Over at Tallysight, 57% of the analysts are choosing the Colts to win the game, but 60% are siding with the Titans to cover the 3.5-point spread.

This should be a tightly contested matchup. While the Colts match up well with their strong run defense against Derrick Henry, their own offensive line issues will make this game close.

The Colts may also be without defensive tackle DeForest Buckner due to an elbow injury, and it was a disaster the last time he missed a game against the Titans.

This game will have both immediate and future implications within the division. If the Colts win and the Jacksonville Jaguars lose, they take sole possession of first place. If the Titans win and the Jaguars lose, Tennessee will be tied for the division lead.

Expect a physical and potentially even ugly matchup at Lucas Oil Stadium as both teams look to get back on track following slow starts to the season.
