    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Colts were in command at LP Field.

    The Titans recovered, forced the issue and outlasted them.

    Tennessee is now 7-0 after an impressive 31-21 win over Indianapolis.

    I have not been downstairs yet, but I know them well enough to guess at one of the postgame themes for the Titans, the NFL's lone remaining undefeated team: "Take that. You thought we weren't for real, that this might be a fluke. There's your fluke."

    Tennessee was down 14-6. The Titans got two fourth-down stops in the second half and their first four possessions after halftime went: touchdown with a two-point conversion, field goal, touchdown, touchdown.

    That's Kerry Collins -- who now has to qualify as one of the NFL's best stories -- outdueling Peyton Manning. That's the Titans holding Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison to four catches for 41 yards. That's linebacker David Thornton, once a Colt, lined up as the deep man in the Titans' end-of-game victory formation.

    That's Tennessee with a 4 1/2 game lead over its three AFC South foes as Indianapolis, Jacksonville and Houston are all 3-4 and have all lost to the Titans.
