NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Andrew Luck threw for 160 yards and two touchdowns before sitting out the second half, and the Indianapolis Colts tuned up for the postseason by beating the Tennessee Titans 27-10 on Sunday.

The Colts (11-5) bounced back from their worst performance this season by nearly matching what they did offensively in the loss at Dallas by halftime.

They wound up outgaining the Titans 378-192 as the AFC South champs swept their division a second straight season for the first time in franchise history.

Indianapolis will host the loser of Cincinnati-Pittsburgh in a wild-card game barring a tie in that game Sunday night.

With their 10th straight loss and Tampa Bay’s loss to New Orleans, the Titans (2-14) finished their worst season since 1994 and likely will pick second overall in the draft.

This franchise hasn’t picked No. 1 overall since trading for the right in 1978 to pick Earl Campbell.
