INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indianapolis Colts got back to their power-running ways and it couldn't have come at a better time.
For two straight games, the Colts (7-3) couldn't find a way to move the ball on the ground, but rushed for 137 yards and rallied in second half of Thursday's 30-27 win at Tennessee. It gave the Colts (7-3) a three-game lead in the AFC South, a sweep of their three division road games and a shot at their first division title of the post-Peyton Manning era.
Donald Brown ran for 80-yards, including a fourth quarter drive capped off with an 11-yard TD run to put the Colts ahead, 30-20.
The Colts have an extended week - a stretch of 10 days before playing at the Arizona Cardinals on Nov. 24.
