Against Colts, Titans can't remain susceptible to big pass plays

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Cleveland Browns wide receiver Travis Benjamin caught touchdown passes of 60 and 50 yards against the Titans. Tampa Bay Bucs tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins scored from 41 yards.

Big plays have hurt the Titans, and Tennessee and Houston are the only two teams in the NFL to give up three scoring passes of 25 yards.

Donte Moncrief has the Colts' one long scoring reception, a 26-yarder against the Jets on Monday night.

Indianapolis has not been the big-play team it can be as the offense has struggled during an 0-2 start.

Quarterback Andrew Luck is averaging just 5.73 yards per pass. That number was 7.73 last year and it’s 7.1 in his career.

As the Colts look to find themselves, they'll be looking at how the Browns and Bucs got behind Tennessee's secondary.

The Seferian-Jenkins TD didn’t mean much as the Titans were already assured of a blowout win. The two plays from Benjamin for Cleveland were back-breakers.

If the Titans are to upset the Colts, they need to contain a receiving group of T.Y. Hilton, Andre Johnson, Moncrief and Phillip Dorsett that has great big-play potential.
