NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTHR) — The Colts battled back against the Titans with a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter to secure a 19 - 17 win in Nashville.

The Colts scored first and worked their way to a 13 - 7 halftime lead but fell behind to Tennessee going into the fourth quarter.

Indianapolis marched down the field in four plays, including a 55-yard run from Jordan Wilkins to pull ahead for the game winning score.

The Colts defense was led by Darius Leonard with six tackles, including one sack.

"We needed this, especially after starting the season 0-1," Leonard told Dave Calabro after the game. "If we believe in the coaching and we don't make simple mistakes, we can be a very good defense."

Watch the full interview with Darius, including his thoughts on kicker Adam Vinatieri's struggles in the video.

The Colts will play their first home game of the season when they host Atlanta on September 22, 2019.
