INDIANAPOLIS -- The Tennessee Titans thought they finally had the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.Their ground game was chugging along, Marcus Mariota was playing the best football of his short career, the defense had just shut down Aaron Rodgers & Co. and they were about to face a team that had been struggling.Somehow, they still couldnt exorcise The Streak, and now the Titans are heading home looking for answers again.It hurts deeply inside, especially for me personally, having to lose to (Andrew) Luck again, defensive tackle Jurrell Casey said after the 24-17 loss. Like I always talk about, going back to my college days (at Southern California), it is time for me to get over the hump and beat this dude.Luck improved to 9-0 all-time against the Titans (5-6), who have lost 11 straight in the series.But as discouraging as the numbers look, Tennessee still has plenty at stake. The Titans are a half game behind Indy (5-5) in the AFC South chase and two games behind division-leading Houston (6-3). So playoff visions still exist -- if the Titans can rebound from another demoralizing loss to Indy.You cant come into their place and spot them 21 points, coach Mike Mularkey said. We did and we had a chance to come back in the second half and the way our guys came back, I give them a lot of credit. But we cant do that against teams in this stadium.Or any stadium if theyre going to be playing after New Years Day.Tennessee was undone in this one by a mish-mash of penalties, blown coverages and an ineffective offense that got within 21-17 in the fourth quarter despite never really being in sync.Now, its back to the drawing board before heading to Chicago next week.Stay positive, dont get too frustrated, dont do anything dumb and dont listen to the outside, cornerback Perrish Cox said after letting a seemingly sure interception slip through his fingers and into the hands of receiver T.Y. Hilton for a touchdown. We know what we have, and we know we can play with every team in this league.They just have to prove it.Some other things we learned Sunday:NOT SO AUTOMATICColts kicker Adam Vinatieri is human. The oldest player in the league at age 43 missed his first field goal attempt in 14 months when a 42-yarder sailed wide right. It ended Vinatieris NFL record streak of 44 in a row but he atoned by making a 49-yarder in the fourth quarter for the final points of the game. The ball was flying good for a long time, Vinatieri said. I had a little hiccup right there, and I guess were at one in a row now.GROUNDING MURRAYDeMarco Murray had been on quite a run lately until Sunday when the Colts limited him to 21 carries for 70 yards. The Titans running back did reach the 1,000-yard mark for the third time. He also caught a 3-yard TD pass from Mariota. But his longest run was eight yards and his franchise-record tying streak of five consecutive games with a rushing score ended and he was stopped for no gain on fourth-and-1 from the Colts 19-yard line with 2:42 left.TRICKY COLTSIndy dug deep into its playbook against Tennessee. Three times on the first two series, they lined up in the wildcat formation with Andrew Luck lining up at receiver. The third time, Frank Gore took the snap, ran left, flipped the ball to Luck and then got it right back for a 49-yard pass play because he was uncovered. The Titans werent as fortunate Their fake punt on fourth-and-2 from their own 43 went for a 2-yard loss.SURGING MARIOTAMariota continues to impress, throwing two more touchdown passes on a day he did not turn the ball over. Mariota wound up 25 of 38 for 290 yards, ran five times for 29 yards and broke Warren Moons franchise record with his seventh consecutive multi-touchdown game. Continue to play that well, and the Titans will have their chances.---For more NFL coverage: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Rougned Odor Jersey .

Its always been our mindset; obviously we hope the MRIs come back positive with J.R.s injury, so its next man up and guys have to be able to fulfill that.Smith injured his left knee in the first quarter after landing on a jump shot and hobbled to the dressing room in considerable pain. He did not return, and the Cavaliers said X-rays taken at the arena were negative and that the guard would return to Cleveland on Tuesday for further examination.Coach Tyronn Lue said he was not sure on what it is, with regards to the precise nature of Smiths knee injury.Kevin Love had 28 points and 14 rebounds for his team-leading 13th double-double of the season and his third straight against the Raptors. Kyrie Irving added 24 points, his career-high 10th straight game with at least 20. Canadian Tristan Thompson chipped in with a season high-equaling 14 rebounds.DeMar DeRozan had 31 points and Kyle Lowry added 24 for Toronto, which had its six-game winning streak snapped.For Irving, winning the season series, and gaining the tiebreaker, over Toronto is something to celebrate, particularly when it also ended the Cavs skid.We know we are going to get their best shot all the time, he said. We compete at a high level against one another, so its great to come here or them come to Cleveland. It always comes down to basically the last two or three minutes.Mondays game was no different. Cleveland seized control of the game in the third quarter with a 23-11 run, turning a one-point halftime edge into a 13-point lead on Loves sixth 3-pointer of the game with 3:35 to play in the quarter. The Cavs eventually took a 90-81 advantage into the fourth.A turnaround jump shot from DeRozan with 24 secondss remaining closed the gap to five, and he followed that up with a 3-pointer 10 seconds later that looked to put the result in doubt, but after review he was ruled out of bounds.dddddddddddd Love then made a pair of free throws.They know how to win, DeRozan said. Throughout the whole game they understand when they have to turn it up on both ends, so with that you cant put yourself in a hole deeper than what you are already in, especially against this team. You know they are the champions.TIP-INSCavaliers: F Mike Dunleavy returned after missing the last two games with concussion-like symptoms. ...

Its always a tough game when we play these guys.GRITTED TEETHAfter being elbowed in the mouth by Love going for a rebound with 5:22 to play in the first quarter, Lowry headed to the dressing room to be examined by a dentist. He didnt lose any teeth and returned to the court after receiving a shot of Novocain, according to the team.PAYING TRIBUTEAs part of the third annual Giants of Africa night, an event conceived by Toronto president Masai Ujiri to honor the legacy of late South African president Nelson Mandela, the Raptors wore specially designed blue warm-up T-shirts with 1 and Mandela on the back.
