Thursday Night Football Week 10

Week 10's Thursday night game is a showdown between AFC South rivals Indianapolis (5-3) and Tennessee (6-2). This is the first of their two annual meetings in 2020, and the winner takes over first place in the division.


The Indianapolis Colts started the season with a surprising loss to Jacksonville. Since then, they've played better football and only lost to playoff-contending teams. Their offense won't score a ton against good defenses, but their own defense might be the best in the league. With TY Hilton set to return against a struggling Tennessee pass defense, it could be a nice night for the Colts' passing game. Expect RB Johnathan Taylor to get plenty of touches as well.


The Titans have a tough task ahead of them. While the Colts offense isn't that threatening, their defense allows the fewest yards per game and 3rd fewest points per game to opponents. That being said, Derrick Henry is a totally different animal, and Ryan Tannehill has been playing great for an emerging passing game. Henry will get his yardage as he always does, but the best way to exploit this defense is through the air. A balanced game plan should help Tennessee.


The game can be seen on FOX at 8:20 PM ET.
