The Colts are 0-13. We just all assumed that by Sunday evening they'd be 0-14, probabilities working the way they do, not to mention that the Titans are in the AFC wild-card hunt.

Well, through almost three quarters, Indy leads Tennessee 17-6 after cornerback Jacob Lacey returned a Matt Hasselbeck pass 32 years for and a touchdown to give the Colts the lead, 17-6.

It was the first interception by a Colts cornerback all season. Hasselbeck's pass was intended for running back Chris Johnson, who has reverted to worst-back-in-the-league form Sunday. As of this writing, he has 14 rushes for a whopping 20 yards.

If the Titans go down, so too in all likelihood will their playoff hopes. As for the Colts, a victory will possibly save Jim Caldwell's job (no way), avoid the ignominious distinction of being as bad as the 2008 Lions, all while guaranteeing their pole position in the race to Andrew Luck.
