Strong second half leads Colts over Titans

Nashville, TN ( - Donald Brown rushed for 80 yards and two touchdowns and Andrew Luck ran for a score as the Indianapolis Colts overcame an 11-point halftime deficit to down the Tennessee Titans, 30-27, on Thursday.

The Colts (7-3) trailed 17-6 at intermission but came out of the locker room in attack mode. Brown's first touchdown run on the opening drive of the second half was followed by a Devon Wylie fumble on the kick return. Two plays later, Luck scored on a quarterback keeper from 11 yards out to put Indianapolis in front.

Late in the fourth, Brown's 11-yard touchdown run gave Indy a 30-20 edge with 3:01 to play. Ryan Fitzpatrick came back and engineered a 4-play scoring drive, throwing deep for Nate Washington for a 42-yard pickup before hitting a wide open Delanie Walker out of the 2-minute warning from 19 yards out for a score.

The Titans (4-6) were out of timeouts, however, and had to settle for a Rob Bironas onsides kick attempt. Linebacker Pat Angerer, who led the Colts with eight tackles, fell on the kick to seal the win for Indy.

Indianapolis improved to 8-0 with Luck under center following a loss, and now holds a commanding three-game lead in the AFC South.
