Vicksburg natives DeMichael Harris and Malcolm Butler went head to head again Sunday night when the Indianapolis Colts took on the Tennessee Titans.

Butler led Titans to the 45-26 victory over the Colts, but both teams are having a great season.

Butler finished the game with 4 tackles and 1 interception for the Titans. Harris rushed one time for 2 yards and caught 1 pass for 1 yard for the Colts.
