NFL Picks And Predictions Week 8: Colts Vs. Titans

The Indianapolis Colts are still looking for their first win of the season. Few experts foresee that happening this week against the Tennessee Titans.

Once, the Indianapolis Colts just looked lost and hopeless without all-world quarterback Peyton Manning. Now, they are spiraling into complete dysfunctionality. Players are even lashing out at bloggers, SB Nation bloggers. Can they right the ship against the Tennessee Titans this week?

Maybe. The Titans are coming off their own blowout loss last week. They scored a single touchdown in a 41-7 loss to the Texans. Running back Chris Johnson has been a lightening rod for criticism, having a poor season after signing a very lucrative contract in a league where running backs are increasingly seen as plug and play options for teams. 

Mike Tanier at the New York Times picks the Titans.

When the Colts need their pride challenged, they need only load up the team chairman Jim Irsay's Twitter feed, wade through all of the old Jackson Browne lyrics, and find something suitably motivational/loopy: "We have 2turn n2that junkyard animal no creature EVER wants 2face,jaws of furry with nothin2lose!" Irsay will keep that junkyard animal handy in case Peyton Manning tries to interfere with the team's plan to draft Andrew Luck.
