11. Indianapolis Colts (8-4, Previous: 9)
The Colts made a splash on Sunday by benching Trent Richardson after their blockbuster trade in favor of Donald Brown, in hopes that the latter could spark their sputtering offense. It didn’t work. Brown did score the Colts’ only touchdown of the day in the final two minutes of the game, but it was Adam Vinatieri’s right foot that won the game over the Titans. Where Andrew Luck failed, the oldest player in the NFL succeeded, kicking a career-high five field goals, four of them from more than 40 yards (tying an NFL record). Indianapolis has the AFC South on lockdown, but will need to find the end zone if it wants to get anywhere in the postseason. (AP Photo)
