Uffsides Week 13 preview: Titans vs. Colts

The Colts are a maddeningly uneven team that are nonetheless in the driver's seat for the AFC South crown. But an upset by the Titans -- already in good position for a Wild Card spot -- would put them just one game back of the division lead. Matt Ufford and the crew preview the game and make their picks.

Indianapolis has lost two of its last three games by an average margin of 29.5 points. What's wrong with the Colts? Head coach Chuck Pagano isn't really sure. The team can't run the ball effectively, and the offense is struggling without veteran receiver Reggie Wayne. Now they face a surprisingly tough test against the Tennessee Titans.

These sides met in Week 11, and the Colts were able to come away with a three point win. It was a scare for then-dominant Indianapolis, and foreshadowed some of the team's larger issues. Tennessee has adjusted to injury better than most teams in the NFL, and despite losing quarterback Jake Locker they remain compeditive.

This game has become a must-win for both teams. The Colts need to prove they're still the dominant team in the AFC South and retain their confidence, while the Titans look to hold onto their tenuous wild card spot.
