Fourth down or touchdown
Off by inches, off by mile
Anemic offense


Two fourth down failures
Give Titans short field to score
Make them earn each yard.


It is a fine line
Between good teams and av'rage.
Consistency key.


Replay reticence
Clear fumble ; no Colt challenge
Reluctant red flag


Colts run, Titans pass
Nobody knows anything
Skewed stats but no win.


Titans unbeaten
Colts division slips away
Hopes pinned on wild card.


Depleted D-line
The punishers and punished
spent by fourth quarter


Good half or quarter
But sustained disciplined effort
seems beyond these Colts.
