Indianapolis, IN (Sports Network) - Adam Vinatieri kicked a pair of fourth- quarter field goals to lift the Indianapolis Colts to a 27-23 victory over the Tennessee Titans at Lucas Oil Stadium.
The Colts (9-4) rallied from a 13-point halftime deficit for their third straight victory to improve their playoff chances. Indianapolis has won seven of its last eight and is still within striking distance of first-place Houston in the AFC South. The 11-1 Texans play at New England on Monday night and face Indianapolis twice in the final three weeks of the season.
Andrew Luck had a subpar day, but still came away with a win. The rookie completed just 16-of-34 passes for 196 yards with a touchdown and a pair of interceptions for the Colts, who have won five straight at home and improved to 6-1 at Lucas Oil Stadium this season.
Vick Ballard ran for 94 yards on 19 carries in the victory, while Reggie Wayne caught six passes for 64 yards with a touchdown and moved into 10th place on the all-time receptions list.
Jake Locker threw for 262 yards on 22-of-35 passing with a touchdown and a pair of costly second-half interceptions in defeat. Tennessee (4-9) has dropped three in a row since its bye week and fell to 0-5 within the division.
