STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Titans have lost three straight, six of last seven, and eight straight to Colts. ... Tennessee can lock up No. 1 overall draft pick by losing season finale. ... Mike Mularkey is 2-6 since taking over as interim coach and says there have been no discussions yet about his future in Tennessee. ... Rookie QB Marcus Mariota will miss second straight game with sprained right knee. ... Backup Zach Mettenberger is 0-9 as starter. ... Delanie Walker needs 6 yards receiving to become first tight end in Titans history with 1,000-yard season. Walker's 85 receptions are already franchise record for TEs. ... Colts need win, Texans loss and seven other games to break right way to make fourth straight playoff appearance. ... Starting QB Andrew Luck will miss seventh straight game with lacerated kidney and partially torn abdominal muscle. ... Backup Matt Hasselbeck is trying to come back from injured throwing shoulder, and third-stringer Charlie Whitehurst went on injured reserve Monday. If Hasselbeck doesn't play, Colts will probably go with former Bucs starter Josh Freeman or former Cardinal Ryan Lindley, who joined team Tuesday.... RB Frank Gore needs 36 yards to become 15th NFL player with 12,000 yards, and 109 yards to become fifth NFL player with nine 1,000-yard seasons and first Colts' 1,000-yard rusher since 2007. ... K Adam Vinatieri needs five points to extend NFL record of 100-point seasons to 18. Fantasy Tip: In potential offensive stalemate, Gore may be best bet. Last week, he had second-best game of season: 85 yards, two TDs. His best game, 86 yards, two TDs, came Week 3 against Titans.
