The Titans have surged into the playoff picture by scoring 77 points in home victories over Kansas City and Jacksonville sandwiched around their bye week. Tennessee running back Derrick Henry has led the charge with 347 rushing yards and four touchdowns in the two games, leaving him nine yards shy of his second straight 1,000-yard season. "Late in the year, I feel like that's ultimately when he's at his best," Titans safety Kevin Byard told reporters about Henry. "Guys are banged up. Guys don't want to tackle this man in the fourth quarter. I'm glad I don't have to because he's on my team. ..." The Colts have won three straight meetings after a 19-17 victory at Tennessee in Week 2 behind three touchdown passes by Jacoby Brissett.

Hilton (team highs of 378 receiving yards and five TDs) has only five catches for 72 yards in his last two games.
