The Colts did not do a horrible job defensively vs. their running game, and they moved the ball in pretty big chunks at times, on the ground and through the air. The ball bounced their way a lot, and eventually that's not going to happen in more than one game.
I like Jeff Fisher, love their defense/oline, but I don't think they are as good as their record. They're a contender, but they're not that far ahead of anyone else.
I'll sheep it up here.
If you look at the Steeler/Giant and Colt/Titan games from this weekend, I'd say that both the Giants and Titans were the beneficiary of several fortuitous bounces. I'm not making an excuse, I'm merely bringing it up to illustrate how close these games really are.
The Titans put the ball on the ground, what once, twice, I think? Colts got zero recoveries. Deflected INTs too. Who knows what happens if Harrison doesn't snap that one through the uprights. And, FWIW, I thought the Gints broke the plane on that goalline stand. IMO, Pittsburgh was fortunate that the call on the field was he didn't get in.
A bounce here. A call/non-call there (read: Kemo holding on the Nate TD that was brought back. I've seen the referees let much worse go uncalled. You could read Kemo's lips too. He kept saying, "I let 'em go. I let 'em go." Yes, that infers that he was holding, but it was so brief. IMO, DT did more jersey grabbing throughout the game.)
It's such a fine line.
But, that's football, I guess. It all evens out in the end, right?
