Titans' late mistakes cost game, playoff control

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

The Tennessee Titans keep making mistakes at crucial times, and now they've lost control of their playoff destiny and possibly their last chance at a winning record.
    
A team that has scored 122 points in the fourth quarter this season couldn't score late, and a defense that had been so stingy couldn't get off the field when it mattered most as the Titans lost 22-14 to Indianapolis. Tennessee now has lost six of its last eight.
    
Coach Mike Munchak says the Titans are having growing pains.
    
Now the Titans (5-7) trail Baltimore and Miami, both 6-6, for the AFC's final playoff spot with four games left. They visit Denver on Sunday and a quarterback in Peyton Manning that Tennessee has struggled to beat for years.
