INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Indianapolis tied the NFL record for longest winning streak Sunday, beating Tennessee 27-17 for their 21st consecutive regular-season victory.
The only other team to win that many in a row: New England from 2006-08. The Colts (12-0) can break the record next week at home against Denver.
Peyton Manning threw one TD pass, Joseph Addai ran for two scores and the Colts spent the second half protecting the lead against the Titans (5-7). It was the first time in six games Indy didn't need a fourth-quarter comeback to win.
Tennessee's Chris Johnson ran 27 times for 113 yards, his seventh straight 100-yard game, but failed to become the first player in league history to top 125 yards rushing in seven straight.
