Titans keep Colts winless, win 27-10

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Matt Hasselbeck threw for 224 yards and a touchdown, and Nate Washington scored twice and the Tennessee Titans kept the Colts winless by beating Indianapolis 27-10 Sunday.

Rob Bironas kicked field goals of 51 and 50 yards, and Jason McCourty recovered a blocked punt in the end zone as the Titans (4-3) snapped a two-game skid.

They also sacked Curtis Painter twice and intercepted him twice, turning those turnovers into 14 points for their first win in this AFC South rivalry since Oct. 27, 2008.

The Colts (0-8) never really threatened to win their sixth straight in this matchup.

Already without Peyton Manning, who signed autographs in the end zone during warmups, the Colts trailed 20-0 by halftime coming off a 62-7 loss to the New Orleans Saints.

The Colts outgained Tennessee 399-311, but couldn't overcome 10 penalties for 66 yards.
