Tennessee 36, Indianapolis 22

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Marcus Mariota threw a tie-breaking, 53-yard touchdown pass to Tayvan Taylor with 5:29 left before the Tennessee Titans completed a 36-22 win over Indianapolis. Mariota was 23 of 32 for 306 yards, one touchdown and one interception as the 3-3 Titans ended their 11-game losing streak against the Colts. Derrick Henry finished with a career-high 131 yards on 19 carries, including a 72-yard TD run with 47 seconds left.

GREEN BAY, Wis. – The Green Bay Packers are bracing for the possibility of playing the rest of the season without quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Coach Mike McCarthy says Rodgers will have surgery on his broken right collarbone, and that his season could be over. The team has no immediate plans to bring in a new quarterback, which means Brett Hundley will be the starter and Joe Callahan will serve as the backup.
