Colts Favored To Get First Win Over AFC South Rival Titans In Week 3

After an impression showing in the 2014 NFL season, the Indianapolis Colts came into the 2015 campaign with high hopes of being a legitimate Super Bowl title contender once again. The Colts were able to reach the AFC Championship Game last year, but fell short against the eventual Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.

Unfortunately, Andrew Luck and company have really struggled right out of the gate. Indianapolis has lost the first two games of the season and are desperately seeking their first win of the year. That first win may very well come in Week 3 with the Colts set to do battle with the division rival Tennessee Titans on the road.

Although the Titans have been better than expected with rookie quarterback Marcus Mariota under center, Indianapolis is favored coming into this matchup between AFC South rivals. According to, the Colts are sporting a -3.5 point spread against the Titans.

The real question coming into this divisional matchup will be whether Luck can get back on track. The superstar quarterback really hasn’t been playing the Pro Bowl-caliber football we’re all accustomed to seeing from the Stanford product.

In the past two games, Luck has thrown five interceptions to go along with only three touchdown passes. That’s very uncharacteristic of the face of the Colts franchise who threw only 16 interceptions all of last season. Luck’s completion percentage is also an eyesore with the 26-year-old completing only 54 percent of his passes so far this season.

Despite the Colts struggling to get back on track as one of the best teams in the AFC, the Week 3 showdown with the Titans could be the breakout game need for Luck and company. Tennessee will be a tougher opponent for Indianapolis than in years past, but the Colts should still come out on top while covering the -3.5 point spread.
