Most Recent Match Ups between Tennessee Titans, Indianapolis Colts

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts have played 54 all-time games, including playoffs. The Colts lead the series 35-19.

They have split the series in each of the past two seasons. The Colts swept the Titans every year from 2012 through 2016, until 2017, when the Titans swept the season series for the first time since 2002.

In the first meeting of 2021, the Titans won 25-16 at Nissan Stadium.

Ryan Tannehill completed three touchdown passes, and Derrick Henry rushed for 113 yards to help the Titans to their second consecutive win over the Colts.

In 2020, the Titans and Colts played two games in a three-week span. In the first meeting on November 12th, a nationally-televised Thursday night game in Tennessee, the Colts scored 24 consecutive points and took advantage of Titans special teams miscues to secure a 34-17 victory. The Titans had a punt for 17 yards, a punt blocked and a missed field goal contribute to the defeat.

In the 2020 rematch at Lucas Oil Stadium on November 29th, the Titans won 45-26. Henry rushed for 178 yards and three touchdowns, while Tannehill threw for 221 yards with a 69-yard touchdown to A.J. Brown. Brown added a late 42-yard kickoff return touchdown to become the first player in franchise history with a receiving touchdown and a kickoff return touchdown in the same game.

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.
