Titans Surge Past Colts 24-14 On Monday Night

Last updated on Tuesday, October 28, 2008

(NASHVILLE, TN) - The Tennessee Titans showed why they are the dominant team in the AFC South, scoring 25-straight points to pull away from the Indianapolis Colts 31-21 in Nashville.

The Colts led 14-6 on a pair of Peyton Manning to Dallas Clark touchdown passes before the Titans came alive in the third quarter when Lendale White scored on a one-yard run and Tennessee tied the game with a two-point conversion.

The Tennessee Titans capitalized on a pair of failed fourth-down attempts by the Indianapolis Colts to extend their lead in the AFC South to four games. Late in the third quarter, the Titans stopped Dominic Rhodes on a fourth-and-one play from the Indianapolis 49.

Tennessee capitalized with Rob Bironas' go-ahead 48-yard field goal that put the Titans up for good at 17-14. On the Colts' next possession, Peyton Manning failed to connect with Marvin Harrison on fourth and two from the Tennessee 34.

Touchdown runs by White and Chris Johnson capped a big fourth quarter for the Titans with Peyton Manning scoring on a one-yard sneak with 1:17 left to make the final score a little more respectable.

The Titans improve to 7-and-0 while the Colts drop to 3-and-4.
