    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky</em> <p>INDIANAPOLIS -- The Titans and Colts used just four of a possible 12 timeouts, threw only 14 clock-stopping incomplete passes and got flagged for only six penalties.</p> <p>Those factors -- and a desire by both for a quick game -- resulted in 23-0 Colts win that lasted 2 hours, 33 minutes, the fastest NFL game since 1996, according to Elias Sports Bureau.</p> <p>No teams had played faster since Nov. 3, 1996, when the Chargers beat the Colts, 26-19, also in Indianapolis, in 2 hours, 29 minutes.</p> <p>Previously, the fastest game this season was on Dec. 16, when Atlanta beat Tampa Bay, 13-10, in overtime at the Georgia Dome in 2 hours, 34 minutes.</p>
