Colts 35, Titans 33

Colts in gear after stifling comeback

NASHVILLE — Staring at their first 0-3 start since 2011, the Colts desperately needed a victory.

And Andrew Luck led the way.

The Colts' quarterback made sure Titans rookie Marcus Mariota will have to wait for his turn at a big win in this AFC South rivalry.

Luck threw for two touchdowns 56 seconds apart in the fourth quarter as he rallied Indianapolis to its first win this season.

"This win was big," Luck said. "That's a good Tennessee team, it's in the division, it's on the road. If this can jumpstart a hot streak, then that's what we need."

The Colts trailed 27-14 before Luck got going, and Luck improved to 7-0 against Tennessee with another stunning comeback.

Trailing 35-27, Mariota drove the Titans for a touchdown to make it 35-33 and the chance to tie it with 47 seconds left. A penalty put the ball at the 1 but rookie fullback Jalston Fowler was stopped for a big loss on the 2-point attempt.
