Indianapolis got 3 passing strikes from Andrew Luck en route to a 34-26 victory over Tennessee on Sunday in Week 7 action at Nissan Stadium.

Indianapolis won and also put money in the pockets of their supporters by covering the +3.5-point spread as underdogs. Totals bettors, meanwhile, saw the game go OVER the closing number of 48.0.

Andrew Luck completed 27 of 39 pass attempts for 353 yards and 3 TDs for the Colts in the win.

DeMarco Murray rushed for 107 yards for Tennessee, while Marcus Mariota added 14 yards. Marcus Mariota threw for 232 yards for the Titans, while receivers Delanie Walker and Tajae Sharpe had 84 and 59 yards respectively.

Tennessee lost the time of possession battle 32:30-27:30, leaving their defense on the field more than they wanted.

Next game, Indianapolis takes its act home to face Kansas City looking for another win. For Tennessee, they head home to face Jacksonville.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Andrew Luck said the feeling of a winning locker room in the moments after a game like Sunday’s is almost addicting.

Consider the Indianapolis Colts’ fix for victory satisfied.

Scoring a pair of touchdowns in an eight-second span late in the fourth quarter, Indianapolis pulled out a potential season-saver, beating the Tennessee Titans 34-26 Sunday in Nissan Stadium.

After blowing a two-touchdown lead last week in an overtime loss at Houston, the Colts faced the possibility of falling three games behind the AFC South leading-Texans by Week 7’s end. Instead, they improved to 3-4, knocked Tennessee down to 3-4 and could draw within a game of Houston if it loses Monday night in Denver.

“You’d be hard-pressed to find a more joyful spot in the world,” Luck said of Indianapolis’ locker room. “We still have a lot of things to clean up, but to find a way to finish off that game the way we did is a good feeling.”

Trailing 23-20 after Titans kicker Ryan Succop converted a 48-yard field goal with 6:02 remaining in the game, the Colts drove 70 yards in 12 plays to regain the lead for good. Luck polished off the drive with his third touchdown pass, a 7-yarder to Jack Doyle at the 1:55 mark.

Doyle, who became the team’s top tight end with the absence of Dwayne Allen, caught nine passes for 78 yards.

“I’m always looking for Jack Doyle,” Luck said. “He’s the best. Obviously, with Dwayne down, he’s getting more opportunities now.”

Tennessee’s bid to deny Luck the 17th game-winning touchdown drive of his career lasted one play after the kickoff. T.Y. McGill strip-sacked Marcus Mariota and Robert Mathis scooped up the ball, rumbling 14 yards for the clinching score.

It was the low point in an uneven day for Mariota, who was 22 of 37 for 232 yards and two touchdown passes but also missed a spate of open receivers before the killing fumble.

“That’s on me,” Mariota said. “We had guys getting open and I wasn’t able to make the throws.”

Succop’s 44-yard field goal with 43 seconds remaining brought the Titans within a score, but his onside kick bounced out of bounds to end their longshot hopes at a dramatic rally.

It was the 10th straight win by Indianapolis in this lopsided division rivalry, as well as their 15th in its last 16 meetings. Tennessee’s only victory in that span was in October 2011 when the Colts were going 2-14 and earning the right to draft Luck.

In upping his personal record against the Titans to 9-0, Luck strafed them for 353 yards on 27-of-39 accuracy despite the absence of three offensive starters. Doyle (9 catches, 78 yards) and T.Y. Hilton (7 catches, 133 yards), who was slowed in practice during the week by a hip injury, did most of the damage as Tennessee couldn’t find a defensive scheme to keep either one in check.

“You look at the games, there’s nothing magical, nothing crazy,” Titans cornerback Jason McCourty said. “We’re just not closing them out. We’re not scoring enough points.”

Tennessee initiated scoring less than six minutes into the game on a trick play, Mariota finding tackle Taylor Lewan for a 10-yard touchdown pass.

Indianapolis responded with 17 straight points. Luck hit Frank Gore with a 3-yard scoring strike, followed by a 37-yard connection with Hilton with 10:16 left in the half and a 28-yard field goal by Adam Vinatieri at the 7:06 mark of the second quarter.

DeMarco Murray, who rushed 25 times for 107 yards, broke the goal line’s plane on a 1-yard plunge with 34 seconds remaining in the half to pull the Titans within 17-13 at halftime.

Vinatieri made history with 3:46 left in the third quarter, converting a 33-yard field goal to set an NFL record with 43 consecutive makes.

Tennessee tied the score with 12:39 remaining in the game on Mariota’s 7-yard touchdown pass to Delanie Walker, then took the lead and could have experienced its first three-game winning streak in five years.

Instead, in a familiar ending, Luck played the role of hero while breathing life into the Colts’ season.

“I thought the coaches laid out an inventive, aggressive game plan for us,” Luck said. “We managed to make enough plays at the end, and we cut down on some mistakes offensively.”
