INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck threw for a season-high 393 yards and four touchdowns, and Reggie Wayne scored for the first time this season as the Colts beat division rival Tennessee 41-17 Sunday at Lucas Oil Stadium.

Tennessee (1-3) has lost three straight since an impressive season-opening win over Kansas City.

"I'm angry," Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said. "I'm embarrassed. I'm embarrassed because we didn't represent ourselves better than this.

"We're just at a point right now where we have to make the plays," Whisenhunt continued. "We shot ourselves in the foot, even in the last couple of games we've done that. Against a team like Indianapolis, you're not going to win the game if you do that type of stuff."

Filling in for an injured Jake Locker, veteran backup Charlie Whitehurst was 12-for-23 for 177 yards and 1 TD. He also led the Titans on the ground with 5 carries for 40 yards.

Tight end Delanie Walker led the Titans with 5 receptions for 84 yards and 1 TD.

Luck was 29-of-41 passing, while Wayne had seven catches for a season-best 119 yards and scored on a spectacular spinning 28-yard catch.

Indy led 14-0 after one and made it 20-3 with two Adam Vinatieri field goals. The Titans didn't reach the end zone until Whitehurst threw a 7-yard TD pass to Walker with 13 seconds left in the half to make it 20-10. Tennessee didn't score again until Bishop Sankey's 2-yard run with 35 seconds left in the third quarter cut the deficit to 34-17.

"I can't even put my finger on that," receiver Kendall Wright said about Tennessee's three consecutive losses. "... We have to put some wins up there and we have to stop all of the little things that's killing us."
