In a season of disappointments that has been the Tennessee Titans 2015 campaign, closing the year with a win, especially against the perenial powers of the AFC South would be a great momentum builder for a young team looking for a major improvement next season.
Enter the Indianapolis Colts, who have been the gold standard of this division since ints inception. However, this season the Colts have been beset with injuries at the quarterback position that has them entering Sunday's season finale at Lucas Oil Stadium without star quarterback Andrew Luck and backups Matt Hasselbeck and Charlie Whitehurst, who are both out with injuries.
Neither player has had much time with the Colts to have learned much of their playbook and the offense should be very limited in what they can do, meaning the Titans should have a chance to win the game if they can find some offense of their own.
Zach Mettenberger will likely start again for the Titans, and for Mettenberger, getting his first win in the NFL after nine losses would be a big confidence boost for himself and the team.
Mettenberger will need some help if he is to get the win, meaning the offensive line must protect him and allow both the running game with David Cobb and the passing game with Delanie Walker and Dorial Green-Beckham to make plays.
It will be tough to get a win against a team that still holds playoff hopes, no matter how slime on their home field in the final regular season game of the year.
