Adam Vinatieri tied a career high with five field goals and Donald Brown scored on a 4-yard touchdown run with 1:56 left Sunday, giving the Colts a 22-14 victory over Tennessee.
Indianapolis (8-4) now has a three-game lead in the AFC South and the tiebreaker after sweeping the season series. The Colts can wrap up their eighth division crown in 11 seasons with one win, one Titans loss or if either team ties.
Indy's offense struggled again, failing to get in the end zone until Brown's late plunge sealed it. Until then, the Colts relied on Vinatieri's reliable right foot.
He made four field goals in the first half and gave Indy the lead for good with a 49-yarder with 2:33 left in the third quarter. That erased the 14-12 lead Tennessee (5-7) took with a 1-yard touchdown pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick to Chris Johnson early in the half.
