NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Did the Titans just turn this game?

Their 14-play, 80-yard, 7:45 touchdown drive is just what they hoped to do against the Colts and the two-point conversion call that had Kerry Collins play fake, spin, roll out and hit fullback Ahmard Hall made it a 14-14 game.

It's hard to take momentum from the Colts when they are going well.

And the Titans much maligned wide receivers made some big plays to convert third and longs -- a 23-yard catch by Justin McCareins and a 15-yarder by Brandon Jones.

But already, Pierre Garcon's responded with a 32-yard kickoff return.

The Titans always think they'll be able to exert defensive control at this stage of a game by winning the physical battle.

We're about to find out if they are as good at that as they think.
