Titans 27, Colts 10

Titans offense iffy but still sufficient

NASHVILLE — The Titans were happy to win, but a running back controversy might be inevitable.

Matt Hasselbeck threw for 224 yards and a TD, Nate Washington scored twice and Jason McCourty recovered a blocked punt in the end zone as the Titans dropped the Colts to 0-8.

The Titans came in with the NFL's worst running game and Chris Johnson struggled again, running 14 times for 34 yards. Javon Ringer ran 14 times for 60 yards and caught a team-high five passes for 42 yards.

"The running game hasn't been where we wanted it to be all year, so I guess they just trying new things," Johnson said.

The Colts outgained Tennessee 399-311, but had 10 penalties for 66 yards.
