Questions for TEN/IND

Tennessee at Indianapolis 1:00 p.m.

The Titans were horrific against the Cowboys last week.  I'd expect some improvement if only because the Colts do not have as good a defense as the Cowboys and are not as rested.

The biggest question about the Titans is the play of QB Vince Young.  Will he show improvement over last week's performance?

Word has it that rookie RB LenDale White is ready to step in.  How does he do?  And regardless of that, he should be picked-up as new starting RBs are a limited quantity and always merit attention.

For the first four games of the season, the question surrounding the Colts has been their RBBC and who will emerge as the full-time back.  Barring injury, I think this question has been resolved - it will be a permanent RBBC.

Lost in that focus is the fact that neither WR Marvin Harrison nor WR Reggie Wayne has caught a TD pass this season.   Harrison is first in receiving yardage and Wayne is 5th.

Just as the percentages say the Packers will get their first rushing TD this week and make Morency a good gamble, the percentages say Harrison and Wayne will get a TD reception this week.

Nor is it too late in the season for either of them to end up near the top in TDs receptions.  The leaders only have three.
