    Posted by's Paul Kuharsky Courtesy of ESPN Stats & Analysis, I got some excellent material that fleshes out Kerry Collins' performance in the Titans' Monday night win over the Colts.

    The Titans rushed for a team-record 332 yards a week ago in Kansas City, but the Colts held the Titans to only 88 yards on 31 carries. Kerry Collins was forced to come up big, and he did not disappoint. Collins set a season-high in completions by focusing on the intermediate passing game:

Collins split his targets evenly between the skill positions, taking what was made available.
