Colts Shutout Titans, Will Face Chargers In Playoffs

Last updated on Monday, December 29, 2008

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indianapolis Colts wrapped up the regular season with a 23-0 shutout of the Tennessee Titans at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Both teams had already locked their seeds for this weekend's AFC playoffs and played reserves for much of the contest.

The Titans are the number-one seed in the AFC and finish the regular season at 13-and-3. They will host a divisional playoff game in Nashville on January 10th.

The Colts record their first shutout since 1997 as they head to the playoffs riding a nine-game winning streak. The Colts are the number-five seed in the AFC and open the playoffs Saturday night in San Diego when they face the Chargers.

Several Colts reached milestones during Sunday's win over the Titans. Marvin Harrison passed Chris Carter for second place in career receptions, leaving the game after picking up career reception number 1,102.

Peyton manning reached 4,000 yards passing for the ninth time in his eleven-year career on his 55-yard touchdown pass to Joseph Addai. Manning extends his own NFL record.

Dallas Clark caught six passes for 59 yards, finishing the regular season with 848 receiving yards to surpass John Mackey's single-season record for yards by a tight end set in 1966.

Adam Vinatieri's third field goal gave him 102 points for the season, extending his streak of scoring 100 or more points to 13 years.
