Research Notes

  • Since Trent Richardson joined the Colts in Week 3, Donald Brown has averaged 6.1 yards per carry compared with Richardson's 2.8. During that span, Andre Ellington (7.4 yards per carry) is the only running back averaging more yards per carry than Brown (min. 25 rushes).- Since the Richardson trade entering Week 3, the only running back to average more yards after contact per carry than Donald Brown's 2.4 is Adrian Peterson (2.5).- Brown rushed 10 times for 51 yards in the second half, including both of his touchdowns. Brown's second-half carries and yards are both season highs.

  • In the first 7 weeks this season, before Reggie Wayne's torn ACL, Andrew Luck's average pass traveled 9.4 yards downfield, seventh-longest among qualified quarterbacks. In his last 3 games, Luck's average pass traveled 7.0 yards downfield, tied for 24th in the league since Week 8.- Luck averaged 6.0 air yards per attempt Thursday night, the second-lowest rate of his career. The Colts are 5-1 in Luck's career when his average pass travels 7.7 yards or less downfield.- Luck completed 6-of-7 passes for 91 yards on play action. Last week, Luck tied a career-low with 1 play-action completion. The Colts are 7-0 when Luck completes at least 6 play-action passes in his career.- Coby Fleener was targeted 10 times on Thursday, resulting in career highs in catches (8) and yards (107). Five of Fleener's 8 receptions resulted in Colts' first downs. Fleener has been targeted 8.3 times per game since Reggie Wayne's injury, after he averaged 4.6 targets in the first 7 games with Wayne.

  • Chris Johnson rushed for 80 yards in the first half, including 2 touchdowns which tied a career high in a game. In the second half, Johnson was held to 6 yards on 4 carries. When Johnson rushes for fewer than 10 yards in the second half, the Titans are 3-12.

  • - According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Andrew Luck is only the third quarterback since the merger not to lose back-to-back games in his first 26 starts.Most Starts By QB Before Losing Consecutive Starts, Since Merger 1st Start Dan Marino 33 1983 Kordell Stewart 28 1995 Andrew Luck 26 2012>>Source: Elias Sports Bureau- Since 2012, Andrew Luck has 5 scrambles for touchdowns, tied with Christian Ponder for most in the league.- Ryan Fitzpatrick completed a career-high 79 percent of his passes Thursday night. When Fitzpatrick has completed 70 percent or more of his passes, his teams are 3-4.- Delanie Walker set career highs in targets (10), receptions (10) and yards (91). Since 2006, the only tight ends to be targeted at least 10 times in a game and catch all of their targets are Jimmy Graham (Week 5 2013), Jason Witten (Week 4 2012 and Week 12 2010) and Kellen Winslow (Week 12 2007).- Since Week 2, Kendall Wright is the only receiver to record at least 54 receiving yards in each game.

  • The Colts ran the ball just 8 times in the 1st half and fell behind by 11, but in the 2nd half, they kept it on the ground to fuel the comeback.

  • Chris Johnson got the Titans off to a hot start with 2 first-quarter rushing touchdowns, helping Tennessee reach the century mark in rushing by halftime. The Colts turned the tables in the second-half with just shy of 100 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground. Indy averaged 43.5 rushing yards in their previous 2 games, with no touchdowns.

  • Andrew Luck has been as effective at rushing for TDs since entering the NFL as the top running quarterbacks in the league, Colin Kaepernick and Cam Newton.

  • Chris Johnson's 30-yd Rush TD was the 16th 30-yd TD run of his career, most in the league since he joined the NFL in 2008.
