    This week we head to Indy for this matchup between the Colts and their AFC South foes, the Tennessee Titans in what will be their 58th game playing against one another. Though the Colts are winning the all-time series 35-22, it’s the Titans that have the recent edge winning the previous five matchups and six of the last seven. With the entire division sitting at .500, the winner of this game will at least hold a share of first place. The loser is guaranteed to be in the basement, possibly alone. Buckle up, read the previews, and set your lineup for success.

    Main Storylines to Watch

    What will a Jonathan Taylor/Anthony Richardson backfield look like? It should be amazing. I’m just not sure if it’s this week. First of all, will Taylor even play? Maybe, maybe not. If he does play, how much? Will there be a pitch count? Then there’s this: the Titans own the fourth best run defense in the league in terms of total yards. They are bottom ten in total pass yards. See where I’m going here? Richardson is no slouch slinging the ball around the yard either.

    Are the Titans Derrick Henry or bust? Largely, yes. He’s the engine that makes this offense go. You could argue that he makes the defense go as well. When the Titans are rolling opponents on the ground, it allows them to control the game and keep the defense fresh, and boy do they need that. Though the Titans are a brick wall against the run, it’s easy to move the ball through the air on them for big plays. Henry should once again be the focal point of the offense to keep what’s been a fun, low-key solid Colts offense off the field.
