 (all times Eastern):9:50 p.m.The Indianapolis Colts lead the Tennessee Titans 17-10 at halftime in the race for the AFC’s final playoff spot.Andrew Luck has thrown for 196 yards and two touchdowns compared to Blaine Gabbert who has 73 yards passing for the Titans. The Colts are outgaining Tennessee 253-97 in total offense.Adam Vinatieri JK Scott Jersey , the NFL’s oldest active player who just turned 46 on Friday, kicked a 53-yard field goal with 39 seconds left in the first half to give the Colts a 17-7 lead.Vinatieri is 4 of 6 from 50 yards or longer this season.Gabbert drove the Titans 55 yards for a 38-yard field goal by Ryan Succop as the first half ended to trim the Colts’ lead.The Colts were cruising up 14-0 when the Titans got just enough pressure on Luck for linebacker Jayon Brown to pick off a pass and return it 22 yards for a touchdown.Brown also stripped Marlon Mack of the ball with the Colts inside the Tennessee 20.— Teresa M. Walker reporting from Nashville, Tennessee. Earlier this offseason, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers called running back Aaron Jones “most athletic Brett Favre Color Rush Jersey , fast guy with a little bit of a belly” but Jones is bringing less of a belly with him to work this year.Jones said he’s cut his body fat in half while maintaining the same weight by cleaning up his diet. Jones was “big into candy,” but stopped eating it and now feels “stronger in the legs” than he did in his first two seasons.The boost in strength comes as Jones prepares for his first season in head coach Matt LaFleur’s offense. Jones believes the team will “rely on the run” more than they did while dropping back to pass over 71 percent of the time last year and thinks he’s a good fit for what LaFleur wants to do.“I feel like I am,” Jones said, via “We’ve run outside zone in previous years here , so that’s what we’re running and I feel good in this scheme. It’s a lot of things I’ve seen before, so it’s nothing new to me. We take a look on film and see how it’s worked in other systems, so it just gets me very excited.”Jones has averaged 5.5 yards per carry since entering the NFL, but has averaged just under nine carries per game. If he’s right about the fit Bart Starr Jersey , the latter number should be going up and similar effectiveness would be a welcome boost to the offense.
