NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Peyton Manning threw for 319 yards and two touchdowns, and the Indianapolis Colts snapped their three-game skid by beating the Tennessee Titans 30-28 on Thursday night to stay just a half-game back in the AFC South.
Manning broke out of the worst slump of his career with a crisp performance against a defense that now hasn't intercepted a pass in 14 straight quarters.
The Colts (7-6) haven't lost four straight since 2001 when their five-game slide prompted Jim Mora's famous rant about the playoffs
Tennessee (5-8) now has lost six straight and dropped 2½ games behind Jacksonville (7-5) in the AFC South with three to play. The Titans can blame themselves for mistakes that led to each of the Colts' first three touchdowns.
