Tonight: Colts (6-6) at Titans (5-7)
Time/TV/radio: 8:20; NFL Network; 1010-AM
Line, OU: Colts by 3, 45
The more you watch both these clubs, the harder it is to make a case that either one should be a playoff team. It's starting to look like Peyton Manning can't will this team to a defense of its AFC title, and the Titans are grasping at straws with quarterback changes and player acquisitions (Randy Moss). The gut feeling is the Colts — specifically Manning — get it together. At 6-6, the season is riding on it.
Holder's pick: Colts 24, Titans 20
