The Tennessee Titans are looking for their sixth win on the year as they traveled to Indianapolis on Sunday to take on the inconsistent Colts.

All things considered, even with the loss of QB Jake Locker, the Titans have a credible backup in Ryan Fitzpatrick that has taken the reins of the offense, and has done so rather nicely.

He just has to be more careful about protecting his receivers over the middle, like he didn’t do with tight end Delanie Walker in the first half.

At the end of the first quarter, Fitzpatrick found the versatile Walker over the middle on a quick slant for a completion. However, there were two Colts waiting to immediately take Walker out as hard as they could, which they indeed ended up doing:

You have to have the awareness in the situation to probably not make that throw, but again, it’s hard for a QB to tell the future.

Unfortunately, the play ended in the fumble which was recovered by the Colts.
