Indy needs no rally against Titans to win 21st straight regular-season game
INDIANAPOLIS -- Peyton Manning keeps finding new winning formulas, and the Colts keep making history.Instead of another patented comeback or impressive air show, Manning opened December by playing keepaway from Tennessee and leading the Colts to a 27-17 victory for their record-tying 21st consecutive regular-season win.
The Colts and Saints are each four games away from finishing the NFL regular season undefeated, the latest in a season the NFL has ever had two teams which haven't lost.
