Peyton Manning threw for 264 yards and four touchdowns, including two to Marvin Harrison that tied the NFL record for most touchdowns between a quarterback and receiver, and visiting Indianapolis put concerns about its offense to rest.
Harrison caught nine passes for 109 yards, and Edgerrin James ran for 90 yards in helping the Colts improve to 4-0 with their highest point total this season.
"I guess we won't have to answer the question what is wrong with the offense now," Colts Coach Tony Dungy said.
Tennessee is the NFL's youngest team and its inexperience showed. Drives ended repeatedly with dropped passes, including one that turned into an interception, costly penalties and two timeouts wasted in a march that finished with a missed field goal.
Manning and the Colts were numbingly efficient and had fans streaming to the exits midway through the third quarter. They rolled up 364 yards with four drives that stretched 69 yards or longer.
Manning connected with Harrison on an 11-yard touchdown pass for a 17-3 lead just before halftime for Harrison's 100th career scoring catch. They tied Steve Young and Jerry Rice for most touchdowns between a quarterback and receiver with 85 on a 24-yard pass with 13 minutes 9 seconds left in the game.
