INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indianapolis Colts aren't big on talking about a perfect season so the Tennessee Titans did it for them.

After yesterday's 35-3 blowout, the victims acknowledged that the victors are almost unstoppable.

"If there's a team ahead of them that can beat them, I'll be surprised," Titans tackle Brad Hopkins said. "You don't want to fall behind in a place like this against a team like this.

"That's when ugliness happens."

The Colts, who clinched a playoff berth, didn't use as much flash as they have in the past.

Instead they put on a clinical show of both offence and defence including a 60-yard fumble return for a touchdown by hulking tackle Larry Tripplett.

"They bled us slowly, went methodically down the field and didn't miss a beat," Titans linebacker Keith Bullock said.

And on the topic of perfection, Titans quarterback Steve McNair said that's what it will take to stop the Colts, who now face a tough three-week stretch with games against Jacksonville, San Diego and Seattle.

"We thought that if we had played a perfect game, we could have won," McNair said. "They are a great team."
