Titans vs. Colts 2013 final score: Late drive gives Indianapolis 22-14 win, firm control in the AFC South

The Colts waited until late in the fourth quarter to score their first touchdown, but it was enough to down the Titans and all but ensure a division title.

Clinging to a one-point lead, the Indianapolis Colts powered out an 11-play, 92-yard drive to score a decisive touchdown late in the fourth quarter and take firm control of the AFC South with a 22-14 win over the Tennessee Titans.

Beginning at their own eight-yard line, the Colts chewed up over six minutes of game clock as they drove downfield, capping the drive with four-yard touchdown run from Donald Brown with just two minutes remaining. Ryan Fitzpatrick's third interception of the day sealed the game on the ensuing Titans possession.

The Colts improve to 8-4 and have likely ensured a division crown, while the Titans fall to 5-7 and are now in danger of missing the postseason.

For the first time in over a month, the Colts were able to exit the first quarter with the lead. The team used a pair of Adam Vinatieri field goals to build an early 6-0 lead. It wouldn't last long, however, as Fitzpatrick led the Titans downfield on the first possession of the second quarter, going 4-of-5 and capping the drive with a one-yard touchdown run.

Trailing 12-7 in the third quarter, Fitzpatrick would record his second score when he hit Chris Johnson for a one-yard touchdown pass to regain the lead.

The Colts offense struggled to finish drives all day, settling for five field goals through the first three quarters. Vinatieri went 5-of-5 on his attempts, his fifth a 49-yarder to put Indianapolis up 15-14 late in the third quarter.
