Titans close to limiting Derrick Henry’s snaps vs. Colts

4-things-texans-fans-thankful-thanksgiving

Titans defensive back Dane Cruikshank basically came in untouched for the block, with the ball bouncing to cornerback Tye Smith, who scooped it up and returned it 63 yards for a touchdown.

The Titans are just 3-13 against the spread in their last 16 games versus the Colts and are 1-7 against the number in their last eight games played at Lucas Oil Stadium. For the Tennessee Titans, it's their star running back Derrick Henry, who showed up on Wednesday's injury report with a hamstring injury.

The Indianapolis Colts will once again be without T.Y. Hilton.

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett has been efficient since taking the reins in the wake of Andrew Luck's retirement, but he could be in for a hard game this week against the Tennessee Titans. Tennessee overcame two first-quarter turnovers, five first-half sacks and a double-digit deficit to come back and win by 14 points - those points all coming in the fourth quarter.

The Colts are a flawless 7-0 against the spread in their last seven matchups versus AFC South opponents and are 40-19 against the spread in their last 59 games coming off a loss.

No one wants to call out the legendary Adam Vinatieri, so I'll just pin this loss on the Colts' special teams unit in general.

Asked for his view on allowing shorts, Tiger Woods said: 'I would love it. "A lot of players were concerned about it", he said in a statement.

" Ya-Sin suffered an ankle injury in the third quarter of the Colts' Week 11 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars; after initially being labeled questionable to return, he was eventually downgraded to out for the rest of the contest, and would then miss his first game of the season last Thursday night against the Houston Texans". It was the second blocked field goal of the game and No. 5 on the season for Tennessee.

Henry needs just nine yards to accomplish his second-straight 1,000-yard season and 69 to pass his career-high.

You have to love that not one, but three Titans got into the backfield on this play.

Vinatieri missed three kicks, two of them being blocked. Moments later, Titans' quarterback Ryan Tannehill connected with receiver Kalif Raymond on a 40-yard touchdown pass, all but ending the Colts' hopes at a comeback.

Indy also lost a fumble deep in Tennessee territory with two minutes left when the Titans won a challenge.
