NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Sept. 28, 2015) — It’s hard to say exactly how they did it, but the important thing is that the Indianapolis Colts managed to notch their first victory of the season against the Tennessee Titans in an AFC South clash.

The Colts started fast, building a 14-point lead after a touchdown run from Frank Gore and an interception that safety Dwight Lowery returned for a score. After that, the Titans took control of the game, intercepting Andrew Luck twice and building a 27-14 lead.

Things looked decidedly grim for the Colts, who got the ball at their own two-yard line trailing by 13 points early in the fourth quarter. Luck directed a 98-play drive that culminated in a 35-yard touchdown pass to Phillip Dorsett. On the Titans’ next drive, Lowery notched his second interception. Luck hit Donte Moncrief for an 11-yard TD strike. The Colts added a late touchdown from Frank Gore to take a 35-27 lead.

The Titans weren’t done yet. Rookie Marcus Mariota engineered a drive that resulted in a touchdown from Jalston Fowler. The two-point conversion failed, the Titans’ onside kick went out of bounds and the Colts ran out the clock.
