The NFL season is rolling by quickly and week 7 has a ton of games worth watching. After a huge game from the Indianapolis Colts, they’re heading to Tennessee to face the Titans. Each of these teams have three wins under its belt and are searching for its fourth in week 7.

The Tennessee Titans had a week to recover after going on a bye week in week 6. Now, with a little bit of rest, they should be able to hit the ground quickly. The break in week 6 was likely good for Derrick Henry, the team's workhorse. So, who should you take in this week 7 game?

Colts vs. Titans Preview, Trends and Stats

The Indianapolis Colts earned their third win of the season with a 34-27 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. In that game, we saw flashes of the young Matt Ryan, who led his team to a much-needed win. Let’s take a look at how Ryan performed under center in week 6.

Ryan passed for 389 yards on 42 completions for three touchdowns. He didn’t throw any interceptions and his offensive line gave him a lot of time to work. This week, as he prepares to face the Titans, he’ll need even more help. Still, the main problem for the Colts is defense.

They allowed the Jaguars to score 27 points last week. On average, Indianapolis is giving up 20.2 points per game. Although this isn’t a lot, it’s still a bit more than we’d like to see. Their defense against the run is the thing that concerns us the most, however.

On average, the Colts are allowing 121 yards rushing each game. This plays right into what the Tennessee Titans like to do most. Recently, we’ve noticed that Titans RB Derrick Henry is beginning to heat up. In week 5, Henry rushed for 102 yards and two touchdowns.

The Titans are going to try to establish their running game early. From there, they’ll be able to pick apart the soft spots in the Colts defense. This won’t be an easy game for either team, but the game plan favors the Titans more.

Colts vs. Titans Picks

When looking at this game from a distance, some might take the Indianapolis Colts. After how they performed last week, we understand the attraction to the Colts +2.5. However, their passing attack against the Jaguars was an anomaly compared to the rest of the season. Take week 5 against the Broncos for an example; the Colts failed to score a single touchdown.

The Tennessee Titans are coming off of a restful week, adding a few players back into the lineup. A win here would further solidify their position at the top of their division. All they’ll need to do is cover 2.5 points, which shouldn’t be a problem.

Final Score 23-17 (Titans)

EXTRA POINTS

1. The total has gone under in 10 of Indianapolis' last 11 games.

2. Indianapolis is 1-5 against the spread in their last 6 games against Tennessee.

3. Tennessee is 6-0 against the spread in their last 6 games played in October.

Best Bet: Titans -2.5 (-115) and Under 42.5 (-110)

Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennessee Titans Recap OCT 23TH 2022

Randy Bullock kicked four field goals, Derrick Henry rushed for 128 yards and the Tennessee Titans earned a season sweep of the AFC South rival Indianapolis Colts with a 19-10 victory Sunday at Nashville, Tenn.

Tennessee (4-2) won its fourth straight game and also also earning a tiebreaker advantage over Indianapolis (3-3-1) after sweeping the season series. The Titans also scored in the fourth quarter for the first time this season.

Bullock did the fourth-quarter honors with field goals of 38 and 48 yards. The latter came with 4:47 left in the game, giving Tennessee a two-score lead. The Colts coughed up their third turnover of the day with a Michael Pittman Jr. fumble on their final possession to seal their fifth straight loss to the Titans.

Tennessee quarterback Ryan Tannehill completed 13 of 20 passes for 132 yards and played the fourth quarter with an ankle injury. Most of the Titans' offense was Henry, who rushed 30 times and went over 100 yards for the third straight week.

Indianapolis quarterback Matt Ryan completed 33 of 44 passes for 243 yards and a 4-yard touchdown to Parris Campbell with 4:07 left in the third quarter. But Ryan also tossed two interceptions, giving him nine in seven games, and was sacked three times.

Neither team did much offensively in a quick first half. The only points either offense scored came via a pair of Bullock field goals. He connected from 27 yards with 4:03 left in the first quarter and from 28 at the 1:57 remaining in the first half.

Tennessee's defense had full control of Ryan and the Indianapolis attack. After playing a turnover-free game last week in a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars when he threw for 389 yards, Ryan was mistake prone again.

Ryan's biggest miscue came when he rushed a throw to his left in the second quarter while under pressure from Bud Dupree. Safety Andrew Adams undercut the route and picked it off. He ran 76 untouched yards for the Titans' only touchdown that helped build a 13-0 halftime lead.
