DeMarco Murray had his worst rushing performance in a Titans uniform for the second consecutive week, as Tennessee rallied for a 20-16 victory against the Colts on Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium. Murray finished with nine rushing yards on 12 carries and scored the go-ahead touchdown from the 1-yard line with about six minutes to play. “You guys probably could have walked in on that,” Murray said to reporters in the postgame locker room, acknowledging his struggles. Not the same player as last year Murray, 29, hasn’t been the same player as he was last season, when he led the AFC in rushing yards and was named to his third Pro Bowl. Murray has 452 rushing yards and five touchdowns on 129 carries this season. He rushed for just 10 yards on eight carries in the Titans’ previous game, a 40-17 loss to the Steelers in Pittsburgh. But Murray said he’s not concerned about his stats. “Not at all,” Murray said. “I’ve done a lot of great individual things in my career, playing in this league, and (winning), that’s why we all play, why we coach. That’s all I’m worried about. I’m not worried about stats. Obviously, you want to play better and obviously you’ve got pride about yourself and things of that nature, but, hey, most importantly, we got the win. We’ll all watch film and … we’ll make corrections and that’s it.” The Titans escaped from Indianapolis with a share of first place in the AFC South in large part because they turned to second-year pro Derrick Henry down the stretch. The Titans had three rushing yards on 13 carries through three quarters.
