Indianapolis Colts go on 21-point second-half run to topple Tennessee Titans

Running back Nyheim Hines had two touchdowns as he celebrated his birthday in style.

THE INDIANAPOLIS COLTS mounted an impressive second-half comeback to beat the Tennessee Titans 34-17 and snatch top spot in their shared division last night.

The Titans were kings of the AFC South when they welcomed the Colts to Nashville on Thursday night and had a four-point lead at the half.

But the visitors exploded after the break with 21 unanswered points courtesy of impressive efforts from their quarterback and his receiving weapons.

Philip Rivers completed 29 of his 39 throws for 308 yards, a touchdown and managed to hit eight different receivers.

Running backs Jonathan Taylor and Nyheim Hines stepped up with seven catches and a touchdown between them, while Hines also rushed for his own score and had 70 yards on the ground.
