Andrew Luck totaled 297 yards and three touchdown passes to lead the Colts to a 38-10 victory. Titans starting quarterback Marcus Mariota left the game in the second quarter due to an elbow injury.
The last time the Titans and Colts met at Nissan Stadium was Monday night, October 16th, 2017, when the Titans snapped the Colts’ 11-game winning streak in the series with a 36-22 victory.
The Titans scored 21 points in the fourth quarter, including a 53-yard touchdown pass from Marcus Mariota to Taywan Taylor that broke a 22-22 tie.
In 2017, the Titans swept the season series with the Colts for the first time since 2002. Prior to 2017, the Colts swept the season series every year from 2012 through 2016.
The Titans and Colts have met only once in the postseason, a 19-16 Titans victory in a Divisional Playoff game in the RCA Dome on January 16th, 1999. Eddie George rushed for 162 yards, including a 68-yard touchdown run to help lead Tennessee during its run to Super Bowl XXXIV.
Three years later, in 2002, the NFL realigned, and the AFC South was created. The Titans moved from the AFC Central, and the Colts moved from the AFC East to form half of the new division.
The teams first clashed in 1970 following the AFL-NFL merger. The then-Baltimore Colts defeated the then-Houston Oilers 24-20 during the Colts’ run to a Super Bowl V Championship.
