Online PR News – 05-November-2012 – staffordshire – Indy Gridiron presented the latest Colts News about the game where Colts Beat Titans on October 28, 2012. Andrew Luck who had a bit of a tumultuous rookie season so far looked like a seasoned vet as he battled against Chris Johnson and the Tennessee Titans, finishing with 297 yards and a throwing touchdown. He was also productive on the ground, taking off six different times for a total of 28 yards. What separated this game from the others was that it really showed his growth as a player and his execution on do-or-die downs, converting 6/12 third downs, and 1/1 on fourth down.
In overtime, Ballard capped the drive, taking a screen pass and going up the left side where the rookie got his feet knocked out from underneath him as the Titans tried to get him out of bounds. Ballard crossed the goal line upside down with his head hitting the pylon for the TD. Officials reviewed the play before ruling it a score. Though Andrew Luck needed a little longer than usual to pull out a win for the Indianapolis Colts, the rookie came through in overtime Sunday, connecting with Vick Ballard on a 16-yard touchdown pass 4:49 into overtime and the Colts beat the Tennessee Titans 19-13.
The Titans came in giving up more points than any team in the NFL, and they just couldn't make the stop to give their offense one last chance. They sacked Luck twice. Michael Griffin got an interception and also blocked a 37-yard field goal at the end of the first half, but it wasn't enough. The Titans pressured Luck repeatedly in their first shot at their division rival's new quarterback. Luck had a couple passes batted down but found open receivers time and again. The Colts now have beaten Tennessee in seven of eight overall and seven of the past 10 in Nashville. The Colts Beat Titans win boosted the Colts to 4-3, and gave Luck one more win than his predecessor, Peyton Manning , chalked up in his entire rookie season with Indianapolis.
