Tennessee Titans Inside Slant 2008-10-29
The Tennessee Titans can't hide anymore.


Their low profile, one that came even with a 6-0 start, is completely gone after their 31-21 shellacking of the Indianapolis Colts on Monday Night Football.

The victory not only put the Titans in the national conscious as they continue as the NFL's lone unbeaten team, but also all but handed Tennessee its first AFC South crown since 2002.

Barring a complete collapse, the Titans should clinch the division title with ease as they now own a four-game lead, plus a victory over each of their division rivals. Houston, Jacksonville and now Indianapolis all stand 3-4, and watching the Titans disappear over the horizon.

"The Colts are not the team to beat anymore. I think we made a statement within the division, and I think we have made a statement all year with our play. The Colts were the team to beat, and I think now, the Titans are the team to beat," linebacker Keith Bulluck proclaimed after the game.

The changing of the guard in the AFC South became all but complete during a stretch of just under 15 minutes in the second half Monday night, as Tennessee quickly turned a 14-6 deficit into a desicive victory by scoring 25 consecutive points.

The Titans did it unconventional ways both on offense and defense. The Colts were determined to bottle up Tennessee's running game, holding the Titans to just 88 yards and keeping Chris Johnson to just 77 yards on the ground, even using an extra linebacker set inviting Kerry Collins to try and beat them through the air.

And beat them he did, completing 24 of 37 passes for 193 yards. Collins had neither an interception nor a sack in the game, as Tennessee methodically moved downfield utilizing a short passing game that had a long gain of just 23 yards on the night.

Defensively, the Titans did not record a single sack, but came up big at the right time, stopping Indy twice on fourth downs in the final quarter and picking off Peyton Manning twice, both times by safety Chris Hope.
